Kyle Kinane on Jam Bands

“If jam bands are your thing, good for you, bless your heart on that stuff. I do not hear a jam. I never hear a jam. I hear five stepdads who don’t know how to end a song.”

Craig Ferguson on Drug Addiction

“It was explained to me in rehab that the difference between an alcoholic and a junkie was this: An alcoholic will steal your purse to buy alcohol and then be consumed with guilt and remorse and drink themselves to death over it. A junkie will steal your purse and then help you look for it.”

“My husband’s the best. Before we have sex, he always puts the lights on. I shut them off, and he puts them back on. He’s like, ‘Amy, why are you so shy? You have a beautiful body.’ I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, you’re so cute. You think I don’t want you to see me.’”

Right up there with ‘Watch me scare the president!’”
