Untitled[edit]

I have changed great-nephew to grandnephew, as that is the proper word for the son of one's nephew. In reverse, it is great uncle. If one goes up to an additional generation it becomes great-great uncle or great grand nephew. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Andymickey (talkcontribs) 22:34, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Divorced[edit]

So is he actually divorced? There's no citation and the infobox hasn't been updated, he doesn't wear a wedding ring in recent What the Flick episodes though. Also he just had a baby but that's only citable from passing comments in TYT clips. Pongley (talk) 01:21, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Spouse[edit]

When was his spouse born? I'm sure this is not correct "Lee Russo (b. 2013)"Jtyroler (talk) 05:26, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

any Polish or Polish-Jewish roots?[edit]

His last name "Mankiewicz" is typically Slavic of pure Polish origin. Isn't his ancestry Polish or Polish-Jewish? 78.8.60.51 (talk) 21:19, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

His grandfather, Herman J. Mankiewicz, was a NY born American of German ancestry. What difference does it make? --rogerd (talk) 22:36, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Mother Mormon?[edit]

[1]

I never knew this. It seems somewhat interesting (I had always assumed both his parents were Jewish), but is there any way to incorporate it into the article? The way he says it in the video, it's like he identifies as "coming from Mormons", for what that's worth.

His mother probably doesn't meet GNG, so we can't really put it anywhere else. (I actually suspect our article on his brother might not even meet GNG; half the text and all the sources are about his genealogy.)
