Boy wonder Arden Hayes last appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! back in July, when he wowed both Jimmy and America writ large with his precocious presidential knowledge.

Well, as it turns out, Arden isn't just a Washington whiz — he's also a genius when it comes to geography.

On Tuesday, Kimmel invited Arden back to the show to show off his global smarts, and, naturally, he blew the audience members' puny minds yet again.

But the full extent of Arden's brilliance was apparently too much for Kimmel's production staff to handle, because they edited the most impressive part out of the clip they ultimately uploaded to YouTube.

After Arden passed the show's test with adorable colors, Kimmel handed him two thank you gifts: A globe-shaped puzzle, and a brand new Sony Xperia Z tablet — which Arden promptly rejected.

The reason why is hilarious, but Sony apparently didn't think so, which is why they most likely ordered that part scrubbed from the bit:

So instead of showing Arden getting one gift he loved and another one he didn't care for, viewers got to see neither, making Kimmel look like a jerk. Genius.
