Are you ready for your DNA test?
Knowing your DNA test results can be interesting. But you will probably go ROFL if the report is produced by US-based genetic testing service called 23andMe, which claims to help people trace their roots. And not-so-surprisingly, most netizens are game.
23andMe is sharing people's DNA results on social media in the form of a percentage breakdown. And this has (again, not-so-surprisingly) made the company a laughing stock.
The results show the user a range of information about their family tree, primarily the exact regions of the world their ancestors have come from. And in an attempt to be more specific, the tests show a percentage breakdown of their ethnicity. Sounds weird? Even we are busy putting two and two together.
Instead of fretting over it, most people on Twitter are having a good laugh.

Realising the buzz around the Internet's new-found craze, a user cheekily predicted that the website will soon snowball into a dating site.
