(Newser) – It's hardly a newsflash that the goings-on of Congress are enough to put a boy to sleep. But there's a bit of dark humor to be found in this video, notes New York. First, it's not just any boy: The grandson of Rep. Ted Poe gets caught nodding off during grandpop's speech to the chamber. Second, he dozes during what's arguably more scintillating-than-usual congressional fare: His grandfather was recounting horrific examples of extreme domestic violence, ie: "He poured the gasoline over her head, and he set her on fire." Ah, youth.
