It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia is one of the greatest comedies on television today.
So it makes sense that the actor, who arguably portrays the greatest character on the show, would be able to write a hilarious speech.
The part that we weren't expecting was the inspiration hidden INSIDE the speech!

Stephen Colbert's alma mater, Northwestern University, will be giving the Colbert Report host an honorary degree during the school's commencement on June 17.
Other folks who have received such an honor from Northwestern include computer science expert Barbar Liskov, death penalty/international criminal law scholar William Schabas, and opera singer Jessye Norman.
Those OTHER recipients may have some pret-ty impressive sounding jobs….but did any of them write, produce, AND star in Strangers with Candy? Didn't think so!
Congratulations, Stephen! We're happy for you!
Do U think Stephen Colbert deserves an honorary degree?

During the Hasty Pudding press conference, the Social Network star had the following to say about his nonexistent college experience:
"Secretly, I always wanted to go to college, and I didn't get the chance to do that."
You can always go back, Justin!
Talk to James Franco…he'll give you the inside scoop.
