Personal Quote:

[on weddings] I think weddings are very unpleasant for single men. I think that most guys don't want to get married. It's not something men aspire too. You have a dialogue with yourself. You're not married. You ought to get married. Do you want to get married? You will get married. Now you can enjoy the buffet. You can drink the wine. See more »
