Jay Leno: "Steven Slater needs a good reason he shouldn't go to prison. He's a male flight attendant. They don't do well in prison." "Mexican drug lord El Grande has been arrested, along with his henchmen, Tall and Venti." "A man in Switzerland who was surrounded by a hundred policemen escaped. He used every tool on his Swiss Army Knife." "Kim Kardashian got Botox. When I think of her I don't think Botox. Buttox, yes."

Jimmy Kimmel: "Crime in the U.S. is down 5%. See what happens when you put Lindsay Lohan in jail?" "George Michael has been sentenced to 8 weeks in jail for running his car into a photo shop. Last year he ran into 3 parked cars. That's why his old band was called Wham. In jail he'll be surrounded by nothing but men, working out, showering. He'll be miserable." Guest Kathy Griffin: "My fans are called Griffters or Kath-eters."

Jimmy Fallon: "President Obama is going to release a fun, easy-to-read children’s book this November. Yeah, it’s for ages 'Biden and up.' It's based on 'The Little Engine that Could.' But instead of "I think I can. I think I can,' his goes, 'I thought I could. I thought I could.'" "Penelope Cruz & Javier Bardem are expecting a baby! They said they don't care if it's a boy or a girl, as long as it's sexy." "The Vatican Library is reopening after renovations. It's a place to use the Vatican's favorite word, 'Shh!'" "Asian American students have the highest academic scores. Second are the students who sit directly behind them."

Craig Ferguson: "George Michael has been sentenced to 8 weeks in jail. He's appealing for a longer sentence." "Australian scientists have discovered that bats have regional accents. I've always wondered. The fastest-chirping bats are in Central Australia. The noisiest are in South Australia, and the quietest bats are in the Dodgers' lineup. If you have a bat in your house you should open all the doors and windows until it leaves. I try that with Regis, but it doesn't work."

Page 4 - I s it because Johnny Mathis is the polar opposite of me? A man whose "Greatest Hits" album was on the "Billboard" charts for 490 consecutive weeks. Versus me, a cult filmmaker whose core audience, no matter how much I've crossed over, consists of minorities who can't even fit in with their own minorities.

10 - Johnny Mathis's role model? "Lena Horne," he chuckles. "Some reviewer even  said I stole everything but her gown." I know what he means; I have been copying Margaret Hamilton my whole life, and I am proud to admit it. The Wicked Witch of the West ,,,

12 [At Roddy McDowell's]: Then I turned around and there was an elderly couple dressed in full-fringed cowboy outfits with holster and guns. "Oh, John," Roddy asked casually, "do you know Roy Rogers and Dale Evans?" "No," I stammered, almost speechless. How could I? I live in Baltimore.

Page 15 - Johnny Mathis is impossible to parody today; no one makes fun of him. No drag kings ever "do" Johnny Mathis.  Whenever they have John Waters look-alike contests at the colleges where i appear, lesbians win!

29 - Will Johnny Mathis's estate deny the commercial use of his hits the way Johnny Cash's did when Preparation H tried to license "Ring of Fire" for hemorrhoid commercials? Or will they exploit his publishing copyright the way Elvis's heirs did when they allowed "Viva Las Vegas" to be resung as "Viva Viagra" for a TV commercial?

You're 200 years old, Mexico, and you still look great. Your maracas are still perky."

Page 36 - Yes, Tennessee Williams was my childhood friend. I yearned for a bad influence and Tennessee was one in the best sense of the word: joyous, alarming, sexually confusing, and dangerously funny.

No, there was another world that Tennessee Williams knew about, a universe filled with special people who didn't want to be part of this dreary conformist life that I was told I had to join.
Years later Tennessee Williams saved my life again. The first time I went to a gay bar I was seventeen years old. It was called the Hut and it was in Washington, D.C. Some referred to it as the "Chicken Hut" and it was filled with early-1960s gay men in fluffy sweaters who cruised one another by calling table-to-table on phones provided by the bar. "I may be queer but I ain't this," I remember thinking. Still reading everything Tennessee Williams wrote, I knew he would understand my dilemma. Tennessee never seemed to fit the gay stereotype even then, and sexual ambiguity and turmoil were always made appealing and exciting in his work.

Tennessee Williams wasn't a gay cliche, so I had the confidence to try to not be one myself. Gay was not enough.

(All but Leno, Fallon & Ferguson in reruns)

Strangie to Jay Leno: "Finding a bargain can give the same excitement as sex. That's true. Women can shop all day and never be satisfied. Men, two minutes and they're out of there."

Jay Leno: "Parents are going to cut back on Halloween costume expense this year by just taping cell phones to their kids' ankles and sending them out as Lindsay Lohan, who, by the way, just tested positive for Paris Hilton's gum."

And I break up with a girl the old fashioned way. I sleep with her sister." Woman: "My husband gets me to have sex by saying it's a workout, but he's not losing weight. Am I being duped?" Jay: "Yes. No workout lasts only two minutes." Jim: "Congratulations, Jay. You've doubled your time." Guest Joel McHale about Betty White being on "Community:" "She was very sensual in her sex scenes with me."

Jimmy Fallon: "Ryan Seacrest will announce the three new 'American Idol' judges. Then he'll announce the three remaining viewers." "A survey found only 25% of women are satisfied with their sex life. Although up to half those women may have faked their answer." "NY Gov. candidate Carl Paladino said Manhattan has smug, self-important, pampered elitists. God, he sounds just like my butler." "Joaquin Phoenix revealed his two years of acting crazy was just performance art for a movie. Mel Gibson said, 'Uh, yeah, me too.'"

John talks about and interviews his role models.

Page 45 - I have a really good friend who was convicted of killing two innocent people when she was nineteen years old on a horrible night of cult madness. Her name is Leslie Van Houten and I think you would like her as much as I do. She was one of those notorious "Manson girls" who shaved their heads, carved X's in their foreheads, and laughed, joked, and sang their way through the courthouse straight to death row without the slightest trace of remorse forty years ago. Leslie is hardly a Manson girl today. Sixty years old, she looks back from prison on her involvement in the LaBianca murders (the night after the Tate massacre) in utter horror, shame and guilt and takes full responsibility for her part in the crimes. I think it's time to parole her.

