This is a question Black Sheep

Every family has their black sheep, deserved or not. We're still not talking to an uncle who "borrowed" the capital from the family firm, causing it to collapse and leaving my dad out of work for 4 years in his mid 40s. Who aren't you talking to?

There's just so many
My family specializes in black sheep, but I think the funniest one was my cousin's wife. My cousin liked to drink and when he drank he punched walls (not people, I don't think) and his wife liked to drink, too. However, a judge decided this was bad for the kid she had brought to the marriage and so ordered her money supply cut off so that she couldn't buy booze.

So she knocked over a corner store. She got caught. Then she skipped bail. Not seen ever since.

My cousin adopted the kid, got religion, stopped drinking, and got remarried, so I guess all's well that ends more or less well.

Hmm. On my husband's side, well, his brother dumped his girlfriend of several years in order to take up with a lap-dancer who assured him that she wouldn't get pregnant, though neither of them was using contraceptives. She did get pregnant. I think now he sees the kid but not her. I'm not sure which of that pair would be the more profoundly black sheep, but my husband only occasionally hears about his brother through his parents, so his brother certainly qualifies.
