Laugh Out Loud at Your Library - Public Speaking

From The Speechwriter's Handbook of Humor by Robert Orben
I've practiced this speech all week and I feel pretty good about it. So, if you could just manage to look a little more like a bathroom mirror, we'll begin.

Let me put this in plain English. I'll translate it for the lawyers later.

A meeting like this always reminds me of golf. You go around for three hours and you end up right back where you started.

This is a very musical time of year. It's when they play "The Wedding March" for the brides, "Pomp and Circumstances" for graduates, and "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime" for parents.

We have time for just one more question on this rather controversial topic. How about the gentleman in the back with his wife's hand over his mouth?
Public speaking is terrifying! The great thing is you don't have to get up and speak to enjoy speakers' humor.

Find more Public Speaking humor, at your library today!
