Is it possible to just have Amy Poehler speak at every graduation ceremony from here on out?

Addressing Harvard University's class of 2011 on Wednesday, the Parks and Recreation star conjured up quite a few laughs with such quips as: "I can only assume I am here today because of my subtle and layered work in a timeless classic titled Deuce Bigelow: Male Gigolo" and "I tried to write today's speech the way I wrote everything in college—I stayed up all night, typing on a Canon word processor while listening to Sir Mix-a-Lot."

But we'll stop here so you can check out the entire speech in the clip, 'cause it's way funnier to hear them come from Poehler herself.