47 - Later, after Manson was arrested, I drove across the country for the first time in my life to Los Angeles for the California premiere of "Multiple Maniacs," and the next day began attending the insane LSD medial circus Manson trial, which I've never really gotten over.

Monday, September 20

Strangie to Stephen Colbert: "A man with no arms and no legs has swum the English Channel. Boy, is he going to be pissed when he hears about the Chunnel train."

Jon Stewart: See rallytorestoresanity.com or follow on Twitter @rally4sanity "Working Stiffed:" Assif Mondvi interviewed the pickets who were picketing Wal-Mart for paying minimum wage with no benefits and giving no say in hours of work. It turned out the pickets had been hired by the union from a temp agency and were receiving minimum wage with no benefits, and had had their hours arbitrarily reduced. The union rep had said, "A lot of companies are imitating Wal-Mart." Assif: "Is one of those companies your union?"

Chelsea Handler: Heather "Long Boobs" McDonald: "Paris and Lindsay should do a show 'Keeping Up with Probation.'"

Stephen Colbert: "By the Dawn's Early Fright:" Stephen's having a March to Keep Fear Alive in D.C. 10/30/10. On Tea Partier Christine O'Donnell: "She believes masturbation is adultery, and she's single, guys. It's awful. People like Bill Maher are smearing her with words that she said." Showed clip of her on Maher's show saying she'd dabbled in witchcraft. "So she was a little Beelzebubcurious. I'm sure she's not a witch. We'll have her on the show, bind her hands and feet and throw her in a tank of water and see."

David Letterman: "'Dancing with the Stars' is back. I've invited a few friends to come over and watch and try to figure out who the stars are." "Turns out Christine O'Donnell, who's against masturbation, is a practicing witch. She'll be the first one in Washington since Barbara Bush. No, Mrs. Bush is a lovely woman, and the Quaker Oats guy. Christine looks a lot like Sarah Palin, so more work for Tina Fey."

Jay Leno: "Christine O'Donnell is against masturbation. She's out of touch with voters who are in touch with themselves. On Bill Maher's show she admitted dabbling in witchcraft. So she's pro dabbling, anti diddling. Sarah Palin had better watch out. Christine's younger, hotter and crazier." "When the Pope and the Queen of England met they both blurted out the same thing: 'Nice hat.'" Headlines: Brochure: "Proceeds will be used to cripple children." "Trail of Cheetos leads to snack thief." "Man Stole Sex Offender's Identity." Grocery ad: "Parkay Spread Maxi-Pads." Jay: "It's not butter!" Cleaning service ad: "Our maids are licensed, boned and insured."

Jimmy Kimmel: "On 'Dancing with the Stars,' hopefully The Situation will get Bristol Palin pregnant. Every year I pick the winner, and I'm usually right. They call me Notradancemus. Margaret Cho is the 1st bisexual contestant since Adam Carolla in 1997." "Christine O'Donnell has limited her base to Satanists who oppose masturbation." "Lindsay Lohan failed another drug test. Maybe that's what she meant by 'being more positive.'"

Jimmy Fallon: "Lindsay Lohan is probably going to be sentenced to 30 days in jail. That could be like 6 days in jail." "Traffic was tied up in NY for the UN General Assembly. You couldn't get anywhere or do anything. It was like being in the UN." "Facebook was coming out with a cell phone, but you could only call friends you barely remembered from high school. Actually Facebook denied the rumor it made a phone. To avoid weirdness, they just accepted the rumor, then deleted it a few days later."

Craig Ferguson: "Christine O'Donnell is against masturbation, gay rights and all the other things I hold dear. And she's probably a witch. Sarah Palin says the media is trying to destroy Christine. Nonsense. If that were true we'd just toss water on her." "'Hawaii Five-O' premiered tonight. How does CBS come up with these brilliant fresh ideas? Look at this promo picture. The guys get bulletproof vests and the lady gets a little waistcoat." "I've never been to Brazil, but I've enjoyed many of your fine products, like coffee and transvestites." Guest: "You perk up with any mention of sex, breasts, penises, transvestites. Where would you be without that?" Craig: "Primetime."

John talks about and interviews his role models.

John became friends with convicted Manson family killer Leslie Van Houten.

Page 48 - [A later Manson family trial] When about fifteen of the Manson Family were brought into court, handcuffed and chained together, women on one side and men on the other, many with their heads shaved, the atmosphere was electric with twisted evil beauty.

49 - Then I went deeper into the Manson flame and started visiting Charles "Tex" Watson in prison.

52 - In 1972, Leslie's death sentence (and those of her codefendants) had been abolished by the California State Supreme Court and, like that of all death penalty prisoners at the time, her sentence had been changed to life in prison. Not life without parole.

56 - I have now visited Leslie in the same visiting room in the California Institute for Women in Frontera, California (without freeway traffic problems about an hour's drive east of Hollywood), for the last 24 years.

Tuesday, September 21

Strangie to Jay Leno: "Tiger Woods' #1 mistress bought a NYC condo for $2 million. She's going to fix it up and rent it out. Same thing she did with her body."

Jon Stewart: In a town hall meeting a guy asked President Obama when he was going to "stop whacking the Wall Street pinata." Jon: "When the candy comes out?" "Our Rally for Sanity is not going to be a masturbation contest." Larry Wilmore: "Well, if you don't want one to break out you'd better plan something." Jon: "Betty White was on our show. She was charming, wonderful. I cut to commercial, and she snarled, 'I'll cut you, Jon.'" "Our new book 'Earth: The Book' is out, and I give you permission to buy and burn as many copies as you want."


