‘How to spot an idiot’ is a strong contender for Best Graduation Speech Ever

Graduation ceremonies might be very special for those receiving their new qualifications, but that doesn’t mean they can’t sometimes (often?) also be incredibly tedious.

This graduation ceremony at Northwestern University in Illinois avoided boring the gowns off all present when the state Governor, J.B. Pritzker gave a speech based on The Office, including this advice on how to spot an idiot.

I wish there was a foolproof way to spot idiots, but counterintuitively, some idiots are very smart.

They can dazzle you with words and misdirection.

They can get promoted above you at work.

They can even be elected president.

People wholeheartedly agreed with the good advice.

If you remember the Scott’s Tots episode of The Office, this makes a lot of sense.
