So, Duh! Pop Quiz… TV Siblings (And More) Edition

Sure... it's not soda pop... but they're not siblings, either.

For each of the following picture sets, designate whether each person is the main person’s:

  • Real-life sibling (sibling)
  • TV show sibling (“sibling”)
  • Real-life child (offspring)
  • TV show child (“offspring”)
  • No relation whatsoever (nothing)

This was going to originally focus on TV siblings that look nothing alike.  It still does, but in a more distilled, effervescent way…
