A father watched his daughter playing in the garden on a beautiful Texas spring day.
He smiled as he reflected on how sweet and innocent his little girl was.
Suddenly she just stopped and stared intently at the ground.
He went over to her concerned there might be a snake;
he saw 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, Daddy?" she asked.
"That's a Daddy Longlegs." Her father answered.
"So, the other one is Mommy Longlegs?" the little girl asked.
"No," her father replied. "Both of them are Daddy Longlegs."
The little girl thought for a moment, then took her foot and stomped them flat.
"Well, that might be ok in California, Oregon and Massachusetts but we're not having any of that sh:t in Texas!
