Morning, Kossacks.

This is a brief diary but every once in a while I like to share something fun that I found. Some of you may have seen this already but I didn't see it diaried, and hey, some of you surely haven't, so I am sharing.

This one showed up on a friend's Facebook feed today. It's a video of a little kid, Calen, (and I am going to quote part of the top comment on the YouTube video which has been viewed nearly 200,000 times), "[understanding] a concept in less than a minute that some people can't grasp during 80 years, and went onto play ping pong." (And inviting the men to play as well.)

Cheers for Calen's youthful innocence and understanding; it's something I wish more adults could possess. Video and transcript below the fold.

A Kids' Reaction to Gay Couple

Thanksgiving

Calen: A husband is a boy...

Right.

Calen: A wife is a girl and a husband is a boy. Then you two are husbands? Wives are girls, husbands are boys...

Right, that's right. So if you're a boy...

Calen: You'll be a husband.

Husband 1: Right. Husband 2: Yeah, we're both husbands.

Calen: You're both husbands...you married each other? That's funny.

That's funny right?

Calen: Yeah. I always see husbands and wives. But this is the VERY FIRST TIME I saw husbands and husbands!

Laughs

Calen: So funny.

INSERT MOMENT OF REALIZATION
(On a side note, I love how he uses his hands when he says the next part, as if he is grasping the concept.)

Calen: SO THAT MEANS YOU LOVE EACH OTHER...

Yeah.

Calen: Yay-yuh! You're alike, you're much alike. Hey, I'm gonna go play ping pong now.

Ok!

Calen: You can play if you want to.

I hope this brought a smile to your day the way it did for me. Thanks for reading, and have a great week, friends.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
