Exactly. And the recent one was taken by a monkey. I don’t know which is worse.

And the revelation is?
I’m going to build on my previous success and say that the baby will definitely not be called Latifah.
You pre-empted Prince Harry's move by marrying a mixed-race woman.

That the house of Windsor now contains someone who knows what it is like to have a job?

It’s hard work being an actor. I’m sure she’d rather have served in Afghanistan.

It is hard work, but the fatality rate is lower. Tradeoff.

(Though I don't think Harry was every let loose there, they must have kept him out of harm's way most of the time.)

I once signed up with an actor agency - I hoped to take part in my favourite movie or series productions as an extra (I would make a really good Tolkien orc with minimum characterisation). All invitations to rehearsals I received involved roles varying only in the extent of body nudity - from upper parts to full. When one of them sounded as if it was tailored to my profile (physical characteristics and ethnic background) and the role was a rape scene, I signed out.

All the world's a stage. Everyone is posing.

And what about your professor, did he sign up? He liked full frontal as far as I remember.

The scum is dead. My point is that being an aspiring actress is not very safe. In Warsaw, I was also signed up with hostess/actor agencies. I was once offered a jelly wrestling gig :-) For some time I worked as a barmaid in a bar at the suburbs, which I later realised was run by a mafia and there was clearly a brothel at the backstage (likely human trafficking too). I was misled about them by the fact that they treated me and other barmaids in a more civilised way than more "reputable" places I worked at. Obviously, I was giving private lessons in physics and maths in the afternoons, in case you wondered, but that wasn't enough to make ends meet.

He's taken the rape scene? Sometimes art is too realistic.

Stroke. I hope it hurt. Anyway, if I have children, I hope it won't be a daughter. And if you think you can protect your daughters from that - good luck.

I've never wrestled a jelly. Is it like glima?

I wrestled a 160 kg judoka last week. His judo belt is 4 metres long.
