  2. Small Talk: We'll Be Right Back

    That's the real way to do genealogy. People think you can just go to some website, put in your name and you'll get your genealogy going back to Adam and Eve (and showing all the kings and queens and famous people who you are related to). In reality, as your family shows, things are more complicated than that.
  3. Small Talk: We'll Be Right Back

    Actually, doing genealogy is the real way to get all this information, but it's a lot of work and takes some know-how. The U.S. isn't the only country in the world with immigrants, so while your DNA says Spanish or Italian or Polish or German, your ancestors could culturally be French, having lived there for generations. DNA isn't necessarily going to tell you that. I knew someone named Martinez, who was French, despite the name (his family pronounced the name "Martin-ay".

I don't get how any of these people are so unaware of their ethnic background. How do they think they're German when they're actually Scottish? Maybe they should spend more time talking to their grandparents and other relatives rather than on DNA tests.

  8. In the 1960s Mrs. Butterworth was played by Cliff Arquette (AKA, Charlie Weaver), so she was transsexual.

  11. If you have a dirty mind, it's Pac-Man giving head.
  12. Along with Shelia's chi chi "she shed" by the seashore
