|Mar-18-13|| ||wordfunph: Dirk Jan ten Geuzendam found an amusing anecdote that IM Ashot Nadanian posted in a blog:|
"In 1998 I was playing in the Linares Open tournament. One day I bought some food and among other things there was some canned fish. In the evening, a very young Levon Aronian entered my room. He picked up the tin, and seeing the logo of the manufacturer - a tiny kitten - he asserted - with healthy laughter - that it was food for cats. Although he knew that it was not so, Levon nevertheless made fun of me during the whole tournament. 'Well, have you eaten Whiskas today?' Or: 'The store still has food for cats?' His laughter was contagious and made me laugh along. Six years later my daughter was born. One day I met Levon. 'Congratulations, Ashot! How did you name your little girl?' 'Her name is Kiti.' 'See? I told you it was Whiskas!'"
