On this day:

A first grade teacher in London explains to her class that she is a Manchester United fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they, too, are Manchester United 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 Manchester United fan " she replied. The teacher, still shocked, asked "Well, if you are not a Manchester United fan, then who are you a fan of?"

"I am an Arsenal fan," Janie replied. The teacher could not believe her ears. "Janie, WHY are you Arsenal fan?" "Because my Mom is an Arsenal fan, my Dad is an Arsenal fan, so I am an Arsenal fan also."

"Well" said the teacher, in an obviously annoyed tone, "that is no reason for you to be an Arsenal fan. You don't have to be just like your parents all the time. What if your Mom was a snotty arrogant jackass and your Dad was a snotty arrogant jackass, what would you be then?"

"Then" Janie smiled, "We'd be Manchester United fans."
