My Favorite Animal

by Kicking Bear

 

When I was just a kid my teacher asked us what our favorite animal was, and I said, “Fried chicken.”

 

She said I wasn’t funny, but she couldn’t have been right, ’cause everyone else in the class laughed.

My grandparents told me to always be truthful and honest, and I am. Fried chicken is my favorite animal. I told my grandfather what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much. I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef.

Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal’s office. I told him what happened, and he laughed too. Then he told me not to do it again.

The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was. I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, just like she’d asked the other children. So I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken. She sent me back to the principal’s office again. He laughed, and told me not to do it again.

I didn’t understand. My grandparents taught me to be honest, but my teacher didn’t like it when I was. The next day, my teacher asked us to tell her what famous person we admire most.

I told her, “Colonel Sanders”.

Guess where I went…
