It's a song 

I doubted very much that it could be original, but it doesn't look as if it would fit a song ?  :o

Whatever it is / was, it had me chuckling. Thank goodness none of my lot have relationships that convoluted. Thanks Andrew, it brightened my day.

   Reminds me of the old Lance Percival song (probably frowned on now) which eventually ends up "your daddy ain't your daddy, but your daddy don't know."

Yes, that was one of his "Gossip Calypso"s, wasn't it? He used to do some on the old "Tonight" BBC TV programme, early evenings.

I'm sure this has been raised before. I remember the song from years ago but, if you Google images for "I'm My Own Grandpa", you'll get pages and pages of graphical explanations of how it works.

I have something a bit like this in my tree in the 1880's. Two sisters married a father and son and the younger couple went on to have children.
My grandmother told me that the older sister was known as Auntie Gran by the whole family!
