My very crude attempt at genetics

This is a follow-up post to Quadruple first cousins?  Here is what I came up with (please pardon the grade school level graphics)


A bit creepy that the mother, father and child all have the same basic genetic make up.  Of course children get 50% of their DNA from their mother and 50% from their father but the 50% one child gets isn’t the exact same 50% that another child gets or all three of these people would be clones.  It is still a little too related for me!

  1. So are they triplets? or is the child a twin with the same sex parent? Ewww.

  2. The double first cousins (who have the same basic genetic makeup) married and had a child which also matches their basic genetic makeup. It is a mess!
