What Happens When Charlie Day Speaks at Your Commencement

It's famous-people-commencement-speech season! The time of year when you watch the likes of Sandra Bullock give moving speeches and you get inspired and angry that your speaker was the House Minority Whip. Well, Merrimack College got alumnus Charlie Day, and the result was as expectedly very funny and solidly inspirational. Sorry, we meant Dr. Charlie Day, as the school gave him an honorary doctorate for this. Not too bad for a guy who gets paid to eat spaghetti in a steam room.
