I grew up in western PA and I live now in the deepest part of the Deep South now. I deeply resent  submitter's implication that southerners can hold a candle to my native Appalachia when it comes to cousin-farking.

Down here there are no mountains, and mountains are what makes it too goddamn much work to go fark someone you're not already related to.

Besides, it's not all bad. Sure, I don't clot so well, but I can taste purple and if you're a redhead I can hear your thoughts.

My ex-husband and I couldn't stop ourselves from asking if the county clerk needed proof that we were related by blood before getting married.

GGracie: No farking shiat!!!
Have you seen the royal family???
You don't get ears that big and teeth that long unless you cross an elephant with a badger!
Seriously, money that could help the poor become educated was put towards the biggest derp study in history.  Farking morons!


To be fair though, honey-badger just don't give a shiat.

Here's the family tree of Charles II of Spain.  It's an interesting story, for those who haven't seen this before.

If you look, you'll note multiple cases of uncles marrying nieces, and as each generation goes by, they become more and more inbred.  And here's how he turned out:

The Habsburg King Charles II of Spain was sadly degenerated with an enormous misshapen head. His Habsburg jaw stood so much out that his two rows of teeth could not meet; he was unable to chew. His tongue was so large that he was barely able to speak. His intellect was similarly disabled. His brief life consisted chiefly of a passage from prolonged infancy to premature senility. Charles' family was anxious only to prolong his days and thought little about his education, so that he could barely read or write.

Jebediah Springfield: People, our search is over! On this site we shall build a new town where we can worship freely, govern justly, and grow vast fields of hemp for making rope and blankets.

Shelbyville Manhattan: Yes! And marry our cousins.

Jebediah Springfield: I was- wha... what are you talking about, Shelbyville? Why would we want to marry our cousins?

Shelbyville Manhattan: Because they're so attractive. I... I thought that was the whole point of this journey.
