You have all heard it before but a friend sent this to me this yesterday: A primary teacher starts a new job at a school in Bankstown and, trying to make a good impression on her first day, explains to her class that she is a Bulldogs fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they, too, are Bulldogs fans. Everyone in the class raises their hand except one little girl. The teacher looks at the girl with surprise and says: "Mary, why didn't you raise your hand?" "Because I'm not a Bulldogs fan," she replied. The teacher, still shocked, asked: "Well, if you're not a Bulldogs fan, then who are you a fan of?" I'm a Sea Eagles fan, and proud of it," Mary replied. The teacher could not believe her ears. "Mary, why are you a Sea Eagles fan?" Mary then replied "Because my mum and dad are from Dee Why, and so my mum is a Sea Eagles fan and my dad is a Sea Eagles fan, so I'm a Sea Eagles fan too!" "Well," said the teacher, in an obviously annoyed tone, "that's no reason for you to be a Sea Eagles fan. You don't have to be just like your parents all of the time. What if your mum was a prostitute, your dad was a drug addict, and your brother was a car thief, what would you be then?" "Then," Mary said, "I'd be a Bulldogs fan." !!!
