I'm including a couple of questions which were asked of me via msn (instant messaging) which were excellent but wrong :)

Is it anything to do with Millionaire? the coughing major? - no
Is he a spy? no

Does the medical condition he is assuming prevent one from coughing?

Is he pretending such to get out of work? Or is that his actual job? Is he a performer? An actor? A live mannequin? Is his function to entertain? To teach?

Was he auditioning for a role of a sick person? So that another actor with a "better sounding" cough might take the job instead of him?
