On Day Two of his marathon Supreme Court nomination hearings, Neil Gorsuch was served up a question from the teenage son of Arizona senator Jeff Flake, which you may or may not have heard before—depending upon how much time you spend on Reddit.

“Ask him if he would rather fight 100 duck-sized horses or 1 horse-sized duck," the Republican from Arizona said, voicing the direction/commands of his son, Dallin. Gorsuch, for his part, was unaware of just how one would respond to such a bizarre query (for the record, Obama said he'd fight the horse-sized duck):

Flake posed the internet-famous hypothetical after asking his family what question they would ask. What followed was a moment of levity (or a total waste of a question, your call).

Anyway, here's the video of Gorsuch's bewildered response. Feel free to point out that we're looking for someone who can make decisions here:

Democracy in action, people. If there's a flaw, we haven't seen it.
