Something on the light side today. A few days ago, I published a post analyzing Conan O’Brien’s terrific commencement address at Dartmouth College. Today I came across a clip from Conan’s TV show in which he poked a little fun at President Obama and his ability to drink Guinness during his visit to Ireland in May 2011. Oh, the fun you can have with a speech when you splice a couple of videos together and slow the audio down.
To my Irish friends, especially Mel Kelly, and anyone who enjoys Guinness, I say “Cheers!” or, more appropriately, “Sláinte!” (pronounced “Slawn-chuh”.)
