Chris has stated:

I make fun of myself, I make fun of my mom, my dad. I try to self-deprecate myself because that’s always been my sense of humor. I’m Italian-Irish Catholic from New York City, that’s all we do, beat the shit out of ourselves and guilt trip ourselves. That’s the family background I come from.

    He was recently on a podcast where he stated that he did an ancestry test and the result was like 93% or more “German”. I personally don’t find these tests realiable whatsoever and I think they can occasionally be totally out of line or often be pretty inaccurate, plus celebs make all sorts about things that are not easy to verify, but I thought maybe it would be worth mentioning.

    This is the podcast:

    They talk about it around 6:30

      all sorts of claims*

      You are greatly exaggerating their unreliability. More likely, he was probably just bullsh%tting the host.

        Hence the expression “I PERSONALLY do not find them reliable” which means it is in fact my own personal judgement on the matter and it has to do with how I feel about it. I could explain the reasons and present objective data to support this view and I’m sure you could do the same more or less in the opposite rethorical direction, but we would most certainly end up not persuading each other to change our minds, so let us spare ourselves some time and let us accept this fact and go on with our lives. ;)
