Bill Clinton’s speech was super fucking great… but it was also super fucking long. On this past Wednesday night at the DNC, former President Bill Clinton took quite a long time at the podium — and rightfully so. In all, Clinton took a total of 48 minutes. Compared to his longest speech in 1996 — which clocked in at 65 minutes — the time fell short by 17 minutes. DNC correspondent Jason Oberholtzer took the opportunity to poke fun of the Former Prez’s long-windedness by coming up with a list of things that you could have done in those 48 minutes.
• Walk from one side of Charlotte to the other
• Get through half a game of Settlers of Catan
• Microwave and eat a pack of hotdogs, one at a time
• Metabolize one beer
• Get halfway through a sleep cycle
• Read 12 pages of Proust
• Watch Gangnam Style 11 times
