This made me laugh out loud. I must give thanks here to Esther at A Catholic Mom in Hawaii. Check out her great blog!
A young polar bear cub approached his mother one day and asked,
"Mom, am I a polar bear?"
"Of course you are," she replied with a smile.
"OK," said the cub, and padded off.
Later, he found his dad out by the iceberg.
"Dad, am I a polar bear?"
"Sure you are, son!" said his dad, wondering a bit at why his son would ask such a silly thing.
The next day, the cub asked the question again and again.
"Are you and Mom polar bears? You are? Well, then, does that make me a polar bear? Pure, 100% polar bear?"
Finally, his parents couldn't stand it any longer. "Son, you're driving us crazy with this question! You are a polar bear! Why do you keep asking?
The cub looked up and confessed,"Cause I'm FREEZING!"
