A Congressman was seated next to a little girl on the airplane when he
turned to her and said, 'Let's talk. I've heard that flights go
quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger'

The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and
said to the total stranger, 'What would you like to talk about?'

'Oh, I don't know,' said the congressman. 'How about global warming
or universal health care', and he smiles 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 of dried grass. 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 or universal health care when you don't know

[disclaimer: this is the JOKE BANK forum]

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

And an excellent one, garlicguy!

Especially since the answer is quite easy: not all animals need the same nutriment, and thus their digestive tract (and intestinal flora) treats the food differently in order to extract what they need and get rid of what they don't. So depending on what they don't, their poop will have different appearances.

Additionaly, there could be more than grass in their diet, and we all know that what we eat changes what we... excrete.

Hem. Is that too nerdy an answer for the joke bank? [Big Grin]
