"Justice David Souter is resigning. He's described as a loner who's against marriage. It's like I have a twin. People are wondering whether Obama will pick a man or a woman.

Craig asked guest Diego Luna who was the better kisser, Sean Penn in 'Milk' or Gael Garcia Bernal in 'Y tu mama tambien.' Diego said, "Tom Hanks, but that was behind the camera every morning."

May 7

Jon Stewart: "Gaywatch: Maine legalized gay marriage. It's a shame Bartles and James didn't live to see this. Now in New England Rhode Island is the only state in which you can't get there from queer. And the District of Columbia City Council unanimously passed gay marriage, except for Marion Berry, shown here smoking crack in a hotel room with a woman not his wife. He said he voted no because he's a moral man. Ordinarily when you find someone so oblivious to his own situation you say, 'What? Is he on crack or something?'"

Jay Leno: "Paula Abdul performed on 'American Idol' last night. Simon Cowell pretends he doesn't like her, but look at this." He showed Paula singing and then cut to Simon's shirt where his nipples were springing out. " "Kirstie Alley has gained back 83 pounds, from eating cake at Brett Favre retirement parties."

Then they talked about Adam's two kids and he told Jay, "You could have had a child if your parents had made a different choice."

Dave Letterman: "Kiefer Sutherland head-butted a guy. The only place you see head-butting these days is on 'The View.'" "Alex Rodriguez is returning to the Yankees tomorrow, so I'll no longer be the most overpriced disappointment in New York." "You can tell the economy's getting a little bit better. I saw Donald Trump today, and that thing on his head was wagging." Dave to guest Norm Macdonald: "You once told me watching the birth of your son was the most exciting moment of your life. Until what?" Norm: "I tried crystal meth." Dave: "No, you said until you went hang-gliding." Norm: "oh yeah."

Jimmy Fallon: "A Saudi Arabian beauty pageant opens next week, very controversial. Some of the contestants show way too much eye."

Craig Ferguson: "Manny Ramirez of the Dodgers tested positive for a drug used for sexual enhancement. Evidently he couldn't get to third base on his own." "I think it's OK to have similar shows, like 'Wife Swap' and 'Trading Places,' or like 'The View' and 'When Animals Attack.'" "I tried to launch my own fashion line, but no one was interested in Craig's Assless Casuals."

"My Name Is Earl:" Patty the daytime hooker was telling Geraldo about Ernie the bar owner who'd disappeared: "Ernie was a gentleman. Once I was performing a sexual act on him and it started to rain, so he pulled out his shirt and held it over me so my hair wouldn't get wet. I felt a little bit like a Princess."

"30 Rock:" Jack finds out that his father is a man played by Alan Alda. As soon as Jack tells him he's his son the man hugs him with joy, because, "I need a kidney."

May 8

Dave Letterman: "You spend $200,000 to put your kid through college so he can listen to a commencement address by Joe the Plumber. My speaker's message was never to register to vote, because you'd just get called up for jury duty." "For the new 'Star Trek' movie the Hello Deli next door has set the meat loaf to 'stun.' And the Statue of Liberty has pointy ears." "On this date in 2181 B.C. the chair was introduced. I'm sorry, that was Cher." "Mother's Day is Sunday. I haven't talked to my mother in three months. Thank God for caller i.d. Every year Mom tells me the things she could have done if I hadn't come along."
Top 10 Things You Don't Want to Hear from Your Mom:
I don't have a favorite child, but I do have a least favorite
Could you make my Mother's Day gift out to "cash"?
I'm not angry at the way you turned out, I'm just disappointed.
Get off my property or I'll call the cops.
You were so much cuter when we dressed you as a girl.
Don't just marry the first girl you live with for twenty-three years.
Why can't you have a show at ten o'clock?

Jay Leno: "So many athletes are failing, maybe those drug tests are just too hard." "John Edwards says he and his wife are getting to a better place. Actually she's getting a better place, and he's moving into a much smaller place." "The panic alarm in Cher's mansion went off by mistake. Within three minutes fifteen plastic surgeons had shown up." "The octomom says she'll have no more kids. That's closing the barn door after the fourteen horses have escaped." "Did you read about the first double hand transplant. Afterwards if you touch yourself with those hands, are you gay?" To guest Jamie Lee Curtis: "So tell me about your dance. Is it lap or pole?"

