Chris Pratt’s Acceptance Speech at the MTV Awards


Although he’s been several TV programs, I did not know about him until the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I found him very likable in that role. This morning I came across his acceptance speech at the MTV awards.

Now I would not watch that show on a bet, but I was interested in the audience reaction. This story is all over the news this morning – yea!! If you click on the article, you will find the Twitter clip showing him speaking and the audience cheering and clapping. Perhaps his speech is like “signs of land”, a turning tide – whatever we might call it, it was spectacular.

Number one: breathe. If you don’t, you’ll suffocate.​

Number two: You have a soul. Be careful with it.​

Number three: Don’t be a turd. If you’re strong, be a protector and if you’re smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons and do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than that.​

Number four: When giving a dog medicine, put the medicine in a little piece of hamburger and they won’t even know they’re eating medicine.​

Number five: Doesn’t matter what it is, earn it. A good deed, reach out to someone in pain, be of service, it feels good and it’s good for your soul.​

Number six: God is real. God loves you. God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do.​

Number seven: If you have to poop at a party, but you’re embarrassed because you’re going to stink up the bathroom, just do what I do. Lock the door. Sit down, get all the pee out first. Okay? Then, when all the pee’s done, poop-flush-boom. You minimize the amount of time that the poop is touching the air because if you poop first, then it takes you longer to pee and you’re peeing on it, stirring it up and the poop particles create a cloud that goes out and then everyone at the party will know that you pooped. Just trust me, it’s science.​

Number eight: Learn to pray. It’s easy and it’s so good for your soul.​

Number nine: Nobody is perfect. People are going to tell you you’re perfect just the way you are; you’re not! You are imperfect. You always will be, but there’s a powerful force that designed you that way. And if you’re willing to accept that you will have grace and grace is a gift. Like the freedom we enjoy in this country that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget it. Don’t take it for granted.​

God bless you. Please get home safely.​ (Source)

Open a window at first helps a bit, too, I’ve heard.
Well, it’s different.
I like Chris Pratt.
