A bit of geologic wisdom from the four-year-old

My four-year-old and I were discussing... I don't remember, actually, but I think it had to do with whether the South Pole was at the bottom of the Earth or not. And then, out of nowhere, he told me:

"You can't eat the earth's crust."

Remember that, next time someone asks: "did you lick it?"

"You can't eat the earth's crust."

I'd like to debate him on this point...

Well, he also says he can't eat bread crusts, pizza crusts, broccoli stems, funny-shaped carrots, and the middle parts of lettuce leaves. But, you know, he's four.

(Debating him can be very entertaining.)
