Irony.

A puppet troupe is coming to Gus’s school today to teach the kids about “Accepting Differences”. This morning, Gus was nervously eying the flyer, which features various puppets of color smiling for a group picture.

“I don’t like these puppets,” he said. “I don’t want them to come to my school.”

“Why?”

“Because they’re scary.”

“Why are they scary?”

“Because they’re weird, and they don’t look like us.”
