This is truly amazing!
Conan O'Brien was on hand yesterday to deliver the main address to the graduating class of 2011 at Dartmouth College, and as to be expected, he managed to flawlessly inject a powerful and articulate speech with his customary HIGHlarity and zaniness!
Check it out (above)!
One of the best we've heard - EVER!

Oh man! What we wouldn't give to be present for THIS!
Dartmouth College announced this morning that Conan O'Brien will be giving the commencement address to the school's graduating class of 2011!
Check out the announcement from Eric Tanner, Dartmouth's Student Body President (above)!
Apparently, the funnyman normally turns down these types of invitations, but because the college's President, Jim Kim, was a former student of O'Brien's father, Harvard University professor Thomas O'Brien, he agreed.
He says in a statement:
"I was honored to to be asked to give the commencement address to Dartmouth's graduating class of 2011, until I found out their first choice was Pauly D."
Lucky ducks! We hope you guys realize what a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity this one is!
Happy graduation, guys!
