      . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .TOP QUOTES OF THE WEEK

      The Airport screening rule is they can only touch your breasts and groin area over clothes. Same rule my high school prom date had. (Jay Leno)

      The White House is working on a new terror alert system. Instead of colors it's going to tell how handsie the TSA agents are going to be. Yellow stands for cop a feel. Orange stands for gentle junk swipe, and red stands for full-on sextickle. (Jimmy Fallon)

      Coach Pete Caroll said his Seahawks played like garbage last weekend. This may explain why their opponents think the game is in the bag. (RJ Currie)

      What do you get when you cross NASCAR with the Miami Heat? The Daytona Barely. 500 (Dwight Perry)

      President Obama needed twelve stitches in his lip after he got elbowed while playing basketball with friends in town for Thanksgiving. He's lucky. Tiger Woods got a bloody lip last Thanksgiving and he wound up in the Mistress Protection Program. (Argus Hamilton)

      Police arrested Willie Nelson after finding pot on his tour bus. Looks like it's curtains for Willie -- last time, the judge promised to throw the book at him if he was caught high on the road again. (Bob Mills)

      There was supposed to be a protest, but nobody opted out of the full-body scans, maybe because of the signs TSA posted: "If you are embarrassed by your penis size, you may opt out of being scanned." (Jimmy Kimmel)

      Doesn't the name "WikiLeaks" sound like the name of some kind of freaky website that offers every fact imaginable on peeing? (Tim Hunter)

      The Clippers have a lot of talent and they have a bright future, but unfortunately this is the present. (Charles Barkley)

      American Airlines is going to offer happy hour on its flights in December. TSA is feeling us up. The airline is giving us free booze. We don't even have to make Friday night plans anymore. Just book a flight. (Jimmy Fallon)

      License plate frame: "Good Cowgirls Keep their Calves Together" (Tim Hunter)

      Willie Nelson got arrested again for marijuana possession, this time by the U. S. Border Patrol in Texas. And in other startling news, the Clippers have the NBA's worst record and there was a lot of local interest in the Alabama-Auburn game. (Dwight Perry)

      . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . WIKILEAKS

      WikiLeaks is a website that gets a hold of classified information and releases it to the public. They get all kinds of top secret stuff: White House memos, government e-mails, the truth about Lady Gaga. (Craig Ferguson)

      WikiLeaks has released thousands of classified documents that could be detrimental to the United States. Usually, when something this embarrassing about the United States is revealed, it's because Joe Biden said it. (Jay Leno)

      Hillary Clinton was revealed by WikiLeaks Monday to have ordered U. S. diplomats to spy on U. N. delegates from other countries. She wanted to know everything. When you've been with Bill Clinton for forty years you know better than to take anyone's story at face value. (Argus Hamilton)

      Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called WikiLeaks “the most serious invasion of privacy since Facebook (Andy Borowitz)

      President George W. Bush says the Wikileaks documents will hurt U. S. relations. And if there is anyone who knows how to hurt U. S. relations, it is President Bush. (Jim Barach)

      Rep. Peter King says WikiLeaks presents a clear and present danger to our national security and should be branded a terrorist organization. Former Vice President Dick Cheney says we should waterboard the Internet. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      WikiLeaks' Julian Assange said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should resign for ordering American diplomats to spy on their foreign counterparts. Thanks, creepy Australian guy who's wanted for rape in Sweden, we'll make a note of that. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      WikiLeaks founder denies rape accusations in Sweden, says he was too busy screwing America's troops. (Scott Witt)

      The head of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, has gone into hiding. They say he's some place all alone where no one can find him. In fact, officials believe he may be hiding in a theater showing "Burlesque." (Jay Leno)

      According to those WikiLeaks documents, Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah wants the U. S. to get tough with Iran by cutting off "the head of the snake." President Obama said, "Couldn't we just elbow them in the lip?" (Frank King)

      WikiLeaks shows our allies are also funding the terrorists. So we're like the commissionless middlemen in a war we're waging against ourselves. (Jon Stewart)

      WikiLeaks revealed Monday that the U. S. was weighing transferring terror suspects from Guantanamo to Illinois State Prison. They'd like it there. Illinois has the cleanest and best-run prisons in the world because Illinois politicians believe in taking care of their own. (Argus Hamilton)

      WikiLeaks continues to release thousands of classified documents, but some of the leaks are just gossip. Like the one saying Iranian President Ahmadinejad was once offered a 10 pm show on NBC. I guess they were just trying to ruin his reputation. (Jay Leno)

      The name "WikiLeaks" doesn't sound like espionage. It sounds like Barbara Walters interviewing Ricky Martin. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      Hillary globe trots, apologizing for the embarrassing escapades revealed in WikiLeaks, especially the parts about Bill. (Scott Witt)

