When writing a speech, keep in mind that it's just like choosing a skirt. Too long and you'll look like a batty librarian, too short and we'll all know you probably haven't got a future in education, amirite?

Out of all the "speeches are like skirts" analogy posts, this is one of the better ones.

I don't think it was the same one (wary).
The usual joke is "short enough to cover the topic, long enough to keep it interesting." I modified mine to include why they shouldn't be too long, and so that I could use the phrase "batty librarian." I love that phrase.

I believe you mean "short enough to keep it interesting, and long enough to cover the topic."

What's a speach? Is that like a speech about peaches?

I think I read a similar thing ages ago
And I liked that version better
Lemme see if I can remember...
"Essays are like skirts, long enough to cover everything, but short enough to be interesting"

I am terrible at speeches and essays and the like. But I still have a very bright future in education because the languages and humanities isn't all there is to school. Just thought I'd point that out.

For some reason I read your comment in the voice of Wheatley from Portal 2. It sounds like something he would say.

Mine is a parody of those. It says why they also shouldn't be too long and it uses the phrase "batty librarian," so it's not the same joke. As I explained above.
