I picked this up at a bookstore. My cousin was going to be graduating, but I wanted to read it before I gave it to her. It has all these really great lines from commencement speeches. A lot of them are funny (Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Conan O'Brien, Kermit the Frog) and it's weird because they're not all by people you'd think were funny, like Kofi Annan and Colin Powell. My favorite advice in the book is from Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips, "Avoid jellyfish." I ended up keeping my copy and getting another one for my cousin.
Hey Dude, this is the book we should have been asked to compare and contrast Jun 1, 2007
I just got this as a graduation gift and it is so wack. Really funny excerpts from graduation speeches with hilarious illustrations. I plan to put a few on my bathroom wall...if I ever get my own bathroom.
