Look at the hats on these students, very Spanish.

Anyone want to guess what TV show the boy was in?

  1. Good choices! Interesting how the figure of a nun with children evolved into a stereotype cliche. I’m not sure it remains so recognizable in contemporary American culture. Many children today might mistake the Catholic habit for a Muslim woman’s garb.
