Everyday thoughts, although not every day

Keeping it in the family

Certain enclaves within Switzerland have traditionally kept it in the family, so to speak. Historically, this was because communities were isolated, by difficult terrain for example. But even our village, which isn't hard to get to, has several headstones in its graveyard dedicated to an entombed Kistler-Kistler. Kistler is the predominant family in the village; there's a lot of them.

I've heard that close familial relationships are quite commonplace in the canton of Appenzell Innerrhoden, with its villages of kissing cousins. I call it Appenzell Innenbred. Whenever I see a car with an AI registration plate heading east, I think He's driving home to sis.

All of which came to mind when I read this joking comment from an Alabaman on YouTube:

In other news:

Ghost, comment on It’s your fault! Batwoman season 3 fans already blaming men for low ratings!, YellowFlash 2

(LMAO)


I have no idea whether Ghost is an Alabaman. I made that up. He may be from Louisiana for all I know.
