LITTLE GIRL ON A PLANE
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
"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, but 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
