In a CA (can't answer) rulebreaker, the rule decides whether I can answer a question or not. If I can't answer, I'll say CA. Your job is to ask questions and watch my answers until you determine the rule!

Ask away!

Is it red herring? It's a subspecies called spotted orange herring.
Or yellow babelfish? No, a babelfish would be nice to have though.
Do you like fishing? You can say I developed a certain distaste for it since I got a fish hook in my neck once.
What's the time? 23:23
Is it raining outside? CA
How is your dog doing? CA
And what about your cat? My cat is painting roses and elephants on a barn door. Then again it may just be the LSD.

Just as a wild guess, is the rule that you cannot answer questions with an even number of letters? No, numbers are not involved.

At this point, we are trying to figure out what the members of this set of words have in common, which is neither grammatical nor have anything to do with the letters within? Indeed.
Hint: without counting, I'd guess that you've found about half of the words. The source is famous, especially in the US.