Jimmy Kimmel: "The best Mother's Day gift you can give Mom is to move out of her basement. The octomom's kids chipped in and got her a tie. For her tubes. President Obama is giving Michelle that Somali pirate." "We can now get in the Statue of Liberty's crown again. She lost her crown for posing topless."

Jimmy Fallon: "Sunday is Mother's Day, or as the octomom calls it, Christmas." "The Statue of Liberty's crown is open again. Now you can touch Air Force One as it flies by." "One of the last 'Wizard of Oz' munchkins died, just short of his 90th birthday." "Dolly Parton was awarded an honorary degree, a Ph-double-D." Guest Joan Rivers bitched about the cheap gift she found in the green room: "I'll give it to some poor blind person." "When people visit my house for dinner and ask if they can help with anything I always say, 'Could you change Grandma?'"

Craig Ferguson: "There should be a reality show of Jedi fans vs. Trekkies. It'd be 'America's Top Virgin.'"

Joe McHale on "The Soup" showed a clip of the show where they put a bully in the ring with a professional fighter to teach him a lesson. The bully threw up. Joel: "Careful, bully, professional fighters can smell fear." Another reality show had some heavy ladies fighting over car keys. Joel: "Forget it, ladies. All of you could stand to walk someplace."

Christian Finnegan on Comedy Central: "Tonight I want us to share something exciting and real, and then pretend it never happened." "I'm married. Sorry, fellows. The minute I saw her I said, 'This is the woman I want to spend the next four to seven years with.'" "Chihuahuas make you question both evolution AND intelligent design. They make no sense either way. You can skip through a dandelion field licking a penis-shaped lollipop and not feel a third as gay as waking up to find you're spooning a chihuahua." "I saw a 75-year-old man wearing a tee that read, 'Certified Muff Diver.' I could see him getting certified. He got his learner's permit, for six months could only do it in the presence of an adult. Then he had to pass his orals."

Jon Stewart introduced a new segment about Cheney: "Excuse Me, Your Dick Is Out."

Dave Letterman: "To me Mother's Day is just a drill, something to get through before FATHER'S DAY! I took Mom out to lunch, and before the end of the meal she went nuts and head-butted the waiter." "Price of a stamp is going up. It's outrageous. I was so upset when I heard about it I head-butted my mailman. On the other hand I hope it'll cut down on my hate mail." "President Obama was so funny at the White House Correspondents Dinner that NBC has offered him the 10 pm spot. After the speech Obama was all excited, and he head-butted Rush Limbaugh." "Manny Ramirez tested positive for a female fertility drug, but good news, he's expecting twins." "The octomom went to the doctor and had a thing done, and now she can't have any more kids. I thought, well, they nipped that in the bud. And then she head-butted the doctor. The octomom's done at 14, so if Angelina Jolie stays healthy she has a shot at the record." "Joan Rivers won 'Celebrity Apprentice' and got $250,000 for her favorite charity, Facelifts on Wheels. There was a catfight between Joan and the other finalist, and it got so bad that thing on Donald Trump's head arched its back and hissed. And then Trump had to head-butt it." "They've opened up the Statue of Liberty's crown again, but only 250 visitors a day will be allowed inside. It's the same rule as Madonna."

Jay Leno: "Obama did so well with his funny speech that the network's going to give him 9:00." "Our Governor wants to legalize marijuana. His slogan is 'Yes We Cannabis.'"

"A kid in a Pennsylvania Christian college was expelled when it came out that he'd appeared in gay porn to earn tuition money. He fondled Peter to pay Paul." "Kids are climbing out of their parents' basements to see the new 'Star Trek.' Many are calling in sick with so-called 'Star Trek' flu. One good thing, it's not sexually transmitted." Headlines: An invitation to a "Wedding Reversal Dinner."

Jimmy Fallon: "Joan Rivers accused her 'Celebrity Apprentice' rival of being two-faced, which is still eight fewer than Joan." "Amy Winehouse had to cancel an outdoor gig because of rain. Usually she has to cancel due to snow."

