Wasn't sure if I should post this here or in Random, but I think you folks would appriciate the bitter irony involved much moreso than the average Wiener.

So, I'm talking to my grandfather during Thanksgiving dinner, and discover a fairly-distant relation that makes my blood run cold. (No, not Glacier.). It seems, and I'm not sure if I've got all the facts right here, but my grandfather's aunt's nephew (on her other side) is former Pennsylvania governer and Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge.

I tried showering, but the dirt just won't come off.

That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger."

If it makes you feel any better, I also have a cousin who's a spooky reactionary xenophobe.

(long pause)

Okay, I didn't think that would help...

The kid my buddies used to beat up in elementary and middle schools became the lead singer for Tantric. Keep in mind my buddies are all dweebs who got shoved in quite a few lockers themselves.

But what do you expect from the town that gave the world Nuno Bettencourt?

My second cousin is hockey player Larry Murphy. Ironically, I'm the most policital of all my family on both sides. My dirt never comes off.

Some cousin/uncle/I have no idea of mine is a child psychologist/psychiatrist who's written some books and makes the Oprah-style talk show circuit every now and then. Not embarrassing, though. Could be worse... I could be related to Rob Nelson.

And as for birthdays, I share mine with Englebert Humperdink. Check and mate, cranlsn.

Gilbert Gottfried is the biggest star born on my birthday - how sad is that? (My sister shares hers with Vince McMahon, though.)

Well you guys can't imagine how proud my family is of my aunt, who is a soft core porn star for Cinemax and Playboy. Always a "treat" to come home from work at night, see whats on tv, and find your aunt having sex with some guy on a piano. And it doesn't help a lick that everyone on my mom's side (including myself) has the same face and ever present Jewish nose. We can't escape our roots!

Is being related to Eric the Red disturbing? My mother traced our family back to him. Also related to the King of Norway (distant cousin).

Doc Holladay.

'nuff said.

-Jag



With poison running through your veins, and death marching solemnly towards you, heroic acts become more of a necessity as you see your time dwindling.

Vanquishing your enemies, making amends to those you have wronged, and leaving words of love and kindness for those around you become second nature as your own mortality looms

However, true strength lies not in these last desperate acts, but in the actions of one who has to get out of bed the next day and face the consequences of doing that which you believe is right.

I'm third cousins with Haley Eisenberg. About the wierdest moment of my life was when I was at my grandma's house to "meet mishpocha (essentially Yiddish for "some weird extended family that the Nazis didn't kill") for dinner" also, and having the Pepsi girl walk in.

Billy the Kid shares my birthday. Yess Haw!

This should probably be moved to Random.

Know what's really distrubing? I'm part Plantagenant(sp?: Richard the Lionhearted, Edward I and III), part Windsor(current occupants of the throne, Churchill) and related to 14 U.S. presidents(including W).

Best part about it is that all but one of them was a Republican(unfortunately, that was FDR).

And finally, my first cousin six times removed was Galusha Grow, Republican Congressman from Pennsylvania and the first member of the GOP to serve as Speaker of the House(1861-1863).

Yeah, slowly turning random...

I believe I'm related to Farrah Fawcett(or atleast one of Charlie's Angels) somehow. Don't know the exactly lineage, though.

I believe I'm related to Dwight Yoakam, because he is the only "Yoakam" I've seen outside my immediate family that spells it that way and not "Yocum" or "Yokam"

I BELIEVE (although I can't totally confirm) that my red-headed cousin was the "Wendy's girl" in the really old 80s commercials for Wendys, before Dave Thomas.

My sister's friend's brother use to play bass for Jewel...

and I once tried dating a lady who was apparently Diamond Dallas Page's agent/manager. Can't confirm that either.

Now how pathetic is all THAT.
