Handsome young man.

    A good looking young man walked into a talent agent's office and stated, "I
    want to be a movie star."

    Tall, handsome and with experience on Broadway, he had all the right

    The agent asked, "What's your name?"

    The man declared, "My name is Penis Van Lesbian."

    The agent said "Sir, I hate to tell you this, but in order to get into
    Hollywood, you're gonna have to change your name."

    I will NOT change my name! The Van Lesbian name is centuries old, I
    will not disrespect my grandfather by changing my name. Not ever!"

    The agent said, "Sir, I have worked in this business for many years....you
    will NEVER go far in Hollywood with a name like Penis Van Lesbian!! I'm
    telling you, you'll HAVE TO change your name or I will not be able to
    represent you."

    the handsome young man said. "So be it!! I guess we will not be doing business together."
    ....and he left the agent's office.


    The agent opened an envelope sent to his office.
    Inside the envelope was a letter and a cheque for $50,000. The agent was
    awestruck...who would possibly send him $50,000?? He read the enclosed

    "Five years ago I came into your office wanting to become an actor in
    Hollywood. You told me I needed to change my name. Determined to make it
    with my Natural given birth name, I refused. You told me I would never make
    it in Hollywood with a name like Penis Van Lesbian. After I left your
    office, I thought about what you had said. I decided you were right, and had to change
    my name.

    I had too much pride to return to your office, so I signed with
    another agent. I would never have made it without changing my name so,
    the enclosed check is a token of my appreciation.

    Thank you for your valuable
