They aren't all intelligent, passionate, powerful, obnoxious, loud, ugly, or anything else simply because they are Armenian. They're human beings like you or me, there's good and bad ones just like in every ethnicity.
Idiot 2: NO! Armenians are loud, annoying, and smell bad!
Sane person: You're both dumbasses.
Sid Haig is Armenian, and a great actor. The two are not related.
- Hitler quote
Armenian women are renowned for their beauty; typically with large dark eyes, thick lashes and long healthy hair. A traditional female hairstyle is a very long braid to the side.
For such a small group of people, Armenians have contributed much to the world; they have many great doctors, actors, sport players (soccer and boxing being prominent),musicians (composers, instrumentalists, conductors, singers),writers, engineers, and, I think most of all, inventors.
Also take note, that a person's environment usually effects their behavior. Some people think that the diaspora Armenians in Glendale, California (and other populous regions) are giving a bad reputation to the rest of the Armenians. They are immigrants from Armenia, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, and Iran. They seem to be rowdy troublemakers with a lot of pride in who they are. This somewhat true. There’s the higher 2nd, 3rd generation end of the society, and the lower class of newer immigrants, who struggle in America and find that being poor in their native country is still much better than being poor in America. The parents of these families work all day, leaving their children unsupervised for hours; resulting in the formation of gangs and troublesome activity. It’s a hard life over there, and the Armenians in Glendale a perfect example of people being effected by their environment. Any ethnic group in a situation like that would have the same/similar problems.
And also, of course, you can not have the definition of an Armenian without mention of their rich culture; with its delicious food, deeply culturaly rooted music, unique language and alphabet, and dancing! agh aman their parties. I have always thought that the Armenian culture and food is similar to the Arabic, Greek and Russian cultures.
Armenian American writer William Saroyan
Goals in life are but not limited to having gold plated necklaces, sporty jumpsuits, and saying "arrah" every five minutes for no real reason.
99.999% of the time, their last name ends in "ian." The biggest accomplishment in the History of Armenia is Kim Kardashian.
Bob: No, we're in Glendale
Tim: That cologne store smells funny
Matt: That's because it's not a cologne store, it's just an Armenian in a phone booth
