Matthew McConaughey’s strange as hell commencement speech at UH
Matthew McConaughey is known for being “colorful,” but his deranged 45 minute University of Houston commencement speech -- in which he shared stories about naked bongo playing, crumbs being “the enemy,” and how you really shouldn’t own a “No Fear” T-shirt -- just may take the cake in terms of oddity.
George Vera, a 500lb man and 3rd-degree felony suspect, managed to pass multiple pat downs, first at the scene of his arrest, then at the city jail, and again when he was transferred to the Harris County jail, without police personnel finding the 9mm pistol hidden in his rolls of blubber. Once at lockup, Vera was even subjected to even more thorough searches, but to no avail. He must have gotten tired of being so damn badass, because he later admitted to having smuggled in a weapon during a shower break.
