It's In The Genes!

Probably not very good science, but the child is certainly being introduced to the Battle of the Sexes at an early stage!


Anthony was puzzled; he stood and scratched his head.
'Who was it made us, Mummy?' the little boy then said.
'Well, we're descended from monkeys' his mother said, and smiled;
'Our ancestors lived up in the trees; they were animals, and wild.'
Just to make sure, the little boy then asked his Dad the same.
'Daddy can you tell me how human beings came?'
'We were made by God' said Daddy.' He made us in one day;
We're noble, brave and perfect; God fashioned us that way.'
Anthony frowned a little; he wasn't satisfied.
'You and Mummy tell different stories'. (That couldn't be denied!)
'You say that God has made us; she says we're from the trees.
Surely one of you is wrong! Daddy! Explain it please!'
'Ah, that is very easy' said Daddy, 'We combine.
She's talking about her family;
I'm talking about mine!'

That wretched DNA also here:
