Tonight Show Highlights

Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Looks like Paula Deen’s contract with the Food Network will not be renewed after some fallout from her admitting to using a racial slur. She’s going to appear on the Today Show this Wednesday to discuss the scandal, as well as the benefits of covering your foot with butter before putting it in your mouth.

You know, this NSA leaker guy, Edward Snowden, somehow he was able to get out of the United States with all this information. What are the odds, out of 350 million Americans, that the only one the government wasn’t watching, was him?

In the middle of all these scandals President Obama got some good news today. The IRS ruled he can write-off the first-half of his second term as a total loss.

Scientists in Japan say that by the end of 2013 they’re going to be growing human organs in pigs and transplanting them into humans. They say there’s almost no side effects, except that during sex you’ll squeal a little more.

The comedy segment was Headlines. There were a couple of funny ones, but I can’t justify making you watch the entire thing.

Steve Carrell was the first couch guest. He’s in the upcoming film Despicable Me 2. The interview was good. Steve was charismatic, down-to-earth and told some amusing stories. I really like Steve. I think he’s a talented actor and a naturally funny guy. Plus, he seems like such a normal dude. I could honestly listen to him talk for an entire show. The interview is worth checking out, despite the fact that some idiot thought it was a good idea to break it into four clips:

Ken Ilgunas was the second couch guests. He wrote a book called Walden on Wheels. The interview was very interesting. In order to live without debt Ken lived in a van for two years while attending grad school at Duke. He then he wrote a book about his adventures. Ken was visibly nervous, but he did well and even managed a joke or two. Here’s the interview:

Barenaked Ladies was the musical guest. They gave a nice performance, but they’re just not the same without Steve.

Enjoyable show. I give it:


– Woody
