The term implies parentage, specifically an irregularity of same, and
also a regularity it can be set against.  (If everybody is a b*stard,
nobody is.)  So what do the Parent, the Official Co-Parent, and the
Actual Co-Parent have to say to each other about the situation?  For
that matter, how did they get into the situation to start with?

Stored bits remade from piles of scattered stuff --
Yet the taste of the first kiss remains so real.
