One of the greatest parts of the early episodes of ‘The Simpsons’ was when Bart would phone up Moe and get him to shout out a dumb name at the bar and it seems like this is a prank that has transcended generations as people are still playing it on their high school principals during graduation.

Mississippi governor Tate Reeves was the man who was burned during a virtual graduation ceremony where he announced the names of everyone that had made it out of high school that year. Unfortunately for him, someone had slipped in a ‘Harry Azcrac’ to the names of those graduating and he read it out without skipping a beat, making him look like a bit of an idiot to the rest of the world.
Take a look at the footage below:

Lol. In fairness to Tate as well, he totally took it like a champ and owned it in the next tweet he posted from his account:
Harry’s submitter has a bright future as a Simpson’s writer!
In 10 minutes we’ll be honoring more graduates on Facebook Live. Maybe even Ben—the pride of the Dover family. https://t.co/Njw0GcNCXN

Gotta rate that. Nice to see politicians not taking themselves too seriously over stuff like that as well given our political leaders at the moment as well.
