Those In-Bred Yanks

I’m so thankful the two first cousins who’ve made national news by wanting to get married do not live in the south.

Have you heard the story? The Pennsylvania couple went to a judge to exchange vows, but when he learned they were first cousins he turned them away. The couple then went to Maryland where they promote in-breeding and tied the knot.

Jay Leno and Rush Limbaugh have been talking about it, but what’s interesting is that only about half of the states forbid first cousins to marry.

You can marry your cousin in Mississippi, my neighbor married his cousin back in the 1960s, I’m sure you know Jerry Lee Lewis’ story.

By the way, if you’d like to buy the happy Pennsylvania couple a gift, they’re registered at “Two-Headed Babies R Us”.
