Amy Poehler Challenges Jimmy Fallon To See If He's 'Smarter Than A Smart Girl'

"If you have nine pizzas and then cut each pizza into eight slices, how many slices do you have?"

Amy Poehler was a guest on The Tonight Show last night, which gave her the chance to raise awareness about Amy Poehler's Smart Girls, an organization founded by Poehler and producer Meredith Walker that aims to help young people cultivate their authentic selves. 

"We emphasize intelligence and imagination over 'fitting in,' " the organization's team wrote on its website. "We celebrate curiosity over gossip. We are a place where people can truly be their weird and wonderful selves." 

During her appearance on The Tonight Show, Poehler and host Jimmy Fallon got to team up with a pair of smart girls, Anaya and Maya, during a game of Are You Smarter Than a Smart Girl? The celebrities faced off in a game of trivia on topics such as math, grammar, U.S. history, and geography. 

Luckily, they had Anaya and Maya to help them because those girls know everything from prepositions to the inventor of bifocals to the large lake that lies high in the Andes on the border of Peru and Bolivia. Do you?

Regardless of who got the most points in the end, it's clear that Anaya and Maya are the real winners here. During this segment, they got to remind everyone that young girls can be great at math, grammar, and history, while also being passionate about duct tape fashion and rapping Hamilton songs. Despite standing next to two beloved celebrities, these young girls' personalities — and their wit — truly shined. And that's no easy feat.