Craig Ferguson: "I went to a silent art auction where you see a piece you like and you write down your name and how much you bid. By the end of the evening Conan O'Brien had bought a lot of art." Guest Henry Winkler revealed he's a car thief. "You don't just get a car. You also get all the change in the cupholder, and if you're lucky, a free baby." Guest Steven Wright: "The guy who posed for this picture had wooden legs but real feet." "I went fishing once with Salvador Dali. He was using a dotted line, caught every other fish." "These aren't my clothes. It's what I get for just grabbing the first bag off the carousel."

May 12

Dave Letterman: "The oldest woman in the world, 130 years old, passed away. She's survived by her husband, Ashton Kutcher. And I guess that now moves Katie Couric up to the top of the list." "So Donald Trump is going through the naked pictures of Miss California, and that thing on his head is panting. Three years ago, Miss USA drinking. This year, naked photographs. Why can't we have both?" "President Obama was hilarious at the White House Correspondents Dinner, and I found it very annoying. I sure as hell couldn't do his job, so why doesn't he leave mine alone? Joe Biden was funny too. Not shoot-your-buddy-in-the-face funny, but still pretty good. Dick Cheney said Obama went too far. Too far like in waterboarding a guy 183 times?" "A stripper says she and another woman had a 3-way with Michael Phelps. What's surprising is that he only got the bronze."

Jay Leno: "Miss California is keeping her crown. Whew, we are no longer rudderless. She says she's a model and a Christian. Is that the right order? About the nude pictures she said the wind blew her top. She didn't notice this gale-force wind, blowing in one ear and out the other?" "John Edwards' wife has a new book, and he has one too, 'Cheating for Dummies.'" "A priest has admitted he slept with a woman for two years. A woman! The Vatican has booked him on 'The Today Show,' 'The View,' etc." "A mailwoman was arrested for selling meth along her route. Authorities became suspicious when her mail was being delivered correctly and on time." "Japan is using a robot as a substitute teacher." [Showed clip of robot having sex with a student.] " "Manny Ramirez was suspended for using a female fertility drug. We call it a suspension. He calls it maternity leave." Guest Dennis Miller on Obama chastising Joe Biden: "Can you tear someone who is one a new one?"

Jimmy Kimmel: "Donald Trump says Miss California can keep her crown. And who better to judge what someone can wear on their head? And can you blame her for being against gay marriage? Even Obama isn't for it. And Trump believes in serial marriage to progressively younger women."

Jimmy Fallon: "On 'The Simpsons' 20th anniversary baby Maggie spoke her first complete sentence. Hell, Paula Abdul is 46, and she still hasn't." "Shirley Jones says she may pose nude for 'Playboy' at age 75. She says she wants to let it all hang down."

Craig Ferguson: "Miss California blamed her topless photos on the wind. I know, the wind often blows my pants right off. People are still upset about her views on gay marriage. Why? Who cares about the opinion of someone whose main talent is looking good in a bikini? Something we have in common."

May 13

Jon Stewart: Title of Pope's Middle East trip report: "Roadus Triptum: Benny and the Jews." Jon: "Israel gave the Pope a sheaf of a type of wheat named in his honor. He said, 'You know my house is gold, don't you? Micheleangelo was my decorator. Thanks for the wheat.' The Pope used a Yiddish phrase in his speech, and a rabbi complained it wasn't the right Yiddish phrase. So now he's accused of being antisemantic? He did make the occasional Pope bloopers, or Ploopers."

Stephen Colbert: "The government has a new plan for health care. I hope it's sneaking patients across the border into Canada."

Jay Leno: "Whew, stock prices are falling like Miss California's top. The Miss USA contract says if you've posed nude or topless you lose your crown. That's the same reason I lost this job." Jay showed a clip of Miss California's press conference in which she said she didn't know who leaked the racy photos. Then we saw Jay and bandleader Kevin in the audience bumping fists. "The Saudi Arabia beauty contest also had a topless scandal. You could see her whole forehead." "Our Governor wants to legalize marijuana. He calls it 'change we can breathe in.'" "A Catholic priest in Miami has admitted he had a three-year affair. How does a priest hit on a woman? 'Hey, baby, how'd you like to give up something for Lent?'" "Shirley Jones, the mother on the 'Partridge Family,' says she wants to pose nude for 'Playboy' at 75. Come on, isn't Danny Bonaduce messed up enough?" John McCain's 97-year-old mother was a guest and said, "John was the sweetest child ever." Jay: "What happened?"

