Chuckle du jour

A reader sent this.

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?"  And 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, 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 she went back to reading her book.


  1. Huzzah!!
    I thought it was your daughter until the last line and I could never picture thm using that kind of language to a stranger (and what is stranger then a congresscritter?)


  2. And to complicate matters, there is sheep, and lion, and moose and mouse, and human "leavings". There's more poop in the world than common sense, by a long shot!

  3. Funny, I thought that Congressmen had a PhD in bullsh*t. Could have fooled me.

    Kick'em all out!
