Stephen Colbert’s Knox College 2006 commencement speech

There’s nothing like Stephen Colbert from Comedy Central. An excerpt from the 2006 commencement speech at Knox College, and you’ll agree that this man is true to his ways. Everything with a dash of humor. Nothing is like graduating from college when everything is over and there are smiles, laughter, and outrageous humor everywhere. Surely it’s a bright time, right before you have to wake up to reality.

So we must build walls. A wall obviously across the entire southern border. That’s the answer. That may not be enough–maybe a moat in front of it, or a fire-pit. Maybe a flaming moat, filled with fire-proof crocodiles. And we should probably wall off the northern border as well. Keep those Canadians with their socialized medicine and their skunky beer out. And because immigrants can swim, we’ll probably want to wall off the coasts as well. And while we’re at it, we need to put up a dome, in case they have catapults. And we’ll punch some holes in it so we can breathe. Breathe free. It’s time for illegal immigrants to go–right after they finish building those walls. Yes, yes, I agree with me.

You can do it. Laugh with me.
Here’s a mirror of the speech.