      WikiLeaks released more than 250,000 secret documents, some of which refer to computer passwords for world leaders. The most shocking revelation: Kofi Annan's password is "BieberFan9." (Conan O'Brien)

      WikiLeaks is the 250,000-page document dump, which like most post-Thanksgiving dumps, is fascinating to pick through. The site should not be confused with WookieLeaks, where a large furry creature pees on you. (Jon Stewart)

      I'm sure everyone is already missing their loved ones. And by loved ones, I mean the TSA guys that give you the pat-down. (Craig Ferguson)

      It's my 30th wedding anniversary. I had a big surprise set up for my wife, but she found out about it on WikiLeaks. (Jay Leno)

      . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . TSA

      According to the TSA, most of the people protesting the new body search procedures are men. At last they're getting to see what it's like to be groped by someone who won't take no for an answer. (Jay Leno)

      Yesterday a woman wore a bikini to LAX airport hoping to avoid the patdown. She is still being patted down. (Conan O'Brien)

      With the recent controversy over more intrusive airport screenings by the Transportation Security Administration (a wholly owned subsidiary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security), the TSA wants to adopt a new slogan so that it's more "in touch with Americans," a TSA spokesman said. "A warm, touchy feely concept to make our subjects -- uh, citizens -- more comfortable." (Jumbo Joke)

      Responding to the public's accusations of unnecessary groping by their employees, the TSA issued a warning to all male travelers to report any agent who asks you to turn your head and cough. (Bob Mills)

      . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . SARAH PALIN

      Sarah’s real fans all quit halfway through each episode of 'Sarah Palin's Alaska'. (Stan Kegel)

      President Obama has set aside over 180 million acres of land for polar bears. When Sarah Palin heard about it, she said, "Todd, get my gun." (Conan O'Brien)

      In Sarah Palin's new book, she derides American Idol performers as people who can't sing, but delude themselves by trying to in front of a national audience. This from someone who can't think, but deludes herself by trying to in front of a national audience. (Paul Benoit)

      Sarah Palin is so upset at Barbara Bush's comments about her on The Larry King Live that she is demanding that Barbara's picture be removed from the dollar bill. (Gil Ross)

      Sarah Palin has a new book out. She touts her knowledge and understanding of the issues. She can see Wikipedia from her laptop. (Alan Ray)

      Playboy ran a poll saying sixty-five percent of Americans say they would rather see Sarah Palin in a bikini than Pamela Anderson. That is good news for Sarah. However, sixty-five percent of Americans said they would rather see Pamela Anderson as president. (Argus Hamilton)

      In a recent interview, Sarah Palin said we must stand with our North Korean allies. When she was corrected she said, "Listen, geometry was never my strong suit." (Jay Leno)

      In a recent interview, Sarah Palin said we have to stand with "our North Korean allies." When told that North Korea is not our ally, Palin said, "Sorry, I meant East Korean allies." (Conan O'Brien)

      . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . MARIJUANA

      Willie Nelson was busted for possession of marijuana in Texas. That is big news, if it is 1971. (Jim Barach)

      Singer Willie Nelson was arrested after pot was found on-board his tour bus. Arresting Willie Nelson for smoking pot is like jailing Dolly Parton for using underwire support. (Jerry Perisho)

      In a major coup for the border patrol's war on drug smuggling on the Mexican border, authorities seized 6 ounces of marijuana and detained notorious pot-smoking "outlaw" Willie Nelson. Nelson was detained after a border patrol officer heroically boarded his tour bus after detecting a pungent scent in the air. They arrested Willie Nelson for weed? That's like arresting Santa for breaking and entering. (Scott Galindez)

      Willie Nelson got arrested again for marijuana possession, this time by the U. S. Border Patrol in Texas. And in other startling news, the Clippers have the NBA's worst record and there was a lot of local interest in the Alabama-Auburn game. (Dwight Perry)

      DEA agents uncovered a half-mile-long tunnel running from a Tijuana house to a San Diego warehouse last Friday. The tunnel had a railroad track and railcars loaded with tons of marijuana. The operation is a real-life replica of the train set in Willie Nelson's den. (Argus Hamilton)

      Anderson Cooper did a show this week from inside that half-mile long drug smuggling tunnel between San Diego and Mexico. It's quite an amazing tunnel. It has lighting, ventilation, a rail car, a Starbucks. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      DEA agents found a railed drug tunnel from Tijuana to San Diego Friday. It contained a rail car loaded with tons of marijuana. California just offered to allow Willie Nelson to work off his community service sentence by unloading the rail car when he plays San Diego. (Argus Hamilton)

      . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .PRESIDENT OBAMA

      President Obama held a ceremony at the White House to celebrate the first night of Hanukkah. In response, Republicans said, "It's even worse than we thought. He's a Jewish Muslim." (Conan O'Brien)

      President Obama announced that he's recommending a freeze on pay raises for federal employees. You have to admit it takes a lot of guts to cut the income of the guy who's about to remove your stitches. (Bob Mills)

