Hey Guys,

I'm going to be helping Northwestern University with their streaming broadcast of the Colbert commencement address this June 17. Colbert is advertising this event on his website and stuff, so technically I'm a part of something pretty substantial relating to Stephen Colbert, which I think is pretty cool.

I'm a very small part of all of this, but if you want to treat me like I'm a pretty big deal I won't stop you.

You're going to play the lounge thread placement police game with me over Colbert's commencement address?

The question for me is whether this is resumé worthy... It's a bit of a stretch, but not technically inaccurate

I'd say yes resume worthy, cant hurt.
You arent special. You dont have value just because you were born. You are a net drain on the planet. Respect must be earned & your value must be proven. Endangered species are special, & their survival should take priority over your comfort.

I think besson is the guy in the white beard behind him.

No, but if we can ever turn bribe into edible meat that sounds like a nice little business plan: selling edible celebrity bribe.

In fact, seeing how my whole selling stool samples for science didn't sell at the volume I was hoping, maybe I should revamp my product line and sell my edible stool samples for science? Or, edible stool samples and leave out the science part for those into intelligent design?

I could even look into various dyes for coloring so that people can collect them in different colors? Maybe a special MacNN blue color that matches MacNN that would be a special MacNN only special edition?

You're better off selling bribe to politicians.

I love my money censor, it's sort of like a perpetual game of word roulette!

I think there should be more MacNN censorship, including even just random words. It makes things fun for all of us, especially those that like puzzles and games!

Maybe you can try to fool the filter by spelling "poop" backwards.
