Is his name Yao Ming?

Mrs. Educator passed along a good story today. Fed up with the zombie-like, rote, wooden nature of the kids’ Pledge of Allegiance recital in the mornings, she had them all write out the Pledge on paper. In addition to a myriad of misspellings, one thing really stood out to her.

One of our kids had written (and I guess has been saying), “One Asian, under God…”

And I’m proud to be an American…

Reminds me of the Calvin and Hobbes version

"I pledge allegiance, to Queen Frag, and her mighty state of hysteria . . ."

Not about the Pledge, although in the same vein,my mom had a student who told her that for YEARS he thought he and God had the same name. (Our Father, who art in Heaven, Howard be thy name...)

Or an old episode of Night Court, where Bull thought it was "Our Father, who is Art in Heaven."
(Art was the court maintenance man)
