A first grade teacher explains to her class that she is a Dallas Cowboys fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they were Cowboys fans too. Not really knowing what a Cowboys fan was but wanting to be like their teacher, their hands explode into the air like fleshy fireworks.
There is, however, one exception. A girl named Mary has not gone along with the crowd. The teacher asks her why she has decided to be different.
"Because I'm not a Cowboys fan."
Then, asks the teacher, "What are you?"
"Why I'm proud to be a "Washington Redskins fan" boasts the little girl.
The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red. She asks Mary why she is a Redskins fan.
"Well, My Dad and Mom are Redskins fans, and I'm a Redskins fan too."
The teacher is now angry. "That's no reason," she says loudly. "What if your mom was a moron, and your dad was a moron. What would you be then?"
A pause, and a smile. "Then," says Mary, "I'd be a Dallas Cowboys fan."
