At Least He Only Waggled His Finger

I love the Democratic National Convention! Four days of political speeches, video montages, and grown people in funny hats – really, what could be better than that? It’s an endless source of late night monologue joke material.

To wit: Dave Letterman used one of my DNC 08 jokes about Bill Clinton on last night’s Late Show (8/27/08):

Bill Clinton spoke earlier tonight at the Democratic National Convention.

The speech was a big success; he got four standing ovations and five phone numbers.

Of course, the DNC is really just a warm up for next week’s Republican National Convention. Hopefully, Dick Cheney will bring his gun and then the fun can really begin!

Recyclable Material

David Letterman and the Late Show are on another two-week summer hiatus this week and next which means I don’t have to spend every waking minute thinking about writing jokes. After all, they don’t write themselves – at least not all the time.

There’s nothing I like better (well, almost nothing) then getting a joke on air just before a long LS break; you know, ending on a good note, that sort of thing. Last week, then, was particularly good because Dave told two of my jokes at the end of the week!

First up, there was this little number that Dave told on the Thursday Late Show (8/7/08):

Brett Favre has approved a trade to the New York Jets.

The deal is pending a physical so he can have his head examined.

Faithful Chumworth readers will suspect that this joke sounds familiar – and indeed it does! That’s because it’s a formula that Dave and I (we’re a team, don’t ya know) have used before. Behold, in November 2005 he told this joke that I wrote:

Then, on Friday’s Late Show (lucky 8/8/08) he told this joke of mine:

The Olympics started today over in Beijing.

It’s two weeks of competition to see which country has the best pharmacists.

If you need me, I’ll be spending the next couple of weeks working on my farmer’s tan
