I asked my friends about this topic and most of them said that I should have linked to The Simpsons video in the first post.

I’ve got to admit that I didn’t watch all of the videos in the list. I watched only some, and only after I’ve persuaded myself to pause scrolling whatever it is that I constantly scroll and tap. It wasn’t easy to pause, but once I did, I enjoyed those videos a lot.

I also have to admit that if you ask me to recall only one of them off the top of my head, then I will say “The Simpsons.”

In the time when everyone is used to 15 sec clips, it is not surprising that 1:45 sec animated short is more memorable than 10 min speeches. So, by popular demand:

I think, Lisa is the most responsible of the Simpsons and she says a lot of the good stuff. But if you ask me to recall just one scene from the clip, sadly, it got to be Bart who had captured my attention by his master move, lol.

This got me thinking… Should I have linked different video in the OP?

Please, tell me which one would be the best:

  • The Simpsons clip
  • 10 sec gif of Bart
  • President’s Speech
  • Other video from the list
  • Don’t post this topic at all

And, if you would choose another video from the list, please, share which one and why.

How would that other video capture similarity of Class of 2020 missing out on their graduation ceremony and many of us missing out on Worlds 2020?

As good as seeing Obama’s speech, nothing is as entertaining as the simpsons trying to keep their cool but failing miserably saying “Congratulations!”

If I got to choose from the list, my second choice would be Google CEO, Sundar Pichai.

But if I may pick one not on the list, then Conan O’Brien is as goofy as Simpsons and as serious as the serious guys.

Go #Team Coco!

As far as inspirational speeches go, I like the wisdom from good old ‘Arnie’
