Late Show Highlights

Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Show with David Letterman:

LeBron James was under a lot of pressure, and he’s not taking it well. Lost in six games and he’s not taking it well. Today he demanded to see Dirk Nowitzki’s birth certificate.

I don’t fully understand it. Everybody here in New York City is in a great mood because Dallas won. Even the hookers in Times Square, bless their hearts. They’re running today something called the LeBron James Special: For an extra 50 dollars they’ll choke.

It’s sunny today. Beautiful day outside. So sunny Anthony Weiner saw his shadow. That means six more weeks of wiener jokes.

The desk segments included Top Ten Betty White Tips for Living a Long and Happy Life. The list was read by Betty White and was one of the funniest Top Tens I’ve seen in a while:

Admiral Mike Mullen was the only couch guest. He serves as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. It’s a refreshing change of pace when someone of this caliber is on a late-night talk show. I’m proud of Letterman’s team for having him on and dedicating as much time of the show as possible, 25 out of 43 minutes in this case, to him.

The interview was very interesting and entertaining:. The first segment focused on a young Admiral Mullen at the Naval Academy and during his first command.

The second segment mostly concerned the status of Iraq, Afghanistan and the condition of troops as they come home from serving in those countries:

The final segment was a discussion on the mission to kill Osama bin Laden:

Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears was the musical guest. They were really good.

Good show. I give it:
