Darn Suspicious!

My father was from Kentucky, so when I first heard that my nephew, Conner, was marrying another Burns, I was a bit concerned. 

Seriously? Three generations of idiots isn't enough?

But as Conner's fiancé's mother, Carolyn, notes, research shows no relation... though Carolyn Burns also happens to be my wife's name, which is darn suspicious.

All kidding aside, Burns is a pretty common last name. In the 1990 U.S. Census, there were more than 160,000 of us.

The top last names in the U.S.? Smith (over 2.5 million), Johnson, Williams, Jones, Brown, Davis, Miller, Wilson, Moore, and Taylor.
