A first grade teacher explains to her class that she is
a NY Mets fan. She asks her students to raise their hands
if they are Mets fans too. Not really knowing what a Mets
fan is, but wanting to be liked by their teacher, their
hands fly into the air. There is, however, one exception.
A little boy named Charlie has not gone along with the
crowd. The teacher asks him why he has decided to be
"Because I'm not a Mets fan" he retorts.
"Then," asks the teacher,"what are you?"
"I'm a proud NY Yankees fan!" boasts the little boy.
The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly
red. She asks Charlie why he is a Yankees fan.
"Well, my Dad and Mom are Yankees fans, so I'm a Yankees
fan too" he responds. The teacher is now angry. "That's
no reason," she says loudly.
"What if your Mom was an asshole, and your dad was an idiot.
What would you be then?"
Charlie smiles and says, "Then I'd be a Mets fan."
