Everyone is talking about Chris Pratt's acceptance speech for the MTV Generation Award

‘We didn’t have a pot to piss in growing up.’

THE MTV MOVIE and TV Awards were broadcast last night, and much talk has been devoted to the speech Chris Pratt delivered upon accepting the MTV Generation Award.

The 38-year-old actor, whose career accelerated massively following his casting in Parks and Recreation back in 2009, used the moment to impart a little wisdom.

And sure no better time than the moment you’re recognised as an icon for your generation, right?

The speech featured all the usual suspects; love, family and our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; nothing strange there.

And then Chris went off on one.

From offering advice on how to give a dog medicine to schooling viewers on the best way to, ehm, ‘poop at a party’, Chris left no stone unturned when it came to the old life advice.

In fact, he even entitled it; ’9 rules from Chris Pratt’.

This being the Generation Award, I’m going to cut to the chase and I’m going to speak to you, the next generation. I accept the responsibility as your elder, so listen up.

And Twitter was definitely here for it.
