Dear Benefits Office Manager,

My name is Joe Bloggs and I live in Anytown, and I would like to
present before you the following story.

Many years ago, I married a widow out of love who had an 18-year-old

After the wedding, my father, a widower, came to visit a number of times,
and he fell in love with my step-daughter.

My father eventually married her. As a result, my step-daughter legally became my step-mother and my father my son-in-law.

My father's new wife (also my step-daughter) and my step-mother, gave birth to a
son who is my grandchild because I am the husband of my step-daughter's

This boy is also my brother, as the son of my father.

As you can see, my wife became a grandmother, because she is the mother
of my father's wife.

Therefore, it appears that I am also my wife's grandchild.

A short time after these events, my wife gave birth to a son, who became my
father's brother-in-law, the step-son of my father's wife, and my uncle.

My son is also my step-mother's brother, and through my step-mother, my wife
has become a grandmother and I have become my own grandfather.

In light of the above mentioned, I would like to know the following:

Does my son, who is also my uncle, my father's son-in-law, and my
step-mother's brother fulfil the requirements for receiving childcare

Sincerely yours,

:confused: :D

@Urmas - Tom Lehrer's songs always raise a laugh here. It is many years since I last heard this one. :lol:
