    At my high school.. all the seniors have the opportunity to create a graduation speech and say it in front of everyone at graduation.. which is obvious.. thing is.. we are only having one speaker.. and its like a contest.. contestants have to type out their speech and say it in front of some teachers on some random lunch day.. then whoever the teachers feel did the best job will get to speak infront of the 500 plus seniors and their parents! so... can you guys help a fellow mac head out? what do you guys from remember from your high school graduations? any good ideas? i wanna win this thing! :)

    Don't all graduation/commencement sound pretty much the same? I graduate college in 20 days, and I'm dreading two things: 1) having both sides of a divorced family in close proximity for more than 7 seconds, and 2) the two hours I'm going to have to sit in the sun, in May, in the South, wearing black, listening to boring speeches about the future. The only part I give a rat's patoot about is the ten or so seconds when I get to walk up on stage and get my degree. I certainly paid enough for it.

    Just come up with something that on the surface sounds like every other graduation speech out there, then to be clever change a few words to something unexpected or add some interesting descriptive words. Something akin to a girl I know who used to work as a cashier at Wal-Mart; every once in a while she'd tell the customer "F*** you and have a ncie day." No one noticed.

    I thought the valedictorian and salutatorian gave the speeches?

    Best... Commencement Adress... Ever

    The first half is pretty light hearted and funny, but towards the end he really is quite inspirational.

    Two of my favorite lines:
