The Rams fan

A first grade teacher in St. Louis explains to her class that she is a Rams fan.

She asks her students to raise their hands if they, too, are Rams fans. Everyone in the class raises their hand, except one little girl. The teacher looks at the girl with surprise and says, "Janie, why didn't you raise your hand?"

"Because I'm not a Rams fan," she replied.

The teacher, still shocked, asked, "Well, if you are not a Rams fan, then who are you a fan of?"

"I am a Patriots fan, and proud of it," Janie replied.

The teacher could not believe her ears. "Janie, why are you a Patriots fan?" "Because my Mom is a Patriots fan, and my dad is a Patriots fan, so I'm a Patriots fan too!"

"Well," said the teacher in an obviously annoyed tone, "that is no reason for you to be a Patriots 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?"

"Then," Janie smiled, "We'd be Rams fans."
