Me with two friends. The running joke is that we all alike enough to be siblings and this was the first time we were all in the same room with a camera. Is it true? Is the Celtic gene pool truly that shallow?
The oldest sibling is in the center.

I ....actually don't know how old he is. I think he's roughly my age? Bit older?

The glasses and scruff go a long way in establishing a resemblance.

Ah, you Celts and your rectangular eyes!

Maybe it's the eye-wear gene pool that's shallow. You're such a cutie. *tickles*

What's the name of the handsome guy on the right?

Actually, I'm seeing quite a bit of resemblance between you three. All very handsome, of course. Gotta love that Celtic gene pool.

I'm on the right, no body else has that many pink flannel ties.

Ok, that's a nice shot. Poor middle guy though, with the spillage on his shirt.

He was making everyone absinthe cocktails, there's bound to be risks.

When my hair is messy I look like I have messy hair. When The Whelk has messy hair he looks... charmingly disheveled.

Yay Celts! *gets out the woad*

Yes. I can see it clearly.

People I don't even know guess my ancestry. I had one woman say 'the map of Ireland is written on your face.'

So, the Celtic gene pool is, well, let's say consistent.

You guys have the same coloring. Add to that the facial hair, glasses, and dark clothing, and you look sort of similar. But you have differences in your facial structures. You don't all look identical but you do look like you could be in the same extended family.

The whole thing was super funny to me cause one time it came down to "Okay were did your grandparent's parents come from" and we all hit Scottish/Irish towns. Plus, the running joke that we're all attracted to each other out of sheer narcissism cause we all look alike.

Plus! My own actual brother? He's 6'4, dark complexion, olive skinned and skinny as a pole. My Mom is the only fair-haired blue-eyed stocky pale-freckled person in eight other swarthy and curly siblings. Genetics Is Strange.

Which is also amusing as my Husband looks nothing like me, and the "gay couples always look alike blah blah John and John effect" THING which is super funny.

For comparison - The Nieces and Nephews and Grandchildren Of Our Family.
washes out of a bit the complexion difference but it's all "wow I am the palest motherfucker in the room"

Also "wow I come from a big family"
posted by The Whelk 17 September | 23:37
That is an interestingly diverse family!
