On the first day of school Miss Whitaker explained to her 1st Grade Class that she’s a Dallas Cowboys fan and asked her students to raise their hands if they, too, were Cowboys fans.
Wanting to impress their teacher, everyone in the class raised their hand except Mary Jane.
The teacher looks at the girl with surprise. “Why, Mary Jane. Why on EARTH didn’t you raise your hand?’
‘Because I’m not a Cowboys fan,’ she replied.
The class gasped in shock.
‘Well, if you are not a Cowboys fan, then who are you a fan of?’ Miss Whitaker asked.
‘I’m a Redskins fan, and proud of it,’ Mary Jane replied.
Miss Whitaker couldn’t believe her ears. ‘Mary Jane. Please tell the class WHY you are a Redskins fan?’
‘Because my mom is a Redskins fan, and my dad is a Redskins fan, so I’m an Redskins fan too!’
Well,’ Miss Whitaker huffed, ‘that’s no reason for YOU to be a Redskins fan. You don’t have to be JUST like your parents all of the time. What if your mom was a moron and your dad was a moron? What would you be then?’
Janie smiled, ‘I’d be a Cowboys fan.’
