One older comedian asked a young comic, “Are you married?” The younger comic replied “no!” Astonished, the older comedian said, “then what do you for aggravation!”

It is also for those who have just graduated from university, but don’t want to pursue a career related to their qualification, and who want to explore their interests instead.

My ambitions go beyond race; mine or anyone else’s.
