No one is more deserving of pudding than Amy Poehler! Oh, or awards!

The Parks And Recreation star was this year's recipient of the Hasty Pudding Award from Harvard University's theatrical department on Thursday!

Amy didn't dress in drag like last year's winner Neil Patrick Harris, but she did allow the Hasty Pudding Theatricals to roast her.

Unfortunately for the students, you don't kid a kidder!

When Amy finally gave her acceptance speech, she zinged them right back, saying:

"I'd like to thank you, Hasty Pudding, for reminding me how hard it is to write funny jokes…

When I was growing up in Burlington, Harvard University used to be a group of buildings we threw rocks at on our way to a real job. And as I drove by and gave the middle finger to this place, I never knew that you guys would be giving me all this s**t."

Ha! And in one speech, Amy reminds everyone why she's so deserving of the honor!

Ch-ch-check out more pics of the ceremony (above)!
