Superman prank

One of the funniest things I did to Morgan:
When she was still learning to read, about 5 years old, I took out this copy of Superman, a public service announcement about the land mines in Bosnia. It was an outreach program to stop kids from picking up discarded landmines.
As she started to read, she got as far as "Superman." The comic was written for Bosnian children, in their European language with their alphabet system. She couldn't figure out why the letters looked so strange. She thought she was going crazy because she was a pretty good reader at that point.
I eventually let her in on the joke. I'm mean, aren't I?
