On the first day of school an Atlanta first grade teacher explains to her class that she is a Falcons fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they are Falcon fans too.
Wanting to impress the teacher, everyone in the class raises their hand except one girl.
The teacher looks at the girl with surprise, "Janie, why didn't you raise your hand?
Because I'm not a Falcons fan" she replied.
The teacher, still shocked asked "We'll, if you are not a Falcons fan then who are you a fan of?
I am a Saints fan and proud of it" Janie replied.
The teacher could not believe her ears. "Janie, please tell us why you are a Saints fan?
Because my Mom is a Saints fan, my Dad is a Saints fan, so I'm a Saints fan too!"
"We'll", said the teacher in an obviously annoyed tone, "that is no reason for you to be a Saints fan. You don't have to be just like your parents all of the time. What if your Mom was an idiot and you Dad was a moron, what would you be then?"
"Then", Janie smiled, I'd be a Falcons fan!"
