Honestly, if I saw the following scene, the least of my concerns would be the carpet:
GAH! THEY’RE EVERYWHERE.
Instead, I’d be wondering exactly how this multicultural mix of little ankle-biters infested my home, and HOLY CRAP ARE THEY DRINKING WINE?
In all fairness, this probably happens all the time in Italy.
If I have a bunch of drunk, dexterous babies mobilizing inside my house, it’s pretty obviously a sign of the end of days. Forget the carpet. Get me a nerf-gun loaded with binkies. Either that, or I’ll have to tummy-kiss my way out.

Riddle me this …
Given the seemingly infinite number of symbols that exist in the world, why would you choose one that, for most people, holds a negative connotation?
“YOU WILL EAT ZEE PEACHES, UND LIKE IT!”
The Reter Fruit Company of Medford, OR, uses an Iron Cross as its logo. I know, I know – the cross existed long before WWII, and that it’s not inherently racist. But when you’re using a symbol whose Wikipedia page features the line, “See Also: Orders, decorations, and medals of Nazi Germany,” you might want to consider re-branding.
Though on the plus side, you could get Schultz as your spokesperson!