Jimmy Fallon: "Over 160,000 Indians set the world record for biggest choir, and also, inadvertently, the record for largest gathering of tech support." "Harrison Ford proposed to Calista Flockhart. He got down on one knee and slipped the ring around her waist."

Craig Ferguson: "Miss California turned 22 today, even though her boobies are only 6 months." "The White House had a poetry slam. One guy got up there and rambled on and made no sense. Then Joe Biden sat down, and they had a poetry slam. In Del Ray, Florida, I was in this coffeehouse, and all of a sudden they had this lesbian poetry slam, and it was fabulous! I think I may be a lesbian." "If this show doesn't put you to sleep I wish you luck with your crystal meth addiction." Guest Paula Poundstone: "Raising three kids makes me have sympathy for Joan Crawford. My guess is she said, 'No more wire hangers,' several times nicely first."

Dave Letterman: "The Pope has appointed a new Vice Pope to take care of Rome while he's in the Middle East." Dave showed a picture of Dick Cheney in robes saying, "Let's waterboard some heretics!" Guest Robin Williams had open-heart surgery where they installed a cow valve. "The grazing is great, and I give a great pint of cream. The only trouble with the new valve is that if somebody uses the remote you fart."

Jimmy Kimmel: "When 'American Idol' is finally over do you feel like a kidnap victim who's just been released?" "The FDA says General Mills has to quit advertising that Cheerios lowers your cholesterol and increases your penis size."

May 14

Dave Letterman: "Last night was the big 'Lost' season finale. A guy finds one of those GPS things. It's all over. They're found." "The Feds have been going through Bernie Madoff's credit card receipts. They found that in one week he spent $100.000 at a bait store. Sure, that's how he lured the investors." "A guy took off all his clothes and ran across the field at the old Shea Stadium and slid into second base. I was watching at home and yelled, 'Get some help, Regis!'" "Does the name Evil Dick Cheney ring a bell? He's in New York on his Don't Say I Didn't Warn You tour. He was in a cab, and it turned out the driver was somebody he'd waterboarded." "Scientists now say French kissing can lead to sexually transmitted disease. I found a way to stop French kissing. It's worked for me. Get married." "Astronauts just changed cameras on the Hubble Telescope, the most powerful telescope in history. Yet even it can't see how Larry King stays on the air." "A stripper, and you know how reliable they are, says she and another stripper had a three-way with Michael Phelps. My goodness, there's your freestyle event right there." "A guy in Michigan is tipping strippers with phony $10 bills. You remember we used to tip cows. Now we're tipping strippers. He said, 'Well, hell, they've all got phony breasts.'"

Jon Stewart: "President Obama has changed his mind and is blocking release of torture photos. [Pulls out a stack.] What am I going to do with all these picture frames?" The segment was titled "Moral Kombat."

Jay Leno: "Miss California was photographed topless but can keep her crown. Let's hope Queen Elizabeth doesn't hear about this." "Pfizer is giving free Viagra to the unemployed. It's a stimulus package to point these guys in the right direction." "A man rented a porn DVD and on it saw his wife with his carpenter friend. He divorced his wife and stabbed the carpenter for nailing her."

My cable went out just after midnight, so I missed Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and Craig Ferguson."

May 15

Dave Letterman: "It was tough when I went to school. In those days the teachers wouldn't have sex with you." "You can tell it's almost summer. You know that thing on Donald Trump's head? I saw it catch a frisbee." "It's the anniversary of the invention of the jackhammer. We use it here in New York to make our famous potholes. There's one on 8th Avenue so big it has its own gift shop." "Joe Biden was funny at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Not shoot-your-buddy-in-the-face funny, but still pretty funny." "Dick Cheney went to see 'Angels & Demons' and kept screaming, 'Go, demons!' Cheney says rush Limbaugh is more of a Republican than Colin Powell. Yeah, about three hundred pounds more."
