kind or mean?

A particularly loathsome game where I asked the quiet kid in our class if he was kind or mean. When the response failed to come, the question would be repeated, only in a more complex variation, such as "Are you kind or are you mean? Because if you're mean you can't be kind, and if you're kind you can't be mean, which means your kind of mean, or are you mean of kind?" Occasionally I would throw in the odd chant of "MEAN CHILD" or "KIND BOY". Whatever the case, the game would only end when the subject was reduced to tears.
