Purple Passion? One day in school a boy named Dan overheard a group of boys talking about purple passion. He did not know what this was, so he figured that he would go ask his teacher what purple passion was. He got up went to his teacher and asked what purple passion was. The teacher looked at Dan and could not believe what was coming out of his mouth, and sent Daniel down to the principal's office. He went into the principal's office and she said, "Yes Daniel what did you do?" Daniel said, "I asked my teacher a question and she sent me down to you." The principal asked what was the question, Daniel replied, "What is purple passion?" The Principal looked at Daniel and told him to get out of her school and he was suspended till further notice. Dan perplexed decided to go home, he did not understand what was going on. When he walked in the door his mother asked him why he was home early? He said, "I asked my teacher a question, and she sent him down to the principal's office, when he got to the principal she told me to get out of the school and that I was suspended." Daniels mother said, "Well it cannot be that bad what is it?" Dan asked, "What is purple passion?" His mother yelled at Daniel and told him to go upstairs and wait for his father to come home. Now Dan was really starting to wonder what was going on and waited for his father to come home. His dad came up and said what happened today. Dan said, "He asked his teacher a question and she sent him down to the principal's office then she said that I was suspended until further notice, and then asked mom and she told me to come up here and wait for you. His father replied, "Well it cannot be that bad, it's just a question, what is it?" Dan asked the question slowly, "What is purple passion?" His father could not believe what just came out of his son's mouth. He stood up and told Dan to leave his home immediately. Now Dan was out on his own, did not know where to go so he felt he should go to the church to pray, and try to figure out what was going on. After sitting in the church for a bit a priest came up to him and said, "Boy you seem very distressed, what's wrong?" Dan replied, "It all started off in school when I asked my teacher a question and my teacher told me to go to the principal's office, and my principal, then suspended me for the same thing. So I went home and asked my mom the same question and she told me to go wait upstairs for my father. I asked my father and he told me to get out of his house and he did not want to see me and now I am here. The priest said, "Well god forgives you what is the question?" Dan says, "What's purple passion?" The priest picks the boy up and tells him he thinks he is the devil and demands him to get out of his church. Daniel ran out of the church and ran across the road and got hit by a car. His parents met him at the hospital and said, "Didn't we tell you to look both ways before you cross the road!"
