Jim Carrey at MUM Graduation

Jim Carrey plants a new seed in the cornfields of Iowa

Jim Carrey gave the commencement speech recently in the cornfields of Iowa – hilarious! He was funny, wise, and at times emotional . . the graduating class of 2014 roared with laughter when he took a jab at Monsanto:

“I’m here to plant a seed today. A seed that will inspire you to move forward in life with enthusiastic hearts and a clear sense of wholeness. The question is, will that seed have a chance to take root–or will I be sued by Monsanto?”

Carrey concluded his talk with these words: “You are ready and able to do beautiful things in this world, and as you walk through those doors today, you will only have two choices: love or fear. Choose love, and don’t ever let fear turn you against your playful heart.”

Here is the full commencement speech. His comments about Monsanto are in the first few minutes.
