U.S.A. Number 1!

As the great Dave Barry often writes in preface to his kooky tales, I swear I am not making this up.

I don't know what we were talking about that led to the subject of American history; sometimes boy genius Caleb just comes up with this stuff out of the blue. This morning, he told me the following (and this is an exact quote):

"Guess how we won the British versus American war. [me: How?] Because the British were stupidheads."

Yep, that about sums it up.

And I'm pretty sure the Soviets failed because they were a bunch of commie boogerbrain liars. Who smelled like poo.

  1. Haha! Out of the mouths of babes! That Caleb really knows of what he speaks, I'd say! :D

  2. I think your son ahs an excellent grasp of the overview, but is he up on the nuances? For instance, were tehy stupidheads who ate bugs? Were they liars liars pants on fire(s)?
    Or did they simply smell funny?

    Once he can answer these questions, he's a shoe-in for the next Ken Burns documentary.
    (And your son has a clearer Grasp of history than some of my history professors I remember.)
