[ laughter ] call it "receptacles" or something. just kept hanging right around that curb there. until finally it met a tragic end. yeah. [ laughter ] why is that sad? why do we attach human qualities to everything? [ laughter ] let's go out to hollywood boulevard right now. okay. so guillermo -- we put a gopro on a toy boat, and guillermo is out there.
11:38 pm
the -- [ cheers and applause ] the little river that runs past our studio. and there it goes. you know, usually that gutter is full of passed-out superheroes. so we're actually very fortunate. pretty good clip. that's a little guillermo we put in the boat there to drive it. there you go. it's like a chase scene out of a look at that. there he is. kind of adorable. and now it's turned boring.

[ laughter ] but in honor of this historic television milestone we put together a salute to the most memorable "american idol" winners over the years. great names. names like, well, kelly clarkson. names like carrie underwood. huge star. jordin sparks, who was a winner of "american idol." no? taylor something. this one was sharon? i think. this guy is -- this is either steven or david or -- maybe a --

[ speaking foreign language ]. >> jimmy: i don't know why that's funny, but it is. they haven't perfected color television yet, but they do have a hydrogen bomb.
11:41 pm
i should say they claim to have a hydrogen bomb. ay said the evidence, you know, they got the shock waves or whatever, does not support their claim. but the north korean government released a statement that said, sh than dropping a hunting gun before herds of ferocious wolves." does that make any sense? [ laughter ]to do with a gun? eat it? meanwhile, after they made the announcement, the people of is is great, now can we have food and shoes? [ laughter ] and the dear leader of north , celebrated this alleged scientific achievement with a fresh new haircut that -- [ laughter ] i think says it all. that's the rachel of north korea.] what do you want to bet we see someone with that very haircut at the grammys this year? oh, you're back? >> yeah.doing? >> good.

11:43 pm

11:48 pm
>> jimmy: welcome back. nd music from the internet is on the way. but first i want to carve some time out of tonight's show to share something i figured out over the break. and engage in passive-aggressive behavior, but thanks to the way we use technology now there's a new way to be passive aggressive understand. it's the passive-aggressive text message. now, if you don't know what i mean by that, here's an example. you ask a simple can i bring dave to dinner tonight? and the person to whom you're texting replies, sure, with an exclamation point.text you could reasonably assume the person on the other end is happy about
11:49 pm
but what about this? you ask, can i bring dave to and your husband or wife or girlfriend says, sure, with a period.xt, but the subtext of the text not -- instead of the exclamation point, exclamation point means i thought we were going out just care if dave comes or maybe it means i don't like dave. [ laughter ] you don't know. well, let's look at another example here. simple message.up some milk on the way home? and your textmate replies, of course. if you got this, you can assume there will be a container of tor when this person gets home. but what if you ask this same question, can you pick up some milk on the way home?e letter k. [ laughter ] if you got this, i think you can assume the person will get the the letter k is like the text
11:50 pm
at someone. it's like what a teenager does when you ask how her day was. but this might be worse. now, try again. can you pick up some milk on the way home? and the answer is, yup.o i'll get the milk but why the hell can't you get the milk? i'm working all day. you had nine hours to get milk and now i'm being as right? yup should never be confused with yep. yep's okay. yep is friendly. yep is upbeat.he "e" changes to a "u," that person probably wants to put you into a wood chipper. [ laughter ] i want to mention one more. passive aggressive of all the passive aggressive texts. it's this. this response. ha. [ laughter ] ha says i acknowledge what you said was meant to be funny. it wasn't.u imagine in real life you made a joke and someone said ha?
11:51 pm
you can't because no one would ever do that. if they did you would fight them, right?, when texting avoid using periods, yups and ha's. and most importantly, never, ever use your phone to make a call. that you should never do. [ laughter ]t anymore. it's annoying. this is something that also involves our thumbs. twitter is -- they're exploring the possibility of expanding 40 characters per tweet to 10,000 characters per tweet. you know the thing that makes twitter twitter? they might get rid of that. about -- in fact, in other words, twitter is very close to inventing facebook. [ laughter ] i don't like this. this is basided to change the iphone to a washing machine. right? this is interesting. especially for those of you who are mothers to be.lets you play music for your fetus,
