That One's Mine Too. Trust Me.

Was the anonymous Parisian who claimed 55 boys and girls were his along with 55 different mothers, father to so many to assure himself mail on Father's Day?

Perhaps, although French authorities are taking a rather dim view of his paternity.They believe it was all a fraud, costing the state more than $1.25 million a year in benefits to African immigrants. Authorities point to clues like only 42 of the mums have been identified; and that 50 of the kids are registered as living with dad in his two bedroom flat — with none in attendance on a recent visit.

It is hard to believe in the French as being anti-romantic, but it seems pretty likely at this point that the gent's love for his kids will be tested by DNA testing.
