A's a bit limp, a bit middle-aged

It's still

B

B in a walk

and not just so I can say that I was knocked out by the eventual champion.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Hope that praise isn't too faint. :P

I like both a lot but I think A just edges it.
I run out of talent
