According to sources the 2017 Commencement speaker had some “choice words” that a reputable publication like this one has the sense not to print. But fear not! Emerson College had a plan to make sure no scandal would erupt from 2017’s choice of words. Agent J popped out with the memory wiper and implanted memories of Jay Leno coming back as the commencement speaker. The audience was reported as “sleepy and confused, but otherwise, no worse for wear,” by the clean up crew. This is the fourth year that the Jay Lenno Speech has been reused, despite the fact it was delivered only three years ago, that’s how good this school is. If you asked anyone high lights from last year’s speech, they’d just start listing his rules for show business. More on this as it develops… wait there was a flash, what was I writing about?
The hologram of Emerson College’s founder made an appearance at the class of 2017’s commencement. During the ceremony, the hologram talk of his memories of the college and provided wisdom for the graduating seniors.
“I recall when I founded the college in 1880- two years before my death at the age of 76, according to Wikipedia. Times have certainly changed. Back in the 1880s, the Union Savings Bank Building’s sole purpose was banking, the MPR had a single purpose, and social media was big- but not quite huge yet,” recited the a three-dimensional image of the old man formed by the interference of light beams. “After all this time, however, this remains the only comprehensive college or university in America dedicated exclusively to…”
At press time, the image speaker looked down at its also holographic note card after an awkward pause to sound out the last part of the speech.
“…communication and the arts in a liberal arts context.”

Just hours after the closing of its Boylston Street location, Einstein’s Bagels™ became the newest host to numerous demonic creatures in its now vacant restaurant.
One ghost was happy at home before a layer of dust could even appear on the now-dormant bagel and coffee shop’s counters.
“Yeah this place is pretty nice! It’s got it all. Totally spacious,” said the spirit of a 8-year old girl who was murdered at the corner of Boylston and Tremont in 1645. “I could really see myself materializing here for the rest of eternity, much like the students who once waited in line here for equally as long.”
Other evil spirits were hoping to one day be the feature of an Emerson student’s VM120 project.
At press time, two horny teenagers were hooking up behind the now-vacant counter.
Reports surfaced Thursday night that a local establishment is lit.
