Things Got Real Dark In This Washington Post Interview With A 9 Year Old

What an incredible amount of self-awareness by this Washington Post Magazine reporter who was sent to interview a 9 year old taekwondo instructor. Reminds me of the scene from Bruce Almighty when he’s on the boat interviewing the old lady at Niagra Falls. When you just give up and realize, “Well, this is it. This is the rest of my life.”

To be fair though, it’s light hearted, albeit honest questions like that which would save the dying newspaper industry.

And what an equally awesome answer from the kid, who probably turned into the Mr. Krabs meme when the reporter started getting real deep with him about life and the universe and what it all means.

The kid was a great interview though. Maybe the best ever?

9 years old and already dreaming about bathing in money. This kid is going places.
