Topic: Are you related to anyone famous?

As the thread title says, are you related to anyone famous? Yesterday I found out that I'm related to DJ Pauly D from that tv show Jersey Shore. You know the show with the Italians who get drunk and swear a lot? Apparently he's my Dad's 3rd cousin so that makes him a distant cousin of mine. I am both excited and ashamed but I wanna meet him one day.

Not that I'm aware of, though my old boss is a descendant of the Russian spy Richard Sorge.  Interesting fact- my boss found his grandfather's grave while attending my wedding!

Paulie D is actually the one person on the show who is legit.  He is a talented DJ and isn't a complete moron like the rest of them.  He will be the only person on the show who actually uses his talents to make something of himself after the show is over.
