This was a great moment in Jerry Seinfeld’s Duke commencement speech.

I do think he should have followed the line about his family correcting his joke with “thanks grandma,” but who am I to kvetch?

AThinksAloud: Notice the two moments when the crowd surprised Jerry by exploding in applause: 1. “I’m a Jew from New York.” 2. “We’re embarrassed about things we should be proud of, and proud of things we should be embarrassed about.” All college kids are NOT Maoists. Don’t lose hope.
