Web Wednesday: Conan the Commencementor...

The arrival of the ice cream truck has given me inspiration for a Web Wednesday post! Today's entry comes to us from the past. In the year 2000 to be exact... Do you like Conan O'Brien? Of course you do. If you didn't you'd be mentally weak. Back in 2000, he returned to his alma mater to give the commencement address. I put a short clip below, but click here to read the whole thing...

When I was here, they sold diapers at the Coop that said "Harvard Class of 2000." At the time, it was kind of a joke, but now I realize you wore those diapers. How embarrassing for you. A lot has happened in fifteen years. When you think about it, we come from completely different worlds. When I graduated, we watched movies starring Tom Cruise and listened to music by Madonna. I come from a time when we huddled around our TV sets and watched "The Cosby Show" on NBC, never imagining that there would one day be a show called "Cosby" on CBS. In 1985 we drove cars with driver's side airbags, but if you told us that one day there'd be passenger side airbags, we'd have burned you for witchcraft.

That's great. Very funny. My commencement speaker sucked.
