Good morning, graduating class of 2019. Some of you may be wondering what this gathering is all about, since you rarely showed up for class. Let me explain. Every May or June, graduating students all over the nation put on their black gowns and mortar boards and sweat in the summer heat for three hours while they are given wise words of advice – onward and upward, that sort of thing. Well, if you don’t know the direction by now, it’s too late. So commencement speeches are like being handed a roadmap after you’ve arrived at your destination. I have been selected to be this year’s commencement speaker for this university due to my brilliance, high grades when I was a student, and the fact that I just donated a new dorm.

Ever heard of Sleep Deprivation Supremacy Syndrome? Of course you haven’t, because it doesn’t exist and I just made it up. Actually, it does exist. Only problem is no scientist has been smart enough to sample a diverse group of 537 couples to get a margin of error that deserves publication in the esteemed Journal of Parental Malpractice. That’s why you can’t find out anything about SDSS on Google. And yes, I just made up SDSS because I’m ahead of my time in the world of modern medicine. I also understand the tenants of the vaunted acronym. Because I believe every edition of our newspaper should help our readers learn something new, let me give you the basics of this Sleep Deprivation Supremacy Syndrome. It starts with a husband and wife right about the time they welcome their … [Read more...] about Sleep supremacy is a real problem for parents
