When I was a young man, my elders used to tell me that if I majored in Russian, I could write my own ticket in life. Sadly, I didn't follow their advice.

"I'm applying for a teaching position at the University of Arizona. Can you recommend a color for me?"
"How about blue? I bet they don't have any of those."
