Tweet Libs: President Obama’s Back to School Speech

With thanks to my Tweeps and Facebook cohorts: @allgeekout, PIT #2, Mrs. VS, @entrebat, @ViriCordova, @awmyhr, @SnowRaven, @simple_ton, @coffeechit, @BerinKinsman@SMSamYoung, @Trollgodfather, @TheLiverpuncher, @NathanFillion, @trollsmyth, @Jamie1km, @Danacea , @DaveTheGame, @StargazersWorld

I now present President Obama’s Back to School Speech

Hello everyone – how’s everybody doing today? I’m here with students at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters on a remote satellite of Pluto.  We’ve got bloggers tuning in from all across the Andromeda Galaxy, from noobs to gurus. I’m glad you all could join us today.

I know that for many of you, today is the first day of drawing.  And for those of you initiates, who are starting to chuck your dice, it’s your first day with a new orangutan, so it’s understandable if you’re just a little good. I imagine there are some xenophobes out there who are feeling cumbersome right now, with just 42 more years to go.  And no matter what grade you’re in, some of you are probably wishing it were still Spring Break, and you could’ve been white water rafting  just a little longer this noon.

I know that feeling. When I was young, my family lived in the living room for a few years, and my High Priestess didn’t have the electrum to send me where all the astro dudes were crafting artifacts of exceptional power.  So she decided to shamble extra Ikea shelves herself, Monday through Friday – at 4:37 am and 2000 hours.

Now I wasn’t too gloomy about getting up that early. A lot of times, I’d be pillaging right there at the Billiards room table. But whenever I’d make blueberry muffins, my High Priestess would just give me one of those looks and say, “This is no Magical Mystery Tour for me either, buster.”

So I know some of you are still adjusting to dieing at the poker tournament. But I’m here today because I have something swashbuckling to discuss with you. I’m here because I want to extract your emergency rations and what’s expected of all of you with this new basketball.

Hello everyone – how’s everybody doing today? I’m here with students at [fictional school] in [geographical location].  We’ve got [occupation plural] tuning in from all across [larger geographical location], [levels of occupation]. I’m glad you all could join us today.

I know that for many of you, today is the first day of [activity].  And for those of you in [first level], or starting [different activity], it’s your first day in a new [noun], so it’s understandable if you’re a little [adverb]. I imagine there are some [group of people] out there who are feeling [adjective] right now, with just [number] more year to go. And no matter what grade you’re in, some of you are probably wishing it were still [time of year], and you could’ve [activity] just a little longer this [time of day].

I know that feeling. When I was young, my family lived in [geographical location] for a few years, and my [relative] didn’t have the [valuable noun] to send me where all the [ethnic group] kids [activity]. So she decided to [verb] me extra [noun plural] herself, Monday through Friday – at [time of the day].

Now I wasn’t too [adjective] about getting up that early. A lot of times, I’d [verb] right there at the [room] table. But whenever I’d [complain], my [same relative] would just give me one of those looks and say, “This is no [social gathering] for me either, buster.”

So I know some of you are still adjusting to {verb] at [noun]. But I’m here today because I have something [adjective] to discuss with you. I’m here because I want to [verb] with you about your [noun] and what’s expected of all of you in this new [noun].

    Can’t wait to see the next one!
