Oh, no!

The ancestry program I use has a "famous relatives" feature. I just found out I'm distantly related to George Bush. Disgusting! Ugh!

HAha! Nice!

My pedigree is full of Dutch peasants (literally...they were slaves in a castle). My dog has more famous dogs in her pedigree than I have people.

One good thing about being adopted is that you never have to face these types of disappointment...

Oh dear. That really sucks.

However, there is a bright side. Whenever you screw up you can just blame it on those defective Bush genes.

Wow, verte, we might be distant relations ourselves then, because my mother discovered several years ago that we are also distant relations of the Bushes (and three other presidents...old New England stock...).

We should start a Disgraced Descendants of Bush club, kind of like the DAR.

Ouch.

What program do you use, if you don't mind saying?

Oh and I can beat that...I did that thing where you upload a picture and they give you 8-10 famous people that you supposedly look like. Well, I got Bush

But I also got Nicolas Cage and Billy Corgan, so that was better.

I'm also related to William Henry Harrison. Isn't he the President you're descended from?
