This reminds me of Twain's "Advice to Youth"

This ancient, crusty old gem has got to be a double-post, right? Or was it already out of date before MeFi got in the swing of things and missed being posted?

Anybody posts the "Sunscreen" thing, and there's gonna be violence.

Absolutely hysterical. I had heard Conan did a bang-up job with this speech, but had never heard/read any of it. Thanks for the post!

I agree with Anil. This speech is at least as old as the Sunscreen thing! Hey, did you guys know that it wasn't really written by Kurt Vonnegut?

I like the three dead trolls in a baggie version of the Sunscreen song...

I posted the sunscreen thing a couple days ago. You wanna make something of it?

RE: Double Post

I searched for it, couldn't find it. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong though.
