Totally Frenched Out

From the blogger formerly known as Samdebretagne

I was thinking about writing a post about David Lebovitz's book reading tonight, or maybe one about how touching and poignant I thought the 25year Cosby Show reunion on the Today Show was, but instead I got side-tracked by a link Crystal posted on Facebook. It's of Ellen Degeneres' commencement speech at Tulane University and it cracked me up:

I never used to be a big fan of hers, but her style has evolved over the years and she's really grown on me. For those of you outside the US, she now has her own TV show. I rarely ever get to watch the whole thing, but I come across clips of it now again online, such as this one:

I don't really have any point to this post, but both of those videos made me laugh out loud, and hey- we can all use a little extra laughter in our day, right?

I have a million things to do, but so glad I took the time to watch these videos! Thanks, Sam. Ellen is so funny (and so was the 88 year old woman!). My favorite line was, "I didn't even go to college. I am not saying you wasted your time or money, but look at me - I am a big celebrity!". Too funny!

My grandad uses that "don't call me late for dinner" line allll the time! It must have been the cool joke in the 1930s or something. Thanks for sharing the laughs!

I saved the "I love Jesus" one in my you tube faves. Every time I need a laugh I go back and watch it, it's so hilarious, cracks me up every single time I watch it :)
