Sixteen-year-old Malala Yousafzai brought down the house at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart when asked what she would do if attacked again by a Taliban gunman.

“I would tell him how important education is and that I would even want education for your children as well,” the Pakistani girl said. “That’s what I want to tell you, now do what you want.”

The audience Tuesday gave her a thunderous ovation, and Stewart, who listened intently as she spoke, then made her an offer.

“I know your father is backstage and he is very proud of you, but would he be mad if I adopted you?”

The audience roared with laughter.

Malala is a nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize for her courage in the face of death threats in her home country of Pakistan over her advocacy of education for girls. On Thursday, she won the European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought.

Malala was shot in the head and neck one year ago on her school bus by a gunman who was sent by the Taliban, the Muslim clerical group that believes in adherence to a strict version of Islamic law.
