“I just want to go up into the stands and cradle you in my arms like a baby”
Sounds good to me!
Moon Shattering News
Apparently during the Cold war, the U.S. had plans to blow up the moon with a nuke. However, Eisenhower wimped out.
Tip/Wag-Gay Rights Pioneers and Gun Dorms
“Folks, if you ask me…you shouldn’t be asking me because I ask the questions around here.”
“Boeing, a name synonymous with aerospace excellence and boner sound effects” has announced that they will deny pension benefits to married same sex couples. Lovely.
Colorado U has made some dorms only for students who carry guns.
“I have to give a wag of my finger at University of Colorado students, because not one signed up to live in the gun dorm. C’mon, this is college. It’s time to get crazy. Do shots, take shots, get shot. Maybe join a fraternity like ‘Ima Poppa Kappa.'”
Top 10 of 2012 & Operation Killing “Killing Kennedy”
The media’s lists of the top stuff of the year are coming fast and furious. Stephen is #5 on Time’s list of nominees for “person of the year”. He’s behind a K-Pop star again and this time it’s not Rain. It’s Kim Jong Un. Oh, no sorry. He is #1. #4, right in front of Stephen is someone named Psy. (Does his last name begin with D? Just wondering) It is funny how he’s behind another Korean, two actually.
Then he revealed that Bill O’Reilly’s books are ahead of “America Again”. When BillO was on The Daily Show awhile back he said the next one would be “Killing Colbert”. So Stephen took it out on the O’Reilly shrine under his desk.
NATION! Buy Stephen’s book, if you have to, buy “America Again” again. We can’t let O’Reilly sit on top!
Theoretical physicist Sean Carroll was on to promote his book, “The Particle at the End of the Universe”. Stephen asked him to explan the Higgs Boson particle again. It’s tricky.
You see, the Higgs Boson is um, yeah. He’s right, it really does evaporate. Just buy the book. That’s two books that we should be buying, Nation.
Sign Off-Acceptance Speech
Nice. It’s been awhile since we’ve had a sign off that’s more than just a goodnight.
“I’d like to thank my agent James Dixon, my manager Doreen Lippman, my lawn guy, Jose, my other lawn guy, I’m sorry I keep calling you Jose, but I can’t remember your name. I wanna thank LouDog, blufie, Steve from Blues Clues, the whole gang over at McVicker’s pickles, Amerigo Vespucci without whom, none of this would’ve been possible…Oh my god, they’re playing me off. OH! and my beautiful wife and kids, I’m sorry I keep calling you Jose, but I can’t remember your names. GOODNIGHT!”
