'Jimmy Kimmel Live' asked kids on the street what gay marriage is.

This video is adorable, but it also makes a good point. It's like Kids Say the Darndest Things meets Thomas Paine's Common Sense.

One of the classic criticisms of gay marriage is this: "How do I explain it to my kids?" It always seemed like less of a criticism and more of an admission of bad parenting skills to me, but Jimmy Kimmel and his staff decided to take it seriously. They figured the best way to settle the issue would be to flip the script, and have kids explain gay marriage to adults.
