Nguyen-sanity

Alexandra Nguyen, Angela Nguyen, Angelica Nguyen, Elizabeth Nguyen, Emily Nguyen, Isabella Nguyen, Madeline Nguyen, and Vi Nguyen all attend Presentation High, a Catholic girls school in San Jose, California. They shared a single quote in their high school yearbook, which we posted last week. The photo of the yearbook page has brought the octet global recognition. And yes, Angela and Madeline are twins.
A photo of the page registered more than 1.1 million views on image-sharing site Imgur. A blog item on the Huffington Post wondered if it might be the best yearbook quote ever. The United Kingdom's Daily Mail posted an item about the stunt. And a camera crew from "Inside Edition" came to the school Friday to interview them. (Full disclosure: I first heard about it from my wife, who works at the school.)

Isabella Nguyen said they first thought about using a famous quote but decided to make light of the fact that people have often asked the girls -- who have shared classes for four years -- if they're related. "People always ask if we're cousins or something," she said.

Nguyen is a common surname in Vietnam and is pretty common in the Bay Area, which has a large Vietnamese population.

The yearbook quote was Isabella Nguyen's idea. Link -via Gawker
