German blood? Well I never

Researchers have apparently 'discovered' that a lot of British people are genetically very similar to those in Denmark and North Germany. No shit.

I always wondered why people talked about 'Anglo-Saxon' this and that, what with Saxony being in Germany. The mystery is now solved. Maybe these researchers could now turn to something else that's been bothering me: the strange correlation between Popes and Catholicism.

Wondered where I got the Anglo-Saxon blood from.

And the Angles must have come from somewhere as well. My money's on The Isle of Anglesey.

Mark, hand over that money!

"The Angles is a modern English term for a Germanic people who took their name from the ancestral cultural region of Angeln, a district located in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany"
