As graduation season winds down, a reader sent us a text of an old Conan O'Brien's commencement speech delivered to graduates of Harvard, his alma mater. Here is the hilarious finale:
So, that's what I wish for all of you: the bad as well as the good. Fall down, make a mess, break something occasionally. And remember that the story is never over. If it's all right, I'd like to read a little something from just this year: "Somehow, Conan O'Brien has transformed himself into the brightest star in the Late Night firmament. His comedy is the gold standard and Conan himself is not only the quickest and most inventive wit of his generation, but quite possible the greatest host ever."
Ladies and Gentlemen, Class of 2000, I wrote that this morning, as proof that, when all else fails, there's always delusion. I'll go now, to make bigger mistakes and to embarrass this fine institution even more. But let me leave you with one last thought: If you can laugh at yourself loud and hard every time you fall, people will think you're drunk. Thank you.
Is this the funniest graduation speech of all time? One Web site thinks so, but we're not here to judge. We just want to know who gave the best commencement speach you've ever heard.
