Garden Spiders

A father watched his young daughter playing in the garden. He smiled as he reflected on how sweet and pure his little girl was. He thought about her seeing the wonders of nature through such innocent eyes.

Suddenly, she stopped and stared at the ground.

He went over to her to see what work of God had captured her attention, and 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 Longlegs," her father answered.

"So, the other one is a Mommy Longlegs?" the little girl asked.

As his heart soared with the joy of such a cute and innocent question, he replied, "No dear, they are both Daddy Longlegs."

The little girl looked a little puzzled, thought for a moment, then raised her foot and stomped them flat.

Then she said, "We're not having any of that Brokeback-Mountain shit in our garden."
