'But Trust Me On The Sunscreen'

Tis the season for college commencement speeches, most of them ineffably predictable and profoundly boring.

A conspicuous exception was the speech that the late great novelist Kurt Vonnegut was said to have delivered to the graduating class of MIT in 1997. It was a howler and sparked a hit novelty song. The only trouble was, it was an (early) Internet hoax and Kofi Annan was the actual speaker.

No matter, here it is in all of its loony glory.
