Are you an Alabama Elephant?

A first grade teacher explains to her class that she is an Alabama Elephant. She asks her students to raise their hands if they are Elephants too. No one really knowing what an Alabama Elephant was, but wanting to be like their teacher, their hands explode into the air like flashy fireworks. There is, however, one exception. A boy named John who has not gone along with the crowd. The teacher asks him why he has decided to be different. "Because I'm not an Elephant." Then, asks the teacher, "what are you?" "Why, I'm a proud Auburn Tiger," boasts the little boy. The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red. She asks John why he is a rebel. "Well, my mom and dad are Tigers, so I'm a Tiger 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 John, "I'd be an Alabama Elephant."
