Fandom in Perspective...

    A first-grade teacher explains to her class that she is a Packer Fan.  She asks her students to raise their hands if they are Packer Fans too.  No one really knew what a Packer was, but wanting to be like their teacher, their hands explode into the air like flashy fireworks.  There is, however, one exception.  A girl named Kristen has not gone along with the crowd.  The teacher asks her why she has decided to be different.

   “Because I’m not a Packer fan.”

   “Then”, asks the teacher, “what are you?”

   “Why, I’m a proud Bear fan,” boasts the little girl.

    The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red.  She asks Kristen why she is a Bear fan. 

    “Well, my mom and dad are both Bear fans, so I’m a Bear 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 Kristen, “I’d be a Packer fan!”
