    A good-looking man walked into an agent's office in Hollywood and said,
    "I want to be a movie star." Tall, handsome and with experience on
    Broadway, 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 Hollywood with 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 guy said and he
    left the agent's office.

    FIVE YEARS LATER..... The agent opens an envelope sent to his office.
    Inside the envelope are a letter and a check for $50,000. The agent is
    awe-struck, who would possibly send him $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.

    Sincerely, Dick van Dyke

    There's a nice article in Snopes write-up about this TOTAL HOAX.
  6. Yup, but it's still a good joke, Marlin. :D ;)

    I don't think it was ever meant to be taken seriously. ;)
