Arian, Aryan
LOL. Actually it makes some sense as the Germans who overthrew Rome were Arians.

One of those ‘it’s funny ’cos he’s right and doesn’t even know it’ moments like a line on ‘Joey’ from the title character: ‘He’s like a Russian Joe Stalin!’

As Russian speakers can tell you, Iosif Dzugashvili, alias Josef Stalin, wasn’t Russian — he had a heavy Georgian accent all his life and his Russian sounded a bit stilted, natural from a foreigner.
