Diagram This!

I thought this was funny - but y'all know how different my sense of humor can be. This is also a challenge.

Read it through, then decide if, as indicated, I can be my own grandpa!

Two men met at a bus stop and struck up a conversation.

One of them kept complaining of family problems.

Finally, the other man said: “You think you have family problems? Listen to my situation:

“A few years ago I met a young widow with a grown-up daughter.
We got married and I got myself a stepdaughter.

Later, my father married my stepdaughter.
That made my stepdaughter, my step-mother.
And my father became my stepson.

Also, my wife became mother-in-law of her father-in-law.

Much later, the daughter of my wife, my stepmother, had a son.
This boy was my half-brother because he was my father’s son.
But he was also the son of my wife’s daughter which made him my wife’s grandson.

That made me the grandfather of my half-brother.

This was nothing until my wife and I had a son.

Now the half-sister of my son, my stepmother, is also the grandmother.

This makes my father, the brother-in-law of my child, whose stepsister is my father’s wife, I am my stepmother’s brother-in-law, my wife is her own child’s aunt, my son is my father’s nephew and I am my OWN GRANDFATHER!”

You might need a genealogy chart to be sure, but it is possible that I could be my own Grandfather.
