[Disclaimer: This post was part of our Joke Day series. Didn't the font tip you off?] Before he was appearing on the big screen as Agent 007, Britain's most notorious spy, the only identifying three digits in Daniel Craig's life were preceded by a SAS subject code.

The C'90 graduate, born and raised in Engelwood, NJ, remained Undecided through his junior year at Penn, debating his exact interests and often settling on Econ because "it seemed like just the thing to do if you were a confused College kid." Inevitably, all the exposure to international students soon took a toll on Craig's accent.

Craig did eventually graduate, albeit with a certificate that had his two names printed backwards (honest mistake), and realizing that his true passion was not Econ but rather "rocking the hell out of a tux," he became the head waiter at an upscale restaurant in Center City where he was luckily discovered by a Hollywood talent scout.
