Jimmy Fallon's commencement speech

Fallon graduatesJimmy Fallon did finally graduate from St. Rose this past weekend. During his commencement speech, he talked about how hard it was to get the college to give him his degree (he was 15 credits short after dropping out):

I'm on national TV, can I have a degree now?

'No, you keep laughing at all the jokes.'

And then I made a bunch of movies... they actually took credits away from me.

The video of Fallon's speech is embedded after the jump. It was pretty funny.

I too have a degree in communications from a local college, and look where it got me. I'm a medical transcriber at a hospital making ten dollars an hour. I guess all I'm saying is that I don't know how much of a difference this will make on his resume.

Um, yeah, I wouldn't think anyone who spends his or her day constantly posting on twitter and commenting on blogs should get paid much more than $10/hour.

Lesson to today's youth: a degree in communications leads to a life of witty commentating on local blogs. Up to you to decide if this is a good or bad thing. At least it's better than that degree in information systems management that leads to a life of selling ink cartridges at Staples.

I don't know if I have forgiven Jimmy Fallon for being so awful at the Spitzer inaugural night concert. He was so un-funny they stopped having him come out between acts!

Awe shucks Blehber, you really hurt my feelings. Because, you know, I'm really proud of where my life is right now.

Here's Dr Fallon's HS yearbook pic:


The dude would totally need a fake ID to drink in Albany. Oh wait, its Albany.
