How did Anderson Cooper respond to a very somber introduction to his commencement speech at Tulane University? By following up the rattling off of his list of accomplishments by telling students he was basically drunk on his own graduation day and very well may have been having gay sex the night of.
Giving a college commencement speech, if you haven’t already learned this week, is a rite of passage for news anchors. There’s a lot of pressure here, too: Parents want to remember their kids’ graduation with star power, and if Cooper had bombed not only would it have been burned into the memories of now debt-riddled parents, but on YouTube too.
Fortunately, Cooper delivered. But college sex jokes are always funny. They’re also easy, just like having sex in college.
