[ cheers and applause ] >> steve: from studio 6b in rockefeller center in the heart of new york city, it's "the tonight show starring jimmy fallon." tonight, join jimmy and his guests -- billy joel, j.k. simmons, and featuring the legendary roots crew. >> questlove: 394. >> steve: and now, here he is,
[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: hey. oh! that's the best crowd right there. oh, my goodness. that's a great new york city crowd, right here tonight. welcome, everybody. welcome to "the tonight show." thank you so much for being here. thank you for watching. here's what people are talking about. since the first primaries are about a month away, and the candidates are really starting to -- yeah. i mean, the fact that at a a rally in new hampshire, bernie sanders mocked donald trump for thinking that climate change is a hoax created by the chinese.
so, at this point, most people are starting to feel like trump is a hoax created by the chinese. [ laughter and applause ] that's not real. no, he's real. he's real. he's real. >> steve: wall. >> jimmy: bernie sanders gave another speech here in new york city yesterday and ended up speaking for almost an hour. we can't show you the whole speech, but we condensed it down to what bernie really wanted to say. >> [ bleep ] big banks and [ bleep ] wall street. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: simple. in and out. >> steve: in, out, boom. >> jimmy: ten seconds. >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: the other big news is actually kind of scary. north korea announced yesterday that it has successfully carrying out it's first hydrogen bomb test. either that, or they just got their first chipotle. but either way, it doesn't matter. something happened. i don't remember. i didn't read the whole article. a thing? >> jimmy: i didn't read the whole article. some more news from overseas. members of the british parliament are going to meet
whether or not to ban donald trump from entering the u.k. one member of parliament said, "look, we have enough guys with ridiculous looking things on their heads making sure nobody gets over a fence. and that's right. [ laughter and applause ] you can take that to the bank. of course, we're a week into the new year. and a lot of us have new year's resolutions. even mark zuckerberg posted on facebook that one of his new year's resolutions is to run 365 miles in 2016. yeah, that's right. just had a baby and he's getting into running. so if there's ever a time to un-friend zuckerberg on facebook, it's now. [ laughter and applause ] it's like, "yeah, we get it. congratulations." "i just ran a 5k, dedicated to my baby girl." [ laughter ] there are reports that twitter is going to increase its character limit from 140 characters to 10,000 characters. you hear that? [ audience boos ] they said they've already been testing it out on the internet. i gotta say, i really don't
writing longer tweets. let's look at some examples here. this first one says -- with the 140 character limit, this person tweeted, "can't wait to try the new thai restaurant that opened in my neighborhood. #excited." with the 10,000 character limit, the same person tweeted, "can't wait to try the new thai restaurant that opened in my neighborhood. i've never been to thailand. i've never been to a hockey game. [ laughter ] my cousin got hit in the hair with a puck once. almost hit his head, but just hit his hair. close call. #excited." [ cheers and applause ] >> steve: too much. >> jimmy: take a look at this one here. with the 140 character limit, the person tweeted, "help, can't get out of bed this morning, so comfortable, #lol." with the 10,000 character limit, that same person tweeted, "help, can't get out of bed this morning, so comfortable. it's because my pillow is goose down. i never got into a pillow fight, or a food fight. my cousin got into a food fight once. some dude whipped an avocado at him. it hit him in the hair. just his hair got hurt. #lol."
you see what i'm saying? you guys want one more example? >> audience: yeah! >> steve: a lot of hair stuff! >> jimmy: you sure about that? >> audience: yeah! >> jimmy: look, here's a a 140 character limit. the person tweeted, "high temp is 18 degrees today. #wtf." with 10,000 character limit, the same person tweeted, "high temp of 18 degrees today. sure is cold. at least it's not snowing. i've never been hit by a a snowball. [ laughter ] my cousin got hit by a snowball once. some kid threw it at his head, but it hit him in the hair. #wtf." you see, the 10,000 character limit is obviously a big mistake. [ cheers and applause ] >> steve: a lot of hair. >> jimmy: i agree with you. >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: his cousin almost -- had a close call. >> steve: yeah, that's a close call when you get hit in the hair. >> jimmy: absolutely. guys, this is pretty exciting here. gem experts in sri lanka said they've discovered the largest blue star sapphire they ever found. it's worth over $100 million. unfortunately, last night, some old lady threw it off the back of a boat. [ laughter and applause ]
[ laughter ] >> steve: near. far. >> jimmy: you just threw that jewelry. >> steve: i did not. >> jimmy: i didn't know what i was doing. [ laughter ] >> steve: mrs. sandler. >> jimmy: we risked our lives looking for this jewel. you could have said something. oh, i didn't know. i thought -- near far wherever you are [ applause ] [ gibberish ] >> steve: lunch lady! [ laughter ] >> jimmy: guys, finally, this is pretty cool here. several companies are working together to replace thousands of pay phones here in new york city with free wi-fi hotspots. [ cheers and applause ] officials say that new yorkers need a more modern, more technologically advanced thing
[ laughter and applause ] that's right. we have a great show tonight. [ cheers and applause ] we really do. give it up for the roots. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: get ready for some fun tonight. >> steve: yeah. oh, it's going to be fun. >> jimmy: guys, i'm just so excited about tonight. i mean this is good. right? you feel it? [ cheers and applause ] this guy is just fun. you feel it, you know when it's happening. it's just -- i mean. he's one of the greatest musicians of all time. i can already see the standing ovation happening now. he's a great new yorker. a great performer. billy joel is in the house tonight. [ cheers and applause ] my goodness. he's at madison square garden. he's doing this thing, every couple months. every month.
every show better than the last. it's unbelievable. it's record-breaking. he's just the greatest. and tonight, he's going to perform a fun song. i should also say, we have another guest on the show. he's one of the voices in "kung fu panda 3," academy award-winner j.k. simmons is here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] >> steve: lovely man. lovely, lovely man. >> jimmy: was it "whiplash?" >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: he was just fantastic in that. then we're going to close out the show with a billy joel song that he's never performed on a a show ever. on television. [ cheers and applause ] yeah. but he should. he should have. >> steve: he should have. >> jimmy: he should have. >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: that's good. yeah, you're going to freak out. [ light laughter ] >> questlove: what is it? >> jimmy: i can't tell you what it is. that's because that would give away the secret of the fun. >> steve: it's a secret. >> jimmy: it's a fun surprise. >> steve: yeah. fun surprise. >> jimmy: hey, guys, the nfl

brenda and eddie were the popular steadies and the king and the queen of the prom riding around with the car top down and the radio on nobody looked any finer or was more of a hit at the parkway diner we never knew we could want more than that out of life surely brenda and eddie would always know how to survive brenda and eddie were still going steady in the summer of '75 when they decided the marriage would be at the end of july everyone said they were crazy brenda you know you're much too lazy eddie could never afford to live that kind of life but there we were waving
eddie goodbye they got an apartment with deep pile carpet and a couple of paintings from sears a big waterbed that they bought with the bread they had saved for a couple of years they started to fight when the money got tight and they just didn't count on the tears they lived for a while in a very nice style but it's always the same in the end they got a divorce as a matter of course and they parted the closest of friends