Chelsea Handler: "I'm going to give you a pop quiz. Take out a #2 pencil and a pad, one without wings, please." "'Jersey Shore's J. Woww has been offered $400,000 to pose nude for 'Playboy.' They want to see the whole Jersey shore." Mo Mandel: "They could save their money by paying any one of 40 guys in New Jersey $3 for their cell phone photos of her."

Stephen Colbert: "Craigslust: Craigslist has shut down its adult services section. Doesn't affect me. I only went there for the pristine layout anyway." "Come to D.C. October 30 for our March to Keep Fear Alive. And we may even bring some fears back from the dead."

David Letterman: "I know it's autumn because my Mom called Jay Leno and reminded him to take a sweater." "On 'Dancing with the Stars' Bristol Palin did the cha-cha to 'Mama Told Me Not to Come.' She scored 18 out of 30 points, same as her mama did in the debates." "Economists are saying the recession is over. Yep, they're popping champagne corks down at the unemployment office." Then Tony Mendez screwed up the cue cards. "Tony, maybe you'd better go over to the unemployment office and get some champagne." "Lindsay Lohan failed a drug test, and this could end her career. I thought getting busted was her career." "And Paris Hilton pled guilty to having cocaine and has to do community service. I think I saw her doing that on the internet."

Jay Leno: "Iran's President
Mahmoud Ahmadinenutjob says the future belongs to Iran. Then he left to go to a stoning." "It was a tough game for Brett Favre. He fumbled and then lost his reading glasses and his dentures." "Have you seen the movie 'Devil.' or as Christine O'Donnell calls it 'Roots.' She says she dabbled in witchcraft but never joined a coven. What does she think Congress is? She's against masturbation, even wants to outlaw beef jerky." "More people are using solar energy. That's because they're living outdoors." "A man was arrested for masturbating in Wal-Mart. The bad part is, he was the greeter. He was a little too excited to see people.

Jimmy Kimmel: "The 1st celebrity has been killed off 'Dancing with the Stars,' or perhaps I should say killed Hoff. It's just Hoffal. Have they no sense of comedy? Bristol Palin got 18 points out of 30. Her mother said she'd be in the audience, but she wasn't. It's not like her to commit to something and then back out." "J. Lo is getting $12 million to be a judge on 'American Idol.' This is the woman who read the script of 'Maid in Manhattan' and thought it would be a good movie." "A new reality show called 'Bridal Plasty' will give brides plastic surgery, including a sex change to freak out the groom. I hear they're doing the same thing for fetuses on 'Womb for Improvement.'" "Christine O'Donnell is against masturbation and dabbled in witchcraft. Now there's a tape of her saying scientists have put human brains in mice. I bet she was just stoned and saw 'Ratatuille.'"

Jimmy Fallon: "Bristol Palin was on 'Dancing with the Star.' Her mother Sarah Palin wasn't there in person, but she could see it from her house." "An aide had to step in when President Obama paid a street vendor only $1 for 4 apples. It was awkward, but China said, 'Oh, you get used to it.'" "Jerry Garcia's old house is on the market for $4 million. It's a great house but the doorbell ring is 20 minutes long." "North Korea's Kim Jong Il is expected to name his successor next week. Whoever it is will have some big women's sunglasses to fill." "Christine O'Donnell says if one more person accuses her of witchcraft she'll sue them. 'And their little dog too!'" "A big flaw on Twitter redirected users to porn sites. Or as most users put it, 'There's a great new feature on Twitter.'"

Craig Ferguson: "The Senate blocked repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell. Gays are so mad at the Senators they've threatened to stop having sex with them." "There's a new opera about Bill Clinton. I don't know how it ends, but I bet it isn't with the fat lady singing." "When I go to Hawaii I always make sure to bring my scuba gear, like when I go to Arizona I always bring my papers. I wish this show was shot in Hawaii so I could wear a coconut bra."

"Role Models" by John Waters

John talks about and interviews his role models.

Page 60 - My parents never blamed the crowd I ran with; they knew I was the bad egg.

106 - I can't remember much about what happened after the party except driving to the hotel in the backseat of my limo with a gang of crazy, young, drunk street models who were hanging their heads out the windows and howling at the moon before being dropped off.

108 - ... but today I'm dressing for the family so I'd better be careful. Pink shoes and Dad are a fight waiting to happen.

111 - Young bad boys don't want to be bikers anymore. They want to be black.

114 - And since I love minorities and Provincetown is a gay fishing village, I hang out in the two straight bars.

Strangie to David Letterman: "Paris Hilton was kept out of Japan. She couldn't make it through the mental detector."

Chelsea Handler: "There are rumors that Ashton cheated on Demi. If they split up. where will Bruce Willis go for a weird-ass Christmas?" "Because of her drug conviction Paris Hilton was denied entry to Japan, so now Hello Kitty is the only over-publicized pussy in that country."

Stephen Colbert: "First Do No Farm: Is agriculture something Americans will do? I don't know. Do cornfields have wi-fi?" "Media vultures are circling Christine O'Donnell the way she used to circle anyone with a video camera."

David Letterman: "Christine O'Donnell said she once had a date on a Satanic altar, but who hasn't? Then they went to a Motel 666." "The Hoff was voted off 'Dancing with the Stars.' He danced like he was taking a sobriety test. I think he was confused. He kept trying to buy a vowel." "On the premiere of 'Hawaii Five-0' the cops looked around and came up with Obama's birth certificate." "Economists say the recession is over. Is it really over, or is the economy just pulling a Leno?" "The world's oldest man turned 114 today. If you want to buy him a present, hurry. He lives at home with his parents." "Those Chilean miners are still trapped, like you people." Dave showed a clip of the miners putting on an amateur production of "Oklahoma."

