can girls eat this?

To set the stage a bit, the boys and I were eating lunch yesterday and Liam was finished, but still hungry so I told him to get himself a yogurt from the fridge. He chose a mixed berry one. On the front of the container, it was obvious that the printing machine had missed the mark with the red ink, so the raspberry ended up looking a greenish yellow.

Liam: What kind of berries are green?
me: (not really paying attention since I was nursing Andrew) I'm not sure.
Liam: boysenberries? (at least that's what I thought I heard)
me: Sure.
Liam: Maybe this is boysenberry yogurt.
me: Hmmm, it could be.
Liam: Well are you sure I should eat it? IF THERE'S POISON IN IT??
me: (paying attention now) Poison?? (cluing in) No, Liam, it's BOYSENberry. With a 'B', "buh".
Liam: Ohhhh, BOYSENberry.

(a short pause, then)

Liam: Can girls eat boysenberries?

The fact that I am half Portuguese and half Native American/Canadian French doesn't make it too authentic though)
