Sometimes children are a lot smarter than we give them credit for.

Like this little girl, for instance, who knew how to make a point to a politician she met on an airplane.

Check out the conversation she had with this congressman, you’ll be laughing, I promise.

While on a flight, a congressman was seated next to a little girl who was quietly reading her book.

The congressman turned to the little girl and asked, “Do you want to chat? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with a fellow passenger.”

The little girl put her book down on her lap and said, “What do you want to talk about?”

“Oh, I don’t know,” said the congressman.

“How about global warming, universal health care or stimulus packages?” he continued, smiling smugly.

“Those could be interesting topics, but let me ask you a question first,” she started.

“A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff — grass.

Yet a deer poops little pellets, while a cow makes a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you think that is?” She asked.

The congressman, surprised by the question and the little girl’s intelligence, thinks about it and says, “Hmm, I have no idea!”

The little girl picked up her book and opens it to the page she left off at.

“Do you really feel qualified to discuss global warming, universal health care, or the economy when you don’t know shit, sir?” She asked and went back to reading her book.
