My Little Pony
Don’t let the pastels fool you. It’s not as innocent as it looks.

Never underestimate the smarts of a 3-year-old. Never.

A little girl (who’s no stranger to smartness) was recently shopping with her dad when she came up with an ingenious way to get him to buy her a My Little Pony: offer her love in exchange for the doll. Or, more specifically, threaten to withhold her love if she didn’t get the doll.

Here’s where the smart part came in — she didn’t actually say she wouldn’t love him if he didn’t buy it for her. She said she “won’t be able to.” It’s a subtle and yet enormous distinction. The mafia would be proud.

It didn’t work, but you can’t blame a girl for trying.

Take a look:
