Quotes

Trevor Noah: You also have to learn the meanings of words that you already knew when you move to America. For instance, where I'm from there's a garment that men commonly wear under their shirts. It's white and it's sleeveless. Where I'm from, we refer to this as a "vest". Okay? I've now learned, in American, it is known as a "wife beater". -Yeah... I have so many questions.
