Little Girl on a Plane


Recommended Posts


Julia Gillard was seated next to a little girl on an airline flight to Canberra.

She turned to the little girl 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, "What would you like to talk about?"

"Oh, I don't know," said Julia. "How about global warming, refugee policy, or stimulus packages?"

"OK," the little girl 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 this is?"

Julia, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thought about it and said, "Hmmm, I have no idea."

To which the little girl replied, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss global warming, refugees, or the economy, when you don't know sh!t?"

She then went back to reading her book.
