      I read that UPS is now requiring customers to show a photo ID when they ship something. It's just like the TSA. First, they check your ID, and then they check your package. (Jimmy Fallon)

      Mike Tyson is heading to the International Boxing Hall of Fame. Who said his career was ear-redeemable? (RJ Currie)

      WikiLeaks head Julian Assange says that if arrested, he will release secret documents, including information on UFOs. Arrest him, I want to see those documents. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      Hillary Clinton flew to Asia to repair allied relations hurt by WikiLeaks. She herself was once a young staffer on the House Impeachment Committee that reviewed Richard Nixon's released secret tapes. You can read the transcripts at TrikiDikiLeaks. (Argus Hamilton)

      One of charges against WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, is that he had sex with a Swedish woman but his condom broke resulting in unprotected sex which is against the law in Sweden. His condom broke, so I guess his Wiki really did leak. (Alex Kaseberg)

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

      THE HOLIDAY SEASON

      Xmas is coming. Biblical historians speak of why Mary and Joseph chose a stable to rest that fateful night. The other option was her parents. (Alan Ray)

      You have to be careful of political correctness this time of the year. You can't call them "Santa's elves" anymore. They're "undocumented little people." (Jay Leno)

      'T'was the night before Christmas' is such enchanting poetry. When what to my wondering eyes should appear. Eight reindeer using the rooftop as a lavatory. (Alan Ray)

      'Tis the holiday season. Biblical scholars teach the 3 wise men brought the baby Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Unfortunately, what Mary had registered for was OshKosh. (Alan Ray)

      It's Christmas time. It's that wonderful season of the year where people string up a little tinsel, some trinkets, some popcorn and some cranberries. Or, as Lady Gaga calls that, an outfit. (Frank King)

      THE TAX CUT BILL

      A poll says that tax cuts for the wealthy are only supported by one third of voters. That pretty much is made up of the very wealthy and people who watch Fox News. (Jim Barach)

      Do you know that president Obama is into re-gifting? In fact, he just gave the Republicans the tax cuts he inherited from President Bush. (Jay Leno)

      President Obama has reached a deal with Republicans to extend the Bush tax cuts, in exchange for extending jobless benefits. Republicans in Congress say they're thrilled with the tax cuts, while Democrats leaving Congress say they're thrilled with the jobless benefits. (Jimmy Fallon)

      President Obama has agreed to extend the Bush-era tax cuts. Because if there's anything we need, it's an extension of the Bush era. (David Letterman)

      It looks like the Bush-era tax cuts for the rich will continue, due to a strong Republican leader, Barack Obama. Today Obama changed his slogan from 'Yes we can' to 'Yes, we caved.' It's so bad for him, now Democrats want to see his birth certificate. (Jay Leno)

      President Obama is now considering reducing corporate tax rates. That, and the fact that he's installing a Polo field behind the White House have people thinking Obama is moving a little to the right. (Jake Novak)

      More and more Congressional Democrats are abandoning President Obama's tax deal. It's not clear whether it's because they disagree with the compromise, or because he didn't get any of them an X-Box Kinect for Christmas. (Jake Novak)

      President Obama was blasted by Democrats Wednesday for giving the GOP tax cuts, earned income tax credits and lower payroll taxes. Democrats and Republicans agree on only one thing now. If Obama had been an Indian chief, Custer would have died of old age. (Argus Hamilton)

      PRESIDENT OBAMA

      President Obama made a surprise visit to Afghanistan. Nobody knew he was going -- except for the WikiLeaks guy. (Jay Leno)

      President Obama went to Afghanistan over the weekend. He dropped in, shook a few hands, and left within an hour. It's like me at Thanksgiving. (David Letterman)

      Obama was going to have a meeting with Afghan President Karzai about the country's corruption, incompetence, and the wasting of American tax dollars. And that's just what Karzai was going to lecture Obama about. (Jay Leno)

      On President Obama's visit to Afghanistan he wanted to meet with President Hamid Karzai, but it was cancelled by bad weather. Obama was going to suggest that they change the name of the country to YesWeCanistan. And if Karzai didn't play ball, Af-gone-istan. (Frank King)

      President Obama caved in to the GOP and extended Bush’s tax cuts. Looks like he can be talked into anything. Even Michelle got him to blame basketball for his split lip instead of rough sex. (Bob Mills)

