Overheard on the Net: Flashy Cars, Music and Homosexuality

  • The local Armenian moms of the neighborhood are all congratulating a member on her Range Rover purchase…lmao, because the Mercedes didn’t cut it.

One of these days, when I have some free time on my hands, I plan to conduct some kind of semi-scientific study on why Armenians are so attracted to ridiculously expensive (and ugly, I might add) cars. What is it about automobiles that just seem to rub Armenians the right way? Is it the way they prrr? The sound system’s ability to play Rabiz music and Armenian rap while gliding down a busy street and deafening everyone in sight? I just don’t understand it. All I ask from a car is that it can take me from place A to place B. Please tone it down a notch. Thanks.

  • He’s so hairy and Armenian..it really shows how strong the Kardashian genes are.

I usually like to keep these snippets of conversation anonymous, but it’s impossible to do it with this one, which was heard around the world and retweeted dozens of times. It belongs to self-anointed “Armenian Princess” Kim Kardashian and uttered during a broadcast of their wildly popular show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” when her sister Kourtney’s son was born. As much as I would like to disagree with her, I can’t. Armenians are hairy. Fact.

  • I just saw a gay Armenian guy! Never seen that in my life!

I have been patiently waiting to see a comment like this appear on the web. It perfectly illustrates all the hurdles Armenian culture still has to overcome to acknowledge, accept and respect homosexuality. It’s also appropriately timed with a four part series that will be appearing on this site very soon. There are gay Armenians every where, all you need to do is open your eyes and mind.

  • I woke up this morning to construction guys, power tools, jackhammers and Armenian music. I can handle all of it except the Armenian music.

Something tells me this commenter wouldn’t have enjoyed the Armenian Music Awards.
