Polynesian, Schmolynesian

The following conversation took place during tonight's episode of Glee.

Fiance: ...the Polyponesian guy.
Me: mean Polynesian?
Fiance: Yeah, Polynesian.
Me: How on earth did you get Polyponesian?
Fiance: I don't know. Oh I must've gotten it mixed up with this book I saw. It was about the Polyponesian War.
Me: Uh huh.
Fiance: Now where was it...? (starts digging through the piles of books on the floor) I was just looking at it the other day. It was about Greek history.
Me: How on earth would you mix up the South Pacific and ancient Greece?
Fiance: Ah! Found it. (holds up the book in front of me)
Me: The Peloponnesian War???
Fiance: I knew I got it from somewhere.

Sorry, Kent Avenido. I don't know if you're actually Polynesian. I Googled you forever and could not find what your/your ancesters' nationality is. If you're reading this, send me an email. Howard Bamboo is awesome. Even though the name is moderately offensive.


  1. While Kent Avenido was raised in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, his family is from the Philippines.

  2. More often than not, if a person is Asian and has a Hispanic sounding last name, usually his ethnicity or ancestry is Filipino.

  3. Grew up with him in Elizabethtown and couldn't tell you where his family is from. I will tell you he was always ready with a smile and a really nice guy!
