Facebook | Proud Uncle


This is my brother’s Facebook profile pic, it was taken the last time he came to visit me. My brother is, as might be said on this side of the pond, a bit of a Jack the Lad. Or at least that the image he likes to cultivate. But I guess he’s fairly proud of his nephew. Underneath the picture is the caption that says “Thanks Maury! Turns out this kid isn’t mine either.”

Maury is an American talk show which specialises in DNA paternity testing. I take no offense because I wrote that myself.

On my brother’s Facebook page – someone wrote on his wall.

I NEVER THOUGHT I’D SEE THE DAY YOU HAD A BOY…OR DID YOU FIND HIM ON THE STREET OR SOMETHING?

Every time I see that it makes me laugh.