Jay Leno: "Well, it's Tokyo 1, Paris Hilton 0. She was detained for 6 hours for questioning, which was 5 hours longer that she was detained for the actual drug bust." "The economy's so bad Where's Waldo is hiding from his creditors." "Delaware's Christine O'Donnell is against masturbation, so the hand lotion companies are supporting her opponent." "Beer companies are opposing legalization of marijuana. Oddly, both sides have the same slogan: 'This Bud's for You.'" "About 1 in 6 newlyweds met online. The other 5 are missing, presumed dead." "A high school bowling instructor was arrested for having sex with a female student. He's being charged under a tough 3 strikes law." "'Dancing with the Stars' booted off the Hoff. He's a pretty bad dancer. He should stick to bad acting." Jay put his fake questions in a taped interview with Christine O'Donnell: "I understand that in a Satanic ritual you even disemboweled a classmate." Christine: "Who hasn't done some questionable things in high school?"

Jimmy Kimmel: "One of the new 'American Idol' judges is Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. I don't see him making it past the Senate confirmation hearing." "How can Japan deny entry to Paris Hilton, who's done nothing but welcome it?" "An ingredient in marine paint is making snails grow penises on their foreheads. Could be the biggest thing to hit the pharmaceutical industry since Viagra. 'Give yourself a head start.'"

Jimmy Fallon: "The Hoff was voted off 'Dancing with the Stars,' but he's used to people telling him to get off the floor." "Spencer Pratt posted a video of himself shaving off his beard. Warning: if you watch it, you can never get that time back." "On Nov. 9 Susan Boyle releases her new album 'The Gift.' The 1st track is 'Keep the Receipt.'" "Plane tix on Thanksgiving cost 10% more this year. But lying to your relatives & saying you're too sick to make it? Still free."

Page 116 - I have a place in San Francisco, too. My filth empire keeps expanding and I'm so happy to once again spend time in the first city where my films caught on outside of Baltimore, way before New York. I live in a great apartment on Nob Hill, just five blocks from where I used to pull over and sleep in my car in 1970.

134 - Lady Zorro had a real rage she brought to the stage, which added a demented hostile sex appeal. An angry stripper with a history of physical and sexual abuse with a great body and the face of a man. Now there's a lethal combination.

146 - Maybe it came from teaching filmmaking to convicts. I mean, what is prison, really, except a good bar without the liquor?

Thursday, September 23

Strangie to David Letterman: "World leaders are assembled at the UN. That's why it's so hard to get a hooker."

Jon Stewart: "International House of Handshakes: The 65th session of the UN was led off by the Secret Ambassador from Kenya, Barack Obama." "The Republicans issued their Pledge to America, supposed to be full of new ideas. It's all the old ideas. It's like we broke up with them, they spent 2 years soul searching, and they said, 'We're still going to try to f**k your sister every chance we get. That's who we are.'"

Chelsea Handler: "On 'American Idol' Steven Tyler can wear Ellen's old wardrobe. There are only 3 judges, because they need room for Steven's lips, J. Lo's ass and Randy's penis."

Stephen Colbert: "Farming really is backbreaking work. And I apologize to the man I ran over with my tractor."

David Letterman: "I was up late last night watching 'Dick Clark's Rocking Autumnal Equinox." "At the UN President Obama spoke on foreign relations and admitted he's dabbled in witchcraft. In Delaware they're running a witch for Congress. She promises to cast a spell on health care. The Republicans claim Obama is not an American, and then they run a witch for Congress." "The Iranian President was on Larry King, who thought he was interviewing Paul Anka."

Jay Leno: "Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinenutjob is here at the UN. He flies to America free, because he's so little he fits into the overhead bin." "Obama's top economic adviser is stepping down. Evidently he was out of bad ideas." "Blockbuster has filed for bankruptcy, so if you rented a video, keep it." "The unemployed are getting money by raising pot. So now we really do have chronic unemployment." "The economy's so bad the Brawny Paper Towel guy has gone back to gay porn." "A waitress flew from Washington to Chicago to have sex with Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. I can't get the waitress to bring me a second cup of coffee." "What do UCLA, a Mensa meeting and Japan have in common? They're all places Paris Hilton can't get into. Japan wouldn't let her in. So, counting math, that's two areas in which Japan is smarter that we are." "The world's oldest man spent his 114th birthday throwing passes to his Viking teammates." "That woman who claimed someone threw acid on her admitted she threw it on herself. She ruined her own face, just like Heidi Montag." "Elderly men whose wives have died are more likely to get STDs, to which their dead wives say, 'Good!'"

Jimmy Kimmel: "It's the Feast of St. Gennaro is going on her in LA. All the profit goes to charity, and all the food goes to obesity." "Blockbuster has had to file for bankruptcy because no one would rewind." "Bedbugs are back in a big way. I always thought bedbugs were imaginary, like Eskimos. But they're real, and, like Eskimos, they bite." "The Octomom can't pay her mortgage. Who knew you could get a mortgage on a shoe?" So Jimmy had her and all her kids working on his show. "'Sesame Street' has pulled a video of Katy Perry singing with Elmo because her outfit was too skimpy. Meanwhile, most of the Muppets are are totally naked all the time."

Jimmy Fallon: "Sarah Palin announced she'll run for President if no one else steps up. Which is why everyone in America announced they're running." "Justin Bieber made his acting debut on “CSI.” In the episode, Justin is forced to investigate a very suspicious arrival—pubes." "J. Lo is getting $12 million on 'American Idol,' and Steven Tyler is getting $18 million, while Randy gets to sit next to them." "On 'Sesame Street' Katy Perry's dress was so sexy Elmo started tickling himself." "Scientists have discovered a dinosaur with many horns, the horniest dinosaur ever. Larry King said, 'Well, I had a good run.'"

Craig Ferguson: "Bruce Springsteen is 61, so he's having to update some of his songs, like 'Baby, We Were Born to Shuffle.'" "Because of lack of visitors the Liberace Museum in Las Vegas is closing. Also the Mel Gibson Museum of Tolerance and the Arizona Museum of Mexican History. Liberace was the Steven Tyler of his day. No, more macho. The Lady Gaga of his day. I go to his museum to get ideas for outfits. There are rumors he may have been gay. In the 1950s Liberace sued a British newspaper for implying he was gay. AND HE WON! That newspaper must have had the worst lawyer in the world. He couldn't even say, 'Exhibit A, Your Honor, Liberace.'"

