The Fable of Little Johnny

Contrairimairi has forwarded this fable of Little Johnny. I have not confirmed the facts with the Elmira school district.


A teacher in Elmira, New York asked her 6th grade class how many of them were Obama fans. Not really knowing what an Obama fan is, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for Little Johnny.

The teacher asked Little Johnny why he has decided to be different again.

Little Johnny said, "Because I'm not an Obama fan."

The teacher asked, "Why aren't you an Obama fan?"

Johnny said, "Because I'm a Republican."

The teacher asked him why he's a Republican.

Little Johnny answered, "Well, my Mom's a Republican and my Dad's a Republican, so I'm a Republican."

Annoyed by this answer, the teacher asked, "If your mom was a moron and your dad was an idiot, what would that make you?"

With a big smile, Little Johnny replied, "That would make me an Obama fan."

: ) Little Johnny - wise beyond his years.

My teenaged son Joseph made an interesting observation as well.

He told me that "Joe Biden looks like a clown and belongs in a circus."

My response, "Biden is a clown, and DOES work for a circus, it's called Congress."
