[ light laughter ] i'll give you one piece of good news about the economy going in the toilet. the attitude at my bank is gone now. there used to be such an attitude. like, "sir, sir, i'm sorry, but this is the business line." [ light laughter ] "i'm so sorry, judy." that's all gone. now, the manager comes up like a greeter at walmart. he's like, "oh, we're so glad you're here." he's making a deposit! judy, judy! give him a lap dance. give him a lap dance.

[ laughter ] "what?" "adam, the president is black." [ laughter ] i'm like, "mom, you don't have to whisper. he knows he's black." [ laughter ] and it's kind of unfortunate my mom has that thought, but, as long as it's there, i don't mind exploiting it for my own amusement. [ laughter ] i called her the other day, i go, "ma, did you see the news? in order to qualify for health care, we're all gonna have to play basketball. [ laughter ] can you box out with your hip? can you?" [ laughter ] i am so glad the roots are laughing right now. [ laughter ] i am so glad you guys got that.

[ cheers and applause ] yeah. i love this one. i know i -- did you ever love somebody so much you just -- you want to hit them with a shovel? have you -- [ laughter ] -- experienced that bipolar reaction to another human being? so, i went to buy the ring and the jeweler asked me a question i wasn't prepared for. she said, "what size is her hand?" "girl size, what --" [ light laughter ] "well, it's kind of important, 'cause the diamond should fit in proportion to her hand, so just get an idea." so that night, at dinner, i'm looking at her hand and i'm thinking, "oh, my god.

is the left one bigger? what the hell is she, a fiddler crab? are you -- [ laughter ] great, now we're gonna have giant, left-handed children. 'daddy, why do i swim in a circle?'"

[ laughter ] you know what i ended up doing? when she was asleep, i took a picture of her hand, but i put a ruler in there for scale -- [ laughter ] like it was a crime scene photo. [ laughter ] i brought it back to the jeweler. she's like, "this is so creative of you! [ laughter ] this -- good thinking. good for you." i'm like, "really?" so i'd bought the appropriate ring size for her hand. i was so annoyed. i almost proposed to her like
this, "here, put this on your flipper, you harbor seal." [ laughter and applause ] "i love you."
