Or maybe you voted for Cameron Diaz wearing nothing but a rubber bra

Why the hell would you want the bra on?

I might have actually gone to my HS graduation if Chevy had been giving the speech. As it was, I left HS early to go to college. There's only so much I could take.

Balls on, though. It would be a blast to see a recording of this speech. Anyone know anyone who taped it?

Has Chevy ever been funny?
 
2003-06-01 01:47:09 PM
Christmas Vacation Xtremehkr

Go rent it and ask that question again.

Chevy has very good comedic timming. I don't really think he's been that funny recently, but then again he's had no need to develop new material.
 
2003-06-01 02:03:17 PM
Chevy was hilarious in Caddy Shack and the first three Vacations....especially Christmas Vacation, but he is the suxor now. I read in something somewhere that guys are funny b/c it helps them get laid...when they get older, their sex drive slows down, and their ability to be funny goes with it...
 
2003-06-01 02:58:19 PM
Man, I thought his career was in the crapper when I saw him in an Aflac commercial opposite the duck puppet. He's doing high school commencement speeches now? This is a new low. Oh, and add Fletch to the list of great Chevy Chase movies...I still LMAO every time I see it.

Contrast and dichotomy.

I knew the name of the school sounded familiar Pomfret sounds like Pommes Frites which is German for French Fries. I knew the four years of German would come in handy someday.

/still waiting
 
2003-06-01 03:51:09 PM
So he has made about three funny movies, whopee doo. I think I have seen that one but it'd not on my list of all time classic comdey's.
 
2003-06-01 04:20:04 PM
Chevy was great in Caddyshack... one of the better comedies I've ever seen. And he was decent on SNL and some of the Vacation movies.

Otherwise... well, he's no Bill Murray.
 
2003-06-01 04:24:16 PM
Fletch was damn funny, folks. Represent!

Ah, it's good that Chevy came out of retirement to show us that he still sucks.
 
2003-06-01 04:28:10 PM
When's the next "Vacation" movie coming out? I think ageless kids are a pretty neat creation, especially when their parents are falling apart. :)

/Loved Caddyshack

Some people need practical advice.
 
2003-06-01 04:33:24 PM
Am I the only person who believes Jim Morrison didn't actually die, he just cut his hair and became Chevy Chase?

 
2003-06-01 04:39:08 PM
Three Amigos anyone?

C'mon... that movie is pure gold.
 
2003-06-01 04:40:09 PM
Forcor

why the hell would someone want to go from being Jim Morrison to being CHEVY FUKKIN' CHASE?
 
2003-06-01 04:41:08 PM
last time I checked, french fries in german is Franzsisch brt; and pommes frites is the FRENCH version. (pommes being apple, so apple fries it is, I guess)
 
2003-06-01 04:44:00 PM
Jim was way bloated when he passed, at which point Chevy was about 160 tops.
 
2003-06-01 04:44:35 PM
Hey, that's the town I live in.

It's a real craphole.
 
2003-06-01 04:44:50 PM
Forcor yes. yes you are.

Anyhoo, I would have preferred ANYONE other than Senator Dick Lugar (IN) who gave an awe-inspiring 45 minute re-election speech at my graduation last month.

Conragatulations, Graduates, Weapons of Mass Destruction blah, blah, blah, Weapons of Mass Destruction...

Fletch!

Vinnlandia, potatoes in france are the apples of the earth (pommes des terre). So pommes frites is the abbreviated version, I think.

A potato is a pomme de terre, hence pommes frites.

You have to have something to hold onto for the ride.

I don't really care about Chevy Chase, but Beverley D'Angelo was pretty hot in those scenes in Vacation I.

Everybody who's ever met him describes him as a real asshat in person.

At my graduation ceremony the speaker was head of RJB mining who had made his fortune by sacking thousands of employees.

The people who graduated the previous day got an explorer who had been to both the north and south pole and climbed Everest.

Her ass would do nicely for that

Vinnlandia:
Germans use the French word.

Maybe they could be in "Jackass, Also" the sequel, he said.

Are they trying to say that the Jackass sequel is called "Jackass, Also"???
 
2003-06-01 05:01:08 PM

Cos Chevy Chase isn't dead

... oh yeah...

/not paying attention

True that. Or, a handful of hair.

2003-06-01 05:07:17 PM
wait, they're making a Jackass sequel?
 
2003-06-01 05:09:12 PM
If they are making a sequel, then "Jackass, Also" has got to be the f*cking stupidest title ever!
 
2003-06-01 05:10:35 PM
Chevy Chase encourages graduates to try out for the Jackass sequel, mooch off their parents and have beer for breakfast every day

Good advice, it worked for dubya.

We got Elizabeth Dole when I graduated from college. She could have phoned her commencement address in and nobody would have noticed the difference.

"...driving a Hummer on a demolition coarse through town..."

that's some Coarse writing!
 
2003-06-01 05:22:18 PM
kewl. good to see that someone can do a HS Graduation speech and not have to mention war, Bush, saddam, North Korea, or any other miserable crap...
kids these days need some laughter, rather than the sh|t that's really going on.


/waits for the trolls to yell at him about something or other...
 
2003-06-01 05:24:22 PM
M0ppy, that's a good point. And don't let the flamers scare you.
 
2003-06-01 05:25:40 PM
Three Amigos also very funny! Back in the day very funny!
 
2003-06-01 05:28:09 PM
Hooptie:

Incidentally, "pommes frites" is also French for French fries.
 
2003-06-01 05:28:52 PM
Commencement speeches are such a complete waste of time. You get some asshat CEO or politician to drone on and on about whatever irrelevent meaningless cr*p they come up with. I would have killed for something different, at least Chevy would have been somewhat interesting. Good for this school.
 
2003-06-01 05:32:08 PM
He drove in his Mercedes using an automated map-finder that told him to prepare to turn where an old barn used to be

Well, at least he's ripping off jokes from his own movies... (Funny Farm, in this case.)

Danny Noonan: I gotta go to college. I gotta!
Ty Webb: Ahh, Danny, this isn't Russia. Is this Russia? This isn't Russia, is it?

Woman: Have you ever kissed a girl?

Dusty: Well sure, lots of times.

Woman: Would you like to kiss me?

Dusty: Yeah! (resumes playing guitar)

Woman: Well?

Dusty: What, now? Here?

Woman: Well, we could take a walk and you could kiss me on the viranda.

(Pause)

Dusty: Lips would be fine.

Xsarien: So you expect a comedian to use completely original joked every time they step onstage? No comedians do that--you gotta rotate.

I loved watching him get his brains beaten out on "The Great American Dream Machine."
