Her father is the brother of my mom. Like, we grew up together, and she grew up hot, you know, she fucking grew up hot. And all my friends are trying to fuck her, you know, and I'm not gonna let one of these assholes fuck my cousin. So I used the cousin thing, as like, an in with her. I'm not like, gonna let someone else fuck my cousin, you know? If anyone's gonna fuck my cousin, it's gonna be me. Out of respect.
Who would've guessed, her family crest,
I'd suddenly spy, tattooed on her thigh.
And son of a gun, it's just like the one on me.
How was I supposed to know we were both related?
I swear that if I,
knew she was my cousin, we never would've dated.
What to do now?
Should I go ahead and propose,
and get hitched and have kids with eleven toes and,
move to Alabama where that kind of thing is tolerated?
