A father watched his daughter playing in the garden.

He smiled as he reflected on how sweet and innocent his little girl was. Suddenly she just stopped and stared at the ground. He went over to her 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, Daddy?" she asked. "That's a daddy longlegs," her father answered.

"So, the other one is a 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, we're not having any of THAT in our garden!", she said.
