A 21 year old woman got the shock of her life when she discovered that the receptionist at a fertility clinic, where her parents underwent artificial insemination, was her real father. Seems the convicted kidnapper who had been working at the clinic had deliberately switched sperm with her intended “father”. It is feared that the man may have switched samples with several other male patients and could have fathered numerous children without couples knowing. Unfortunately, the man in question is no longer alive but his mother agreed to a DNA swab which confirmed the girl and parent’s worst fear. The clinic, which was associated with the University of Utah,is no longer operating and there are no remaining records but the Uni is offering genetic testing for anyone who used the clinic from 1988 through 1994.

Hold onto your hats British historians, we have a new theory on why Elizabeth I never married. It seems she was a he . Yep , a case of … OMG the Princess (Anne Boleyn’s kid) has died of a friggin fever and Henry VIII (the king who beheads on a whim) is on his way for a visit, quick find someone to stand in for her. That was the dilemma facing Elizabeth’s governess, Lady Kat Ashley, and her guardian, Thomas Parry. Poor bastards. In a desperate attempt to save their heads they came up with a plan, find a stand in. Unfortunately they couldn’t find a girl matching Elizabeth’s description or age … but there was Neville, a gawky, angular kid who could pass as a girl. So rather than face the wrath and erratic behaviour of Henry VIII they put the boy in the dead princess’s clothes and prayed the fat old man wouldn’t notice. The plan worked and Neville spent the rest of his life as a Queen. To avoid the whole marriage and heir issue, Elizabeth spent her life starting wars and proclaiming she was married to her country. She disguised her masculine features with heavy make-up, wigs and high neck collars. The Virgin Queen is buried in Westminster Abbey and a simple little test could determine the truth about Elizabeth I .
