Just for Fun Miscellaneous
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!”