      President Obama announced a two-year pay freeze for all federal employees. This means the next time the TSA agent is reaching into your pockets, he's looking for spare change. (Jay Leno)

      . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .THE CONGRESS

      The government is considering raising the retirement age to 69. In other words, they want Brett Favre to play two more years. (Conan O'Brien)

      The Beverly Hills police asked the public for any leads in the murder of Hollywood publicist Ronnie Chasen. It may be a religious problem. Most people here identify themselves as Jehovah's Bystanders--that's a Witness who doesn't want to get involved. (Argus Hamilton)

      On his book tour George W. Bush said, "I was a Blackberry person, and now I'm an iPad person, so I hope you buy my book in hardcover and electronically." So there you have it. George W. Bush doesn't care about Blackberries. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      This week, we had the biggest Cyber Monday ever. This is partly because Cyber Monday was only invented two years ago. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      Justin Bieber was nominated for Best New Artist. It's nice to see Justin Bieber finally getting some recognition. That's got to make the other nominees feel great. It's like finding out you were nominated for Best Actress and then finding out Snooki was nominated too. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .THE INTERNET AND BLOGS

      . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .OTHER CELEBRITIES

      Bristol Palin was finally knocked off "Dancing with the Stars." Bristol knocked off "Dancing with the Stars." We're just happy Bristol wasn't knocked-up on "Dancing with the Stars." (Jerry Perisho)

      . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .RELIGION

      Pope Benedict issued a ruling permitting the use of condoms Friday. It's highly conditional. He said condoms may be used only on two occasions, by male prostitutes to prevent the spread of AIDS, and by Protestants to prevent the spread of golf. (Argus Hamilton)

      The Pope said in an interview recently that the use of condoms is acceptable under certain circumstances. For instance, if you're dating someone from the cast of 'Jersey Shore.' (Jay Leno)

      Pope Benedict wrote Saturday that condom use was justified in cases where male prostitutes use them with clients to prevent the spread of AIDS. It was an edgy opinion for a pope. Three monks suffered nervous breakdowns trying to translate the edict into Latin. (Argus Hamilton)

      . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .HOLIDAYS

      A special thanks to our audience tonight. You must really hate your relatives to come down here on Thanksgiving Day. The original Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims lasted three days. That was before we learned we could eat three days worth of food in one day. (Jay Leno)

      Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I have a lot to be thankful for: I have a new studio, a new show, I never have to watch Bristol Palin dance again. (Conan O'Brien)

      Hanukkah begins at sundown; it is the Festival of Lights where oil burns for 8 straight days. It's kind of like you're trying to clean up a spill on the Gulf of Mexico. (Jerry Perisho)

      It's the first night of celebrating — and misspelling — Hanukkah. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      It's the second night of Hanukkah. Because we're at TBS, we'll just rerun the first night. (Conan O'Brien)

      Hanukkah is the festival of lights, or as Mel Gibson calls it, "Wednesday." (Craig Ferguson)

      The miracle of Hanukkah is that there was only enough oil to keep the menorah lit for one night and it lasted for eight nights. As far as religious miracles go, it's not exactly the resurrection of the Easter bunny, but it's fun for the kids. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      Gov. Schwarzenegger attended a menorah-lighting ceremony. He said he always looks forward to Hanukkah. At least I think that's what he said. He might have said "I like to play the harmonica." (Jay Leno)

      The Christmas season begins. Folklore has it that Santa delivers packages with 8 tiny reindeer. Over the years, this has proven more reliable than shipping UPS. (Alan Ray)

      The annual "Christmas Village" in Philadelphia has been renamed the "Holiday Village." In fact, they're not Santa's reindeer anymore. They're now "nondenominational venison." (Jay Leno)

      Tis the season to be jolly. Why is Santa shouting “ho, ho, ho” at the mall? Because he’s the only one not looking for parking. (Alan Ray)

      Dr. Ruth Westheimer urged single people to experience intimate contact during the holidays for their emotional well-being. All you have to do is buy an airline ticket and walk through security. Buy a ticket on Southwest and it's cheaper than a hooker or a gigolo. (Argus Hamilton)

      John Wayne's wig was up for auction. He wore wigs in all of his movies after 1948, but made up for it with his cool walk. I admire John Wayne as an actor, but I'm not interested in buying stuff that belonged to him. I prefer collecting personal items from celebrities that are still alive — which is stealing. (Craig Ferguson)

      Last month, Darth Vader's suit went up for auction and it didn't sell. They should try putting John Wayne's wig on it. (Craig Ferguson)

      A Picasso collection of 271 works has shown up in the garage of a French electrician who worked for the artist. Picasso's family says the artwork was stolen. To which the electrician has told Picasso's heirs not to get their noses out of joint. (Jim Barach)
