Family genetics sure are funny, aren’t they? Some people don’t look like their ancestors, some kind of do, and some are complete spitting images of their parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents.
A recent thread on Twitter saw a lot of people showing photos of themselves and other family members side-by-side and the likenesses are pretty undeniable.
These people are definitely chips off the old block!
This post got the ball rolling.
Grandma’s genes really hit copy n paste huh pic.twitter.com/oOtKHl8aSQ