"30 Rock:" Jack: "The Harry Potter Theme Park is a big hit with both Anglophiles and pedophiles." Writer: "This morning I made love to my wife, and she was still asleep, so I didn't have to be gentle." Jenna: "I realized I'm not necessary. Last time I said that I was in a 3-way with 2 Backstreet Boys."

Friday, September 24
(Stewart & Colbert off, Handler in reruns)

Strangie to Jay Leno: "'You Again' just opened. It's about a group of prisoners greeting Lindsay Lohan."

David Letterman: "It's autumn in New York. The hookers in Times Square, God bless 'em, are wearing tweed and using flannel condoms." "Mayor Bloomberg has outlawed smoking in Central Park. Murder's still OK." "Tom Selleck's in a new cop show. CBS: expect the expected." "Those Chilean miners are stuck down there for months. But think of the overtime they're raking in." "Sarah Palin was interested in running for President, but then she found out it was a 4-year gig."

Jay Leno: "Lindsay Lohan's back in jail. Listen, ask any actress in L.A. It's not easy getting a callback." "'Forbes' has listed the richest Americans. Bill Gate is #1, and Tiger's wife is #2." "Obama has dropped so far in the polls that Muslims are claiming he's a Christian." "A man carried out the first flight in a human-powered plane. Wait till Southwest gets ahold of this." "Facebook had a problem where people couldn't log on. You know what you call Facebook with nobody on it? MySpace." "There's a new bra that doubles as an asthma inhaler. When your wife finds it in the car you can say, 'Honey, that's for emergencies.'"

Jimmy Kimmel: "Lindsay Lohan's gone straight to jail until her next hearing Oct. 22, which gives her almost no time to find a Halloween costume." Jimmy showed Celebrity Avenger Jake Byrd at the Lohan hearing wearing a t-shirt "Linnocent," carrying a sign "Just Say Lo," and yelling, "They're picking on her because she's a ginger who does cocaine."

Jimmy Fallon: "On 'Dancing with the Stars' Bristol Palin is denying that she's dating The Situation. If he visited the Palins he'd have the most normal male name in the household." "Facebook went down yesterday, and I had to walk around in person going, 'Like. Like. It's complicated.'" "Apparently in May Mel Gibson paid his girlfriend $15 million to destroy all tapes. Now he just has to erase the internet, hard drives and everyone's memories." "President Obama will host his 3rd state dinner for Chinese President Hu Jintao. We don't know who'll attend. It depends on Hu's Jintown." "PETA will be celebrating its 30th birthday with a game of Appreciate the Tail on the Donkey."

Craig Ferguson: "Italy is going to stop using those airport scanners that make you look nude after protests from women who don't want you to see their Naples." "Actress Kelly McGillis just married her girlfriend. The star of 'Top Gun' is gay!? And so is Kelly McGillis. It's a joke, lawyers." "'Legend of the Guardians' is out today. Owls in 3-D, bitch! It's like they're diving right at you. If I want that I'll glue a mouse to my forehead. It's from a children's book, but not one of those celebrity ones, like Jay Leno's 'Goodnight, Conan.' Owls have giant heads and little bodies and vomit out furry pellets, just like the cast of 'Desperate Housewives.' The celebrity who looks most like an owl is Larry King. 'Whoston, you're on the air.' The movie of 'Winnie the Pooh' comes out next summer, and I play Owl. I'm glad I didn't get cast as Pooh." Robot sidekick Geoff Peterson: "In your pants!" Craig: "If owls weren't wise we'd be eating buckets of them at KFO."


Saturday, September 25, "Saturday Night Live"

Strangie to New York Governor Paterson: "You've poked so much fun at me for being blind that I forgot I was black."

Host Amy Poehler: "Since leaving 'Saturday Night Live' I've had two beautiful boys: Nick Jonas and Taylor Lautner, to whom I say you're welcome. I also had two babies, and I hope you won't tell them about the beautiful boys." "I'm this close to moving to France, except I don't speak the language and I hate the people."

Seth Meyers: "Can't we leave New Jersey out of this?" NY Gov. Paterson: "That's what the framers of the Constitution should have said."

"Sesame Street" cut Katy Perry's song with Elmo on grounds of cleavage. Katy wore Elmo for "Saturday Night Live."

Opening: Christine O'Donnell masturbates constantly and much more.

Fred Armisen and the real blind NY Governor Paterson

Monday, September 27

Strangie to Stephen Colbert testifying before Congress: "I don't want a tomato picked by a Mexican. I want a tomato picked by an American, sliced by a Venezuelan, served by a Guatemalan, while I'm in a spa being given a Brazilian by a Chilean."

Jon Stewart: "Friday 'comedian' Stephen Colbert ruined Congress." Jon showed clips of Congressmen livid that ten minutes of their time had been wasted by Colbert's actually reasonable testimony on agriculture, and then showed clips of all the other time-wasting Congress had done last week. Clip of Colbert testimony: "I know to some people that's offensive. To some people 'corn packer' is a derogatory term for a gay Iowan, so I'll say 'man husker.'" The Congresspersons sat stony faced. The only laugh came on Stephen's last line: "I trust that when I leave you'll work together for what's good for the country, like you always do." Jon's guest Bill O'Reilly, plugging his book "Pinheads & Patriots." Jon: "I was at Fox News, the Temple of Mordor, to promote my own book, and when I left, all the employees were lined up down the hall pleading, 'Take me with you!'" Jon, "No, I read 'The Bible' quite frequently. I need stuff to scare the kids before bed."

