Baby geniuses light up YouTube

YouTube isn't all amateur teen videos, robot demos and cringe-worthy clips of beauty-pageant contestants.

The video site is also filling up with homemade clips from proud parents. The baby geniuses are sweeping YouTube.

Her parents said they posted the clip in response to the 2007 Miss Teen USA contestant who botched world geography and the English language in less than a minute. More parents followed by showing off their kids' skills. And here's a clip from Oprah on a little girl who can recite Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech.
