First grade teacher explains to her class that she is an american.

She asks her students to raise their hands if they were american too.

Not really knowing why, but wanting to be like their teacher, their
hands explode into the air like flashy fireworks.

There is, however, one exemption. A girl named Kristen has not gone
along with the crowd.

The teacher asks her why she has decided to be different.

"Because I am not american"

"Then", asks the teacher, "What are you?".

"I'm a proud Canadian," boasts the little girl.

The teacher is a little troubled now, her face slightly red. She asks
Kristen why she is a Canadian

"Well, my mom and dad are both Canadians, so I'm a Canadian 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?"

The little girl pauses, then smiles. "Then," says Kristen, "I'd be an
american"