Chelsea Handler: "I've always liked baseball. At my bat mitzvah the rabbi took me to 3rd base." John Caparulo on Bishop Eddie Long: "If you're actively campaigning against gay sex you're probably interested in gay sex." 

Stephen Colbert: "DADT didn't get repealed. The Congressmen thought the issue was too gay." "Because the national media have made so much fun of her, Christine O'Donnell has announced she'll only speak to local media. Luckily I have the 'Delawert Report.'"

David Letterman: "Lindsay Lohan failed another drug test. And this is an area where I thought by now she'd know something." "On this day in 1954 Steve Allen retired from the 'Tonight Show.' And when he retired he stayed retired." "In his book Woodward says Obama is 'distant and unemotional.' It's like I have a twin. Obama lacks the warmth of, oh, say, a Dick Cheney." "A plane landed on one wheel at Kennedy. What's the matter, the Hudson's not good enough anymore? Then the pilot left the plane by grabbing 2 beers and sliding down the chute. The landing gear malfunctioned. Sounds like my wedding night."

Jay Leno: "It was 113 degrees in L.A. today. So hot some women in Beverly Hills almost drank tap water. People were sweating like Bishop Eddie Long at a Boy Scout jamboree." Jay showed a police drawing of a suburban nude intruder, then showed a news clip of a reporter on the street describing the event, and a man who looked exactly like the police drawing drove past the reporter. "At the UN Obama asked other nations to help track down extremists, and they said, 'The Tea Party is your problem.'" "Lindsay Lohan just illustrated our strict policy of 3 strikes and you're out ... on bail." "The NFL is becoming very concerned about concussions, so they're asking Cleveland Browns fans to quit beating their heads against the wall." "A Montana woman beat away a bear attack with a zucchini. She was attacked while she was in bed, and for some reason she had a zucchini right there." Headlines: "Bisexual men discriminated against for not being gay enough." "Take extra precautions with the elderly in heat." Classified ad for an "assettling torch." A man named "Au Fook Yew." Jay: "Can you imagine him being stopped by a cop who says, 'What's your name?'"

Jimmy Kimmel: "It was 113 degrees in L.A. today. It was so hot Matthew McConaughey took his chest off." "Sarah Palin was in the audience of 'Dancing with the Stars.' Her daughter Bristol danced to 'You Can't Hurry Love,' which I thought was a little odd, since she had a baby out of wedlock. Last week she danced to "Mama Told Me Not to Come.'" "The Octomom had a yard sale. I bought this turkey baster for $2. Only used once." "The owner of Segway died when his Segway ran off a cliff. It's like George Foreman grilling himself to death."

Jimmy Fallon: "President Obama supports a longer school year. Sasha and Malia support Sarah Palin." "Paris Hilton settled her suit with Hallmark Cards for using her catchphrase 'That's hot.' Also her catchphrase 'That's not mine. It belongs to a friend.'" "Schedule changes on 18 NY subway lines were so confusing many people gave up and peed in a bathroom."

Craig Ferguson: "It was 113 degrees in L.A., hottest day on record. It was so hot David Beckham was hiring hookers just to blow on him." "Conan O'Brien got bad news today. Max Weinberg, his bandleader and drummer, isn't returning. Worse yet, Jay Leno is taking drumming lessons." "Katy Perry's song with Elmo on 'Sesame Street' was cut because she showed too much cleavage. The show has been getting more adult though. Today 'C' was for 'Colonoscopy.' I don't believe the rumors about Bert & Ernie though, that Oscar isn't the only one who likes it in the can."

"Role Models" by John Waters

John talks about and interviews his role models.

Page 183 - [John played Little Richard's "Lucille" at home]: "The antiques rattled. My parents looked stunned. In one magical moment, every fear of my white family had been laid bare; an uninvited, screaming, flamboyant black man was in the living room. Even Dr. Spock hadn't warned them about this.

185 - [Interviewing Little Richard]: He doesn't look his age ("Lord, when the time comes I'm gonna have a face-lift, jaw lift, eye lift; everything that is falling will be lifted and the things that can't be lifted will be moved!").

196 - We hug. He signs his book to me, "God Always Cares, Little Richard." I think how I used to sign mine "See You In Hell, John Waters." and realize the miles we're apart.

Tuesday, September 28

Strangie to David Letterman: "A study found that women apologize more than men. Not in my house."

Jon Stewart: "Israel has resume settlement construction on the West Bank. So hope of peace survived for 3 weeks." John Oliver suggested building time share units. "Neither side would bomb a house if they're going to be living in it themselves in a few months. What's it going to take, Jon, to put you in a disputed territory?" "Gas Hole:" Aasif Mondvi reported on a shortage of helium. At the end of the show Stephen Colbert invited Jon to his March to Keep Fear Alive Oct. 30, and Jon said he was busy that day. Stephen: "It's never pretty when an old maid plays hard to get."

Stephen Colbert: "Are voters suffering from apathy? I don't care." "I always run on the balls of my feet. That's right, even my feet have balls."

David Letterman: "It was 113 degrees in L.A. Gov. Schwarzenegger, walking on the hot sidewalk, actually scorched his knuckles." It was so hot Sarah Palin was happy to get a chilly reception at 'Dancing with the Stars.'" "When that Delta plane landed on one wheel at Kennedy it was so scary it sobered up the pilots." "Larry King is the new Betty White. He wants to host 'Saturday Night Live.' It's #4 on his bucket list." "New York has the 2 best restrooms in North America. One is in Bryant Park, and the other one is Central Park." "President Obama has written a children's book: 'The One-Term Engine That Could.'" "North Korea's Kim Jong Il is stepping down for Kim Jong Jay." Showed photo of Jay Leno. Guest Jon Stewart on having kids: "The opportunity to ruin someone from scratch." Dave: "Oprah gives her audience trips. The audience leaves here with nothing but a bad taste in their mouths."

