Cosby’s Graduating Comedy May 20, 2007

Posted by Sharath Rao in America, CMU, humor.

So apparently I am done with my masters and will have the graduation ceremony later today. Also as things would have it, the Carnegie Mellon commencement ceremony is going to be webcast live. Here is more information if you have time to kill.

Given that this is the formal ceremony where only doctorate degrees are awarded, the probability of finding me in the webcast, though non-zero, is nearly zero.

Commencement speaker : Comedian Bill Cosby, ( who is kinda like America’s Johny Walker, except that there is no alcoholic ( or otherwise ) drink named after him. )

P.S : By the way, I have never been able to find out ( simply because it did not bother me that much so far ) why the last act of a degree conferring is called ‘commencement’. Commencing what ? Will find out and post the answer tomorrow.

P.P.S : Found some cool pictures of the CMU campus here.
