Proud Canadian

A US first  grade teacher explains to her class that she is an American.
She asks her students to raise their hands if they are 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 really  angry. "That's no reason," she says loudly. "What if your mom was a crappy  hockey player, and your dad was a crappy hockey  player? Would that mean  that you're a crappy hockey player too?"
A pause, and a smile.   Then, says  Kristen, "Nope! That'd mean I'm an  American!"
