DNA Truck Tests Potential Parents On The Spot
It used to be that the only thing you could get from a truck cruising the neighborhood was ice cream.
Nowadays, you can get everything from 3-course meals, to animal care, to health insurance……and now, you can also find out if the kid is not your son.
“Who’s Your Daddy” is the name of a quick DNA test that allows those with concerns to walk up to a truck to find out if their children are actually biologically theirs. “They flag us down, they pull us over, they talk to us,” owner and operator Jared Rosenthal said Wednesday. “Sometimes, because of the nature of the services, they want to be a little more discreet about it, but they do come or they’ll call the number.”
When asked by CBS 2’s Dave Carlin why he was taking the DNA test from the traveling truck, one unidentified man explained, “I’m paying child support anyways and I would do it anyways. You just want to know.” Rosenthal maintained that his credentials are legitimate and that his business is legal. And, as you might imagine, wherever Rosenthal’s truck goes it attracts attention.
Reactions namely range from people saying, “How could he?” to others saying, “Why didn’t I think of that?”
We wonder how many deadbeats in denial will get down with the DNA truck…
