    Since that was a joke, it really doesn't matter. The film's creators pretty obviously intended to portray him as a backwoods inbred idiot savant, so the character was inbred.

    If I made a joke about the monster in Universal's 1931 film, Frankenstein, would you respond by pointing out that Boris Karloff (William Henry Pratt) wasn't actually created in a lab by a mad scientist?
