Great-grandfather of dolls

Here's an Aviva story copied from the Rumor Mill.

Not only am I a grandfather to Aviva's doll children. It turns out I'm a great-grandfather, if you count the Little Giraffe, who is Andrew's child.

Originally Aviva maintained that the Giraffe was Andrew's child by parthenogenesis, and that Andrew was the "daddymommy". Tonight, however, she explained to us and our dinner guests that Andrew is the daddy and Annabelle, Andrew's sister, is the mommy.

"Honey," I said, "You can't do that -- I mean, you can't have a Daddy and Mommy who are brother and sister -- it's not allowed. I mean," I equivocated in the face of Aviva's cool regard, "maybe in Oberwil, but..."

Aviva said knowingly, "Daddy, in Oberwil..." -- she shrugged -- " ...it happens."

Which cracked the dinner table up.