Jay Leno: "It's so hot even Republicans are complaining about global warming." "Obama said students can't learn in the current educational environment. Somebody forgot to tell the Asian students." "The UN has appointed a Space Alien Greeter. How does this make Mexicans feel?" "After that scary landing at Kennedy Airport, Delta charged passengers a $25 seat-cleaning fee." "Have you seen that emergency bra. It becomes two emergency respirators. Guys love it. They're safe, and she's topless." "The MacArthur Genius Grants have been awarded, and once again the cast of 'Jersey Shore' have been frozen out." "Lindsay Lohan will be out of rehab in time for Oktoberfest."

Jimmy Kimmel guest Dane Cook had to go straight from shooting a horror comedy to the third date with a girl he really liked, so the make-up people cleaned the fake blood off his face and chest. What he realized when his date took his pants off was that the blood had dripped down and dried on his genitals. So he yelled, "What did you do!?" Dane also said he made a 7-person seesaw.

Jimmy Fallon: "'Dancing with the Stars' was exciting. Sarah Palin was praying, 'Don't let her fall,' and Bristol Palin was praying, 'Don't let her talk.'" "The President of Iran says he's going on a trip to throw a rock at Israel. Israel's new defense? Paper." "China has decided it's not changing its 1-child policy. Their new hit TV show is 'Jon & Kate + 1 and That's It.'" "President Obama has listed the songs on his iPod. The Tea Partiers are checking to see if 'Born in the USA' is on there." "Lindsay Lohan is in a new rehab. As she went in she said, 'Keep the car running.'"

Craig Ferguson: "Christine O'Donnell is against masturbation and also doesn't believe in evolution. She says, 'Why aren't monkeys still evolving?' Because they're too busy masturbating." "Kim Jong Il is transferring power to his son Kim Jong Un, who is a Dictator Tot. Why are there all these tiny tyrants? Kim Jong Il, Napoleon, Snooki. Kim Jong Il is like a Bond villain. They should send Sean Connery in to deal with him. 'Hah, I've taken craps bigger than you!'" Robot skeleton sidekick Geoff Peterson: "In your pants."

"Role Models" by John Waters

John talks about and interviews his role models.

Page 215 - Bobby [Garcia, master of Marine porn] pulls out from a special hiding place a treasure box filled with letters from English, Spanish, and Greek royalty. Real queens, not gay ones. Bobby's hobby is writing to anyone who wears a crown. And they write back! He even shows me a polite response from Princess Di to Bobby's fan mail! "But how do you know which ones will respond?" I ask in dumbfounded amazement. "I subscribe to 'Majesty' and 'Royalty' magazines," and he starts by writing to "ladies in waiting" in each country and they "usually write back," and then he works his way up to the top.

Wednesday, September 29

Strangie to Jimmy Kimmel: "There are two Justin Bieber dolls available for Christmas. If they're sold out just buy a Ken doll and put a mushroom on his head."

David Letterman: "The murder rate is up in New York. I knew we'd bounce back." "Mayor Bloomberg is on the show tonight to announce he's quitting politics to become a rap artist." "Most Americans believe there was one Apostle named Bashful, and the Last Supper featured unlimited salad and bread sticks." "These days being Lindsay Lohan is itself a parole violation." "Rahm Emanuel is leaving the White House and wants to become Mayor of Chicago, where he'll report directly to Oprah."

Jay Leno: "It was so hot Disneyland added a new Dwarf, Sweaty." "Michael Bolton got the worst score in 'Dancing with the Stars' history, so Kate Gosselin moves up a notch. Afghan President Karzai says he's afraid to live in a world that would cast aside Michael Bolton." "The state of New Jersey will now alert drivers to traffic jams ahead. How? Text messages." "Lindsay Lohan is back in rehab, not Promises. This time she's in Vague Assurances." "Justin Bieber says he hates fans approaching him while he's eating. That makes sense. He has to climb down from his high chair ..." "Friday was Celebrate Bisexuality Day. Is that a good holiday? I could go either way." "Exercise is good for the prostate. At the gym that's one machine you want to towel off real good. And good luck finding a spotter." In a fake interview with Kim Jong Il's apparent heir Kim Jong Un, Jay asked if he was his father's favorite child. "No, that's Kim Kardashian."

Jimmy Kimmel: "The polygamists on the reality show 'Sister Wives' may be arrested. To me that show is the worst Cialis ad ever. 'Polygamists in Prison' may be an even better show." Jimmy showed the YouTube viral video of the Swiss Finance Minister overcome during a speech by a fit of giggle. "We've translated what he said: 'The look on Elmo's face when he saw Katy Perry's cleavage [see Sept. 25 above]. Poor little guy. Her breasts are so big and he is so tiny. This is more a job for the Cookie Monster. "Me like cookies and MILK!"'"

Jimmy Fallon: "41% of Americans don't know who the Vice President is. Joe Biden said, 'Give me a hint.'" "Atheists know more about organized religion than either Catholics or Protestants. An atheist said, 'I can't believe it.'" "A Chicago newscaster was caught picking her nose on camera. She said, 'This just out.'" "The Facebook movie, 'The Social Network,' opens Fri. It’s about what 1 person can achieve…when they’re not distracted by Facebook."

Craig Ferguson: "Christine O'Donnell says lust is a sin, and you can't masturbate without lust. You can, but it's bleak. She may not believe in pleasuring herself, but she did massage her resume. Yes! She said she went to Oxford, and she didn't. Which is a shame, since the Oxford rugby team is the Fighting Masturbators, because they always choke. I tell people I attended Yale, which is a bar in Glasgow. Anyway, it turns out Christine did work a couple of years ago as a publicist for Mel Gibson. Her duties were typing, filing, and blaming stuff on the Jews." "The Washington press will let little stuff slide, like saying you were born in Hawaii." Guest Steven Wright: "I have tattoos, but they're on the other side of my skin, so you can't see them."

"Role Models" by John Waters

John talks about and interviews his role models.

