What do they say about Geneology on Twitter?

...
I have complete writer's block tonight, so went on Twitter and used some keywords to see what tweeters are saying about Genealogy and Ancestry.  Here are some of the best ones...

Tjpitre Genealogy- If you are of European descent you might find your ancestors were a bunch of bored, dirty, self-loathers with blockish physiques.

Jamesmoore80 I'm related to the first action hero/folk hero, Daniel Boone. Awesome! So glad my dad does genealogy!

Queenanthai Found an old sheet of paper with a lot of my genealogy scribbled onto it. As far as my grandpa can remember, anyway.

babyteejen @melvinwang Mah Mah and I tried to figure out your genius genealogy. She owes it to Uncle Leonard and the bank.

EstoppelFoxdale I've figured out I am of very Irish decent. Maybe Irish/Anglo. Being an American f.cks your genealogy all to hell though.

Inventrix Genealogy, whatever. *files that with dalmatian*

Inventrix Coworker talking about geneology: "I think we ALL can go back to Charlemagne!" Errr... no... pretty sure I couldn't... xD

LaBarraBNini The only ones I know with answers to my geneology are my aunt&Dad. And they're both working. #Frustration  

LaBarraBNini This talk of geneology made me realize that I don't know sh.t about either side of my family.

Have you ever done research typing the different forms of spelling of Genealogy into the system. It can be very enlightening about our peoples. I miss spelt the word about 8 years ago and was on line for five hours wandering through the stuff up on webs.

I don't see what's funny about the tweet from @fibiswebmaster, Randy. FIBIS is the Families in British India Society. They have a fantastic website, full of records, for anyone interested in genealogy research in India. There is a large Armenian community in India to this day: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenians_in_India.
