April Fools, sucker!

April 3, 2009 at 7:39 pm (funny jokes, genealogy)

For those of you on Facebook, you might know about the “We’re Related” section.  Imagine my utter shock when I got a notification telling me that Barack Obama is admitting being related to me by way of being a fourth cousin.  I was really shocked but didn’t think too much of it considering he does have some Irish in him.

I tried to click on the link to see “how we are related” but it kept giving me an error.  I tried a day later and this is what I got:

    I’m surprised considering you two look so much alike.

    That’s funny. I’m Irish, too. I suspect everyone has a bit ‘o green in the line, don’t you think??? If not, I pity them!

    That’s an O’Bummer! 😦

    (P.S.: After I read you were “related,” I got a note saying I was related too — and that’s when my red light went off — because even though I actually AM related to the Prez, I didn’t have anything about it posted online!)

    Sorry, Teri! But you’re not black, so that should’ve tipped you off…

    It would have been funnier if it was actually funny.

    I’m related to Diana Ross, btw. I don’t talk about her much since she’s always been the black sheep of the family..

    So Teri, we all know you were gullible and possibly frantically desperate enough to believe that there was a slim chance you could have been related to B.O. (even though you’re not black), but I think it’s time for a new post. Surely there’s something else you can share with us…

    … I mean, it’s been, like, 10 days….

    I was wondering what the hell that was all about. I ignored him. As much as I heart Barack, I know that there’s no way he’s part of my crazy ass family.
