Well, not really. But my wife is. Sort of. Let me explain.
I've written several times about getting my whole family on Geni.com and how I have discovered many distant lost cousins and branches of our family through this online family tree. As part of my blog subscriptions I also check out their RSS feed from time to time. Lately, it has been reduced to downtime announcements and even worse - the dreaded "profile of the day." So I usually skip those.
But today the profiles are of the infamous Kardashian sisters: Kim, Kourtney and Khloe. Sometimes when I see a name I recognize I'll click the link, go to the profile and then click the "How are you related" button. So I know I am not related to William Shakespeare, for example.
But I am related to the Kardashian sisters. Well, my wife is. Sort of. And if you can figure out what the connection is, well, good for you. This is how it says I am related to Kim Kardashian:
Kimberly Kardashian is your wife's fourth cousin once removed's ex-wife's second cousin once removed's ex-husband's brother's ex-wife's father's ex-wife's ex-husband's wife's daughter.
What was even funnier is that the profile says that it was added by Nicolas Cage. Could that be? Does Nick Cage actually have a Geni account where he adds famous people? I doubt it. But I clicked on it anyway and found out my wife is related to him as well:
Nicolas Cage is your wife's fourth cousin once removed's ex-wife's second cousin once removed's ex-husband's brother's ex-wife's ex-husband.
So, what famous people are you related to? Leave me your answers in the comment.
