Kindergarteners - Smarter Than Roger Ebert

Okay, this is a cute little piece from the Timesonline, another 6-year-olds-describing-where-babies-come-from bit. Scroll down to a lad named Angus - it'll crack you up.

So, I wasn't going to link it - there are thousands of these circulating inboxes all the time. But when I tripped over this eyebrow raiser from Robert Ebert's website, I decided to after all. I mean, these tiny tots are at least half way more clued in than Mr. Two Thumbs Up. And, I think he's serious. I mean, somebody tell me it's a joke, please?

See how credibility can fall over, just like that?

The site was hacked. Ebert is not a 'creationist', metaphor for fearful one ie God will save me. We're all we got; grab a shovel.

Age difference notwithstanding, of course!

Oh,oh. The sheep are making it into this conversation now. Poor Jeff.

Baaaaaaaad Lorraine: You have marked this man for life. You'll never pull the "wool" over Jeff's eyes.

If anyone's interested, Roger Ebert's posted a blog entry here about the article on Creationsm. For those uninterested in reading it, the original article was intended to be satirical.

Forget Angus, Jennifer scares the bejeezus out of me!

I think Roger Ebert should leave satire alone and stick to movie ratings. He's not very good at it.
