Things That Exist, Vol. 6: Mobile DNA Testing Trucks

I feel like I'm on my computer constantly, poring through hundreds of feeds and stories daily, spanning the globe to bring you the constant variety of legal blogs and information you deserve. But I definitely miss a lot of things that everyone else seems to know about -- the type of things where I can only scratch my head and say, "Really?!? They have that? Never heard of it." 

Today's thing I never knew existed: DNA Testing Trucks

That's right -- an actual "Who's Your Daddy"-mobile exists (via Appellate Squawk) that will come to your house, take your DNA, test it, and then email you the results of who is your daddy, child, grandchild, sibling, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, whatever! You can get a "Legal DNA Paternity" test that will supposedly hold up in court, or you can go for the less expensive "Peace of Mind" home kit that is said to be the same test as the "legal" version but not usable in court.

The DNA truck is a service offered by Health Street, which claims to have over 1,000 locations throughout the U.S. for drug testing, DNA testing and other services. Health Street seems to be getting a good bit of mileage out of its Who's Your Daddy truck, featuring it on its Facebook page and also tweeting about it regularly on its Twitter feed.

As Health Street shared here on its Facebook page, "Who needs Maury???"
