Quote of the Day (Patricia Marx, on Confusing Cousin Relationships)

“Your first cousin's grandchild is your first cousin, twice removed. Your parent's first cousin's grandchild is your second cousin, once removed. You are not responsible for any relative more distantly related than that.”— American humorist and writer Patricia Marx, “A Spy Guide to Things That Are Confusing,” Spy Magazine, October 1986, retitled as “Things That Are Confusing” and reprinted in Mirth of a Nation: The Best Contemporary Humor, edited by Michael J. Rosen (2000)
