PRAGUE (Reuters) - A Czech couple who decided to take a DNA test to squash persistent pub gossip and prove that their 10-month-old baby was their own got a nasty surprise.
The couple, from the southeastern town of Trebic, had some doubts about the child as her hair was blonde and they both had dark hair. Fellow drinkers' suspicions got on their nerves.
Do babies really get swapped at birth? In the 21st century? In Europe? This is amazing. The man may have been a bit bristly at the peanut gallery’s commentary, but his wife couldn’t have suspected anything. When was the last time that an episode of Springer proved that the baby wasn’t hers? Also, it seems to us that some of these Czechs aren’t too familiar with genetics. We’re pretty sure that a pair of brunettes can have a blonde (or ginge) baby. It’s not always the mailman (or Zeus).
