King Of The Internet

Sam and I were talking yesterday, and we decided that the optimal BHS commencement speech would basically be JFK's Inagural Address, but slightly edited to fit the occasion.

So then we did that. Over on Superblog, one can discover the full text.

The only real obstacles are:
A: principal approval, and I have a feeling Heise will either skim for any "fucks" and then give it a check plus or be cool with the idea or maybe, just maybe, not recognize it and think that Logan/Kara/Whoever has gone off the deep end, but hey it's there speech.

B: Whoever is actually doing the speaking must also agree to do this instead of the same stuffy, long-winded, "hitch-your-wagon-to-the-stars" rigamarole that has dominated every speech in recent (read: my) memory (although if it actually contained the phrase "hitch your wagon to the stars," it might be okay.). And I imagine those people will be Logan and or Kara (Megan Augustinak will speak too, as our "class president," but I'd hate to interfere with the classic her speech is destined to become), and I further imagine that one or both of them is reading this right now. So: Hey Logan or Kara, do this speech, eh? Mustache faithful, feed them encouragement please.

Oh, and you can't laugh. And wild gestures are a plus, along with dramatic phrasing.

Man...this could be wicked sweet. This would basically be the equivalent of getting "Hit 'Em Up" as class song.

P.S.:Can you find the hidden links in the post above?

Know what this class needs?

A good, solid shot of nuclear paranoia.

It would be cool. At the same time, writing your own speech is rather pleasant.

I guess I never really intended to take it seriously, but when Raz called me and Cpn. McColgan into his office for a little chat, I guess I just decided it wouldn't be so bad to go with a traditional, stuffy, long-winded speech. Maybe change a few minds, though I doubt it.

It would be hilarious for anyone listening, assuming they could make any sense of it. Not that is doesn't make sense, of course. It's just kind of random.

was mine that bad? i know i didn't go through with your grand plan, max, of shouting 'hitch your wagon to the stars' at the end, but i kept it short at the very least.
