Whats in a name


Book Reviewer
Best (clean) joke so far this year .....

A good looking man walked into an agent's office in Hollywood and said "I want to be a movie star." He had the right credentials

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

The guy said, "My name is Penis van Lesbian."

The agent said, "Sir, I hate to tell you, but in order to get into Hollywood , you are going to 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 Hollywood for years... you
will NEVER go far in Hollywoodwith a name like Penis van Lesbian!
I'm telling you, you will HAVE TO change your name or I will not be able to
represent you."

"So be it! I guess we will not do business together" the said guy and he left the agent's office.

FIVE YEARS LATER..... The agent opens an envelope sent to his office. Inside the envelope is a letter and a cheque for $50,000.

He reads the letter enclosed...

"Dear Sir, 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 God-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 said. I decided you were right. I 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 advice..
