Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s latest "Lie Witness News" has innocent pedestrians reacting to the name of Kimye's second child. These names, in typical "Lie Witness News" fashion, were not real. What was real, however, is that if any of the ridiculous names were true, no one would be surprised.

Twenty-fifteen has been a huge year for the Kardashian-Jenners: Khloe and Lamar's pending divorce resurfaced with a near-death overdose; Kourtney and Scott were on-again-off-again until they were…off again, and now on (again); Caitlyn told the world "hello, it's me"; Kris had a pregnancy scare; Kendall walked among Angels; and Kylie turned 18. At the center of it all, Kim K-W added a future media-mogul to the blended, extended family. Mr. and Mrs. Yeezus welcomed Saint West on December 5th, and the Internet may not have been surprised by the news, but certainly had fun with the name.

Earlier this year, E! drew up a contract with matriarch Kris Jenner for four more years of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and its spin-offs. At a modest $100 million, the Kardashians became the highest paid reality TV stars to date.

The Kardashian family first came into the public eye in 1994 when Robert Kardashian defended O.J. Simpson in the trial of the century. The media shone a harsh spotlight on the entire Kardashian family, even though Kris had divorced Rob in 1991, and had since become the wife of Olympian Bruce Jenner.

But 2007 was the year that put the family on the map (and all our screens). At the same time Kim's infamous sex tape was leaked, Paris Hilton's "The Simple Life" was coming to an end, and E! had an open time slot. The rest is record-breaking reality TV history.

The Kardashian-Jenners' plan for world domination may soon come to pass. Saint, save us all.
