Unity College Commencement Speech


Ari's human, Kathryn PhD invited me to give the commencement speech at the school where she teaches. And I got an honorary doctorate, so now I am Doc Tubey. (I've noticed something weird at universities. Most professors last name is PhD. I think it's pronounced "fud." I guess they were bred to be professors. I don't understand humans.)

Here's a picture of me receiving my degree:

This is my speech:
Ari, Kathryn PhD, all other PhD's, family, friends, and especially the new graduates, thank you for inviting me to your graduation. And of course for the doctorate.

My advice for everyone is to not be stupid!

Now, let's eat some cheese and bacon!

After the Unity humans and their friends and families joined me for cheese and bacon, I got my picture taken with some of the graduates:

Congratulations Dr Tubey! Do you think I might become a Dr after I finish studying at the Stormy Zoluschka Kryschtal School of Siberian Studies?

Professor Turbofire,
I've heard quite a few commencement speeches in my life, but none as poignant and provocative as yours. If only all of our blog friends could have seen the look of pure awe on the faces of those graduates: they were absolutely glistening with inspiration (or maybe it was just bacon grease?)

PS- My sister-in-law says that PhD is just an abbreviation for "post-hole-digger."

Wow! a PhD ~ congratulations! It was difficult enough just getting my BA. I was hoping Kathyrn was going to be invited to give the commencement speech at my college graduation. I would really enjoy hearing her & Ari speak. But my college had other plans. What were they thinking?

Congratulations Dr. Turbo!

Thanks for the pronunciation guide. I always wondered how you should say that PhD word...
