> A father watched his young daughter playing in the garden. He smiled as
> he reflected on how sweet and pure his little girl was.
> Tears formed in his eyes as he thought about her seeing the wonders of
> nature through such innocent eyes. Suddenly she just stopped and stared
> at the ground. He went over to her to see what work of God had captured
> her attention. He noticed she was looking at two spiders mating.
> "Daddy, what are those two spiders doing?" she asked.
> "They're mating," her father replied.
> "What do you call the spider on top?" she asked.
> "That's a Daddy Long-legs," her father answered.
> "So, the other one is a Mummy Long-legs?" the little girl asked.
> As his heart soared with the joy of such a cute and innocent question he
> replied "No dear. Both of them are Daddy Long-legs
> The little girl, looking a little puzzled, thought for a moment, then
> took her foot and stomped them flat. "Well, we're not having any of that
> queer sh*t going on in our garden" she said.
