Have you ever heard a graduation speech that was good? What did they talk about. 

I can't remember a single one.

 

Poor audio quality didn't help either.

Yes. Baz Luhrmann's song "Everybody's Free". According to Wikipedia, it never was an actual speech, but a column written in a newspaper.

I remember being bored by my HS graduation speech and joking with my buddies through it, so I'm inclined to say no, it wasn't good. 

 

I remember the guest speaker at my college graduation was Kathy Ireland. I do not remember what she spoke about,  so no, probably also not good.

 

To be fair though, I'm not generally impressed by speeches.

It was genetically created by accident by a conglomerate of car washes (i.e. Big Carwa) trying to increase revenue.

Where is @kristof65 when we need him!?

Hey, I work for the US branch of Big Carwa. That was the Canadian branch. The US plan is much more insidious nicer, I promise. :poke:

Actually yes. I had Bill Clinton speak at my college graduation many moons ago. He spoke about being open-minded, how just because you may not agree with someone doesn't mean that you have to dislike them. Fairly relevant words, considering the world today.

 

It was way better than my brother's, who had a former surgeon general speak about the importance of oral hygiene (had been a dentist).

Not really, they spout things that are eminently forgettable. I think the grads were more concerned with getting the the wet grad party afterwards.

 

If I did remember the after party was sure to make me forget...

We had Robert Redford, but I can't remember a word, not sure I was able to hear any of it with the huge crowd of public gawkers that showed up.

Honestly don't even know if I paid attention to mine... That my parents made me go to.  Sitting around is boring, annoying, and ever so frustrating when you're a massive ball of hyperness...

You need to get a crew together for a heist. Who are you bringing? …and what is the score?

Kal-El’s various ne’er-do-well alter-egos. And the Flash, the Flash would probably be useful. 

Can’t say.
That would be telling.

And it’d break a forum rule.
