Funny Ass Shit: The family tree


Had dinner with some ladies recently when Cheree' regaled us with a recent online genealogy find. She and her husband's researching found a scanned census document from the 1930's. The document indicated name, age and occupation of the town's citizens.

Examples:

John Brown, 49, farmer

Richard White, 56, shop owner

HER relative?

Russell Black, 28, idiot


Cheree' said she and her husband laughed for hours and said it spoke volumes about the family history. I urged her to delve further into Russell Black's history because my bet is he sired lots and lots of children.

Maybe idiot in that time was like fat in other countries - meaning rich?

Word veri = misit
