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.

I was feelin' pretty down 'til my girlfriend came around
We're just so alike in every way
I gotta say
In fact I just thought I might pop the question there that night
I was kissing her so tenderly
But woe is me
Who would have 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!
Tell me:
How was I supposed to know we were both related?
Believe me, if I knew she was my cousin we never would have 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?
No, no, no.
"Weird Al" Yankovic, "A Complicated Song" (parody of "Complicated" by Avril Lavigne)

Diddy Kong: That's even better!

Kara Zor-El said, "Would you believe that Kal once told me that one of the first girls he ever fell for in his life was named Supergirl?"
The others at the dinner party reacted with shock, laughter, surprise, disbelief, curiosity, amusement, or a combination of the above.
"How's this, Kara?" asked Van-Zee, cautiously. "You don't mean he fell for you, do you?"
She smiled an I-know-something-you-don't smile at him.
