[ light laughter ] bye! have fun! president obama's state of the union address last night was of focused on the wage gap, the
danger of climate change and p, house speaker paul ryan, on the other hand, was focused mostly on tryininto start a fire with his mindndmo [ light laughter ] president obama said last night that he treated d s last state of the union address just like s his first, because he's just as hungry. probably because he's only been allowed to eat kale for the last seven years. [ light laughter ] a buffalo man had his car frozen in a block of ice overnight after he parked too close to lake erie. which sounds frightening, but not as frightening as a buffalo man! [ light laughter ] he's just trying to meet people, though. i knowow a fort worth man fell into a large construction hole while walking to purchase lottery tickets.l when asked what he would buy4if he won, he said a ladder. [ lighghlaughter ]
week that it flew passengers a total of 223 billion miles in 2015. said the passengerer "for the love of god, please let us off this plane!" [ light laughter ] the main cast t the hit sit-com "frienen" will reunite for a two hour special in february. the episode will be titled "the one where you're reminded of your mortality."de the "washington post" has a new article out profiling the history of baby carrots, vealing that the bite-size vegetables are actually carved it from larger carrots. the article was written by the guy at the party no one wanted n to talk to. [ light laughter ] they're not actually children of still, the name would leave you to believe. they're not bred to be smaller el carrots, simply carved, if you will, whittled. [ laughter ]
i have reams of data. [ light laughter ] gole maps is adding a w feature that could use past location data to predict and suggest potential destinations while driving.in they're calling it "the reason for your divorce."e [ audience ohs ] i want to say to my head writer, who said, i think maybe we should pull that joke. you were right. [ light laughter ] a germrm meals on wheels charity apologized this week after serving three senior citizens dog food that was incorrectly labeled as venison and potatoes with garden vegetables. it s suld have read, i can't believe it's not venison and potatoes with garden vegetables.

relaxed now. [ light laughter ] and finally, in a radio interview tuesday, texas senator ted cruz attacked republican frontrunner donald trump by saying that trump quote, "embodies new york values." that brings us to a segment we call "a couple things." [ cheers and applause ] p first thing, how d de you imply there is such a thing as new york values. this city has the most inconsistent values of anywhere on earth, because it's filled with people from everywhere on earth.wh on a subway ride in new york, you can see one man give up his seat for a pregnant lady, and then see another man say to a different pregnant lady, i'm not moving. it's n n my fault you got knocked up. light laughter ] second thing, you can't use new york values as in insult to appeal to iowa voters, because i'm pretty sure during the holiday season, evevyone from iowa was here trying to get a selfie with themselves and a 70-foot tall christmas tree. there was a line at the m&m store. those weren't locals.
when new yorkers wants m ms, they don't go to the flagship store. [ light laughter ] third thing, new york is huge and donald trump is not new york. donald trump is like times square. there e sn't been a real new yorker in times square since al this guy got home. [ light laughter ] donald trump runs his mouth constantly, most new yorkers quietly go about their business. they literally had to start a campaign, if you see something, say something. because before, when we saw something, all we did was think, "eh this [ bleep ] guy." [ laughter and applause ] not like i would say anything, but give me a break.ny fourth thing. if you absolutely had to come up with a consensus of new york values, they would be these -- one, don't get atttthed to an umbrellath.w you're always gonna lose it, just let it go, find a new one. two, if you root for the jets, you're asking for it, that's on you. three, don't eat your pizza with a fork. [ cheers and applause ] see, he does not have new york
final thing, hey ted cruz, no ones talks [ bleep ] about new yorkers, except new yorkers.bo especially not some canadian born, dr. suess reading, na one-term senator from 1800 miles away. this has been a "couple things." [ cheers and applause ] we have a fantastic show for you tonight. he is an iconic rapper, producer and actor. he has a new film "ride along 2." ice cube is in the house tonight.he [ cheers and applause ] i'm so very, very excited about that. also, she is one of the stars of the new animated movie "norm of the north," heather graham is with us on late night tonight.

[ cheers and applause ] cannot wait for that. but before we get to all of that, have you ever noticed when you guys are googling things, have you ever noticed that t(ere are millions of results? now usually you only look atathe
last few pages, where the internet becomes wierder. [ light laughter ] becomes lonelier.. so allow me to take you into the bowels of the internet, with a segment we call "deep google." [ applause ] tonight on "deep google," the statue of liberty, one of the most iconic symbols of american cultre. so let's google the statue of liberty. now,w,ere's the first pagegef resultlt pretty much what you'd expect, wikipedia entry, information on e tours, but to look down at the bottom, at all of those os in n google. that means we can go deeper.go deeper into, "deepoogle." light laughter ] let's check out what's on page six. o "rejected statue of liberty renovation proposals." let's check that out. over the years, many renovatioio have been proposed of the statue of liberty. here are the ones that didn't make the cut. all right, let's check out what

[ light laughter ] good movie, it'd be a terrible o statue of liberty. folks, would you bieve that was only page 6? thth means we can still go deeper. deeper into, "deep google." [ scattered applause ] [ light laughter ] let's check out page 85 in the search results. let us in the butt!5 . a petition by daniel schuster to open tours to the butt portion of the statue of liberty. it seems kind of risky but i'm the kind of guy that takes those risks. let's take a look.ib >> hi, yeah.

[ laughter ] yeah, no i think that-- that would be funny to watch -- probably a less funny to live but, yeah. now, was it based on experience? did you -- like when you're writing a sex comedy and you have obviously relationships where -- [ inaudible ] have you had sex?
