Little Girl on a Plane

Published on by

    A Congressman was seated next to a little girl on an airplane so he
turned to her and said, "Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you
strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger." The little girl, who
had just started to read her book, replied to the total stranger, "What
would you want to talk about?" "Oh, I don't know," said the congressman.
"How about global warming, universal health care, or stimulus packages?" as
he smiled smugly. "OK," she said. "Those could be interesting topics, but
let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same
stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a
flat patty, and a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?" The
legislator, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks
about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea." To which the little girl replies,
"Do you really feel qualified to discuss global warming, universal health
care, or the economy, when you don't know shit?" And then she went back to
reading her book.
