I received the following e-mail from my friend Ani in Las Vegas:

So I went to the bookstore this morning and the nice lady, who took my transaction, noticed on my ID that my last name ends in YAN and the first thing she says to me was ” are you Armenian?” and before I have a chance to reply “yes I am, and you?” she says ” oh just like the Kardashians!!!!”
I told her that we don’t claim them. I was afraid that this day would eventually come; we as people are now recognized for a big ass and a sex tape. :-{
