Post Proud Canadian

A 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 exception. 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 an American."
Then, asks the teacher, what are you?
"I'm a proud Canadian," boasts the little girl.
The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face
slightly red.
She asks Kristen why she is a Canadian.
"Well, my mom and dad are 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?"
A pause, and a smile. "Then," says Kristen, "I'd be
an American."

Not funny.

We make fun of Americans for their 'moral majority', their trailer parks, and their President, silly. But seriously... the U.S. likely doesn't have many more, or less, stupid people per capita than Canada. No need to make negative personal generalizations about everyone in a given country.

"Hello there sir, would you like a date?" "PROSTITUTE! I am an officer of the law!!! Which means THE ANSWER IS YES!

In bad taste it may be. It still produced a chuckle from me when I received it.

Which is all great and everything... but all it does by being posted is start another America-Canada flame war. *shrugs* Ah well, shit happens.

Moral of the story: Canadians disrupt class.

I didn't find the joke the least bit offensive. Those wanting to find conflict where there is none, will find it sooner or later though.

Not only am I a sexually deviant, misogynistic, immoral, wealthy, male prostitute, but I also sit on the board of directors of the organization that governs others of my kind.

Normally with a first grade class, all the students have the same nationality
