Of all the things you don't want to say publicly on social media ... Justine Sacco wins. But talking about how you to get it in with your "hot" cousin is up there.
On Christmas night, Twitter user Mobute, a contributor for Deadspin, Esquire and other sites, discovered that these thoughts were a recurring theme.
He started re-tweeting them all, and the results are ... interesting.
Around the holidays, we often see relatives who aren't in our immediate families, and it's understandable to observe that one's cousins are attractive humans.
This goes beyond that, though. The words "crush," "date" and "f--k" were frequently used. There was a lot of family holiday party sexual tension apparently.
Unless your cousin looks like Kate Upton, there's no need for ... you know what, it would still be weird to be related to her and think about sleeping with her.
Right? Not to these people around the country, evidently.