Page 217 - Then there is David Hurles. Maybe he is even more fanatical than Bobby in his sexual tastes for the outer limits of straight men. Danger is the turn-on for Mr. Hurles. Marines aren't butch enough or scary enough. No, David likes psychos. Nude ones. Money-hungry drug addicts with big dicks. Rage-filled robbers without rubbers. And of course, convicts -- his ultimate Prince Charmings. [He was Old Reliable.]

229 - [John himself] But, sure, I can still go for a confused dick. My real type, these days, is a blue-collar closet queen -- they're the best. They don't want to go to premieres with you, they don't want to be in your movies, they don't want to meet your famous friends, they don't even want to be seen with your because then people would know. They just want to come over. The perfect boyfriend.

Thursday, September 30

Strangie to Jimmy Fallon: "Goldman Sachs has a new ad to show what the company does. Isn't that what the recession showed?"

Jon Stewart: "Grill Interrupted, BBQ & A: President Obama is holding meetings in peoples' backyards." Showed clip of the homeowner warning, "Watch your step. There may be a fresh one." Jon: "The most embarrassing thing, the guy didn't even own a dog."

Chelsea Handler: "A Tiger Woods mistress is selling a sex tape for $350,000." Arden Myrin: "I hope they have a golf announcer. 'Tiger's approaching the vagina. Oh, he missed.'" Chelsea: "A German man peed into an electric socket and closed down a nightclub. Chuy, have you ever peed someplace you shouldn't?" Chuy: "Inside your car."

Stephen Colbert: "How accurate are polls? I'll interrupt your dinner and ask you what you think." "If you're going to Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity, you know what else is supposed to restore sanity? A lobotomy. And Jon's bringing icepicks." "Researchers have taught a robot to lie, probably telling whoever gave them the grant that the research is worthwhile."

David Letterman: "The murder rate is up in NY. If you get shot, be sure to get the slugs out before you get to the airport, or you'll set off the metal detectors. Every morning I blindfold myself and practice disassembling and assembling my gun. I saw Lady Gaga on Broadway wearing bulletproof meat." "Scientists have discovered a planet that may support human life. Whatever you do, don't tell British Petroleum. Today BP created a new Safety Division. Today. And General Custer hired a lookout." "Kim Jong Il is going to be succeeded by his idiot son, Kim Jong W. Il. I hope the transfer of power works better than Conan replacing Jay." "I don't think President Obama is wise to hold events in people's backyards." Showed a clip of a sprinkler system turning on.

Jay Leno: "There's debate over whether the audience at 'Dancing with the Stars' was booing Sarah Palin or the judges. Turns out they were still booing the Hoff from last week." "Lindsay Lohan is in rehab again. It's like the Clippers going to training camp. What's the use?" "Obama has the right idea. All politicians should have meeting in backyards. Then you can take what they say and spread it on the lawn." "President Obama said, 'Yes, I'm a Christian.' Fox News said he admitted he's a follower of the bearded radical from the Mid-East." "Obama had said if the stimulus bill passed Caterpillar would hire a lot of Americans. They are hiring hundreds of workers, in China. And if you call the White House to complain you get the hotline in India." "Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell opposes masturbation. The band's against her. Usually you guys don't get political." Bandleader Rickey Minor: "We're political now." Jay: "Anyway, Republican Sen. Tom Coburn says she'll be able to combat the stupidity in Washington, so I guess they're going to fight fire with fire." "A Louisiana candidate has a TV ad featuring a hooker hired by his opponent. Worse, it's a 2-minute ad, twice as long as the guy lasted." "There's a shortage of a drug needed for executions. How bad is our health system when our prisoners can't get the drugs they need to die." "Ben & Jerry has had to drop 'all natural' from their labels. You mean Chunky Monkey doesn't come direct from the earth?" Correspondemt Mikey Day reported on his time travel to the past and future. Here he is watching his future self being kissed in the Oval Office by President Palin.

 Click for a great clip of Mikey Day time traveling.

Jimmy Kimmel: "There was a new 'Jersey Shore' tonight. You hate to see orange-on-orange violence, but Anita and Snooki got into a fight. Snooki's writing a novel. I think it's called 'Eat Smoosh Puke.'" "On the Discovery Channel's 'Deadliest Catch,' 3 of the captains have quit. I guess they've caught everything. I think they should do 'The Rehab Boat: The Celebritiest Catch with Dr. Drew, Lindsay, Paris, Mel, the Hoff, etc."

Jimmy Fallon: "It's been raining all week in NY. Me and my bedbugs have hardly left the house." "The effort to get those 33 trapped Chilean miners out is ahead of schedule. The miners said, 'Whose schedule?'" "A Senate bill requires TV stations to lower the volume level on commercials. A hundred of the most powerful people in the nation have managed to do the same thing my remote does." "The Naked Cowboy from Times Square is running for President in 2012 on a conservative platform. If you've seen him in his underwear you know he leans right."

Craig Ferguson: "A man in London is suing because he bought a loaf of bread and found a mouse baked into it. He said it was so disgusting he could hardly finish his jellied eels and blood pudding." "'The Flintstones' turned 50. They had the first eco-car, powered by feet. The bigger the feet, the bigger the ride. Their theme song ended, 'We'll have a gay old time.' That's when gay meant fun. Now it means really fun. It's the show that proved men and dinosaurs coexisted, before the dinosaurs were wiped out by a BP oil spill."

"Role Models" by John Waters

John talks about and interviews his role models.

Page 234 - And I'm not talking about lightweight neurotics-in-denial like Idaho senator Larry Craig. Any respectable tearoom queen could have told him how to have sex in a public bathroom in an airport without getting caught. All you do is have one man sit on the toilet while the other stands with each leg in an empty shopping bag. If any nose vice cops are looking under the stall, they'll only see one set of legs and two shopping bags.

273 - I'm so tired of writing "Cult Filmmaker" on my income tax forms.

280 - William Burroughs once called me "the Pope of Trash" and I've been milking that title for decades.
