Most parents would shy away from declaring one child their favorite — but that’s exactly what one airline’s security question is asking people to determine.

A Twitter user shared a screenshot from JetBlue’s website on Sunday that showed a screen for setting up security questions to protect users’ accounts. The question selected in the screenshot was, “What is the name of your favorite child?”

“JetBlue savage for this,” the user wrote alongside the photo.

On Tuesday, JetBlue’s Twitter account retweeted the photo, boldly stating: “Say it. You know you have one.”

Put down the phone: You can now chat with JetBlue for assistance

  Put down the phone: You can now chat with JetBlue for assistance You can now forget JetBlue’s hold music. Starting today, users of JetBlue’s iOS app can now chat with the airline instead of picking up the phone. JetBlue quietly released Version 4.10 of the airline’s app to the iOS App Store. As part of the release notes, JetBlue notes that “JetBlue is available on chat! You can now connect with a JetBlue crewmember through our in-app chat for assistance—tap ‘More’, then ‘Help’ to get started.”© The Points GuyWhen I saw the news, I immediately updated my JetBlue app and took the feature for a spin.

The tweet quickly racked up more than a thousand likes, and garnered a plethora of comedic responses.

One user of the social media platform shared a GIF of “baby Yoda” from the new Disney+ series The Mandalorian, writing, “If I didn’t have a child this would be my answer all day long.”

The JetBlue account responded in Yoda-like fashion, commenting, “Hard to argue with, this choice is.”

Many users found the tweet hilarious, and still others could relate to the sentiment. As one user wrote, “I’m showing this to my dad. My name is incorporated in all of his passwords.”

While JetBlue’s tweet was written jokingly — the question itself could be considered a good one for security reasons.

According to the Good Security Questions website, poor questions cause the user to either forget their answer, or can be easily guessed by other people. Theoretically, it’d be pretty difficult to forget your child’s name — and we can bet that if parents do have a favorite offspring, that’s not information they’d make many other people privy to.

The website says that signs of a good security question include the answer staying the same over long periods of time, simplicity, and a multitude of possible answers.

JetBlue did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