      Thousands of people turned out to see President Obama's Christmas tree lighting. Maroon 5 played at the tree lighting. They were a big deal a couple years ago. Sort of like President Obama. (Craig Ferguson)

      Pres. Obama has granted the first pardons of his presidency. Among the offenses pardoned were drug possessions, counterfeiting, and selling season tickets to Baltimore Orioles games. He pardoned nine offenders; not among them was the guy who hit him in the mouth during the basketball game. (Jerry Perisho)

      THE ADMINISTRATION

      Because of a printing error nearly a billion $100 bills will have to be destroyed. Hey, if these bills are worthless, don't destroy them. Use them to pay off the Chinese. (Jay Leno)

      In case Pres. Obama has any openings in the Defense Dept., Albert Haynesworth just became available. (Jerry Perisho)

      THE CONGRESS

      Hal Rogers, a Kentucky Congressman known as the 'Prince of Pork' for his skill at getting money for his hometown, has been named head of the Appropriations Committee, which will allegedly lead the GOP drive to cut federal earmarks. Isn't this like having unwed teen mother Bristol Palin spearhead an abstinence drive? (Janice Hough)

      House Speaker-to-be John Boehner announced plans Thursday to install the first ladies' room convenient for women lawmakers, located in the hall outside the House Chamber. It's about time. Until now they had to drive over to Virginia and go outdoors. (Argus Hamilton)

      Senator Harry Reid tried Monday to push through a measure legalizing online poker and giving Nevada and New Jersey a monopoly on the currently outlawed action. It's a trade protection measure. Harry Reid wants all gangsters to be made in America. (Argus Hamilton)

      The U.S. Capitol was swarmed by fresh faces Friday as new lawmakers began arriving before taking office in January. The swearing-in ceremony is a sacred tradition. The new congressmen stand in the Chamber, raise their right hands, and take the Hypocritical Oath. (Argus Hamilton)

      THE MILITARY

      The Republicans might be willing to allow homosexual men and women to die for their country, once anyone earning over $500,000 a year is allowed to park in handicapped spaces and be addressed as 'Guvner' in an English accent. (John Oliver)

      Legislation was enacted in 1993 designed to allow gay people to serve in the military as long as they told their colleagues that the ripped, topless and be-jean shorted fireman that they had in their foot locker was cousin Rico. (Jay Leno)

      The Obama team wants to give the military a 1.4% raise next year. Unfortunately, Wikileaks is offering 2.4%. (Jake Novak)

      The X-37B, a remote-controlled space plane, landed last week after circling the globe for seven months. It was supposed to return last August, but the pilots spent too much time in the Sky Room at Vandenberg and overshot the runway by four months. (Bob Mills)

      THE STATES

      South Carolina governor Mark Sanford now says his 2009 affair and disgrace actually made him a more effective governor. Hmm, maybe now we know why Bill Clinton was able to get so much legislation passed. (Janice Hough)

      People in New York State say they would prefer service cuts to higher taxes. Just as soon as they figure out which services the state actually offers. (Jim Barach)

      LOCAL NEWS

      Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa attacked the teachers unions last night, saying they have blocked all his efforts for education reform. He also complained that sometimes, they send their campaign contributions to his office a little late. (Jake Novak)

      A San Francisco marijuana collective delivers medicinal marijuana to people's homes. The service may be contracted out to Domino's Pizza so they could take care of the patient's delivery needs at the same time. (Jim Barach)

      There's a medical marijuana store in California that apparently makes home deliveries. I think that's called a 'dealer' (Jimmy Fallon)

      Boulder, Colo., and Ann Arbor, Mich., came in 1-2 when Portfolio.com released its list of America's 10 brainiest cities. Apparently it was determined before the Buffs' and Wolverines' last football-coaching hires. (Dwight Perry)

      U.S. POLITICS &. POLITICIANS

      Bill Clinton revealed that he now supports same-sex marriage, even though he opposed it during his presidency. To be fair, during his presidency, he also opposed his own marriage. (Jimmy Fallon)

      Part-time Governor Sarah Palin shot and killed a reindeer on last week's TV show. And that was her Christmas special. Took her three shots. Well, she's rusty. Last thing she brought down was John McCain (David Letterman)

      Sarah Palin defended killing a Caribou on "Sarah Palin's Alaska" by posting on twitter if you've ever eaten meat you cannot criticize. Really? That's like Michael Vick saying you can't criticize dog fighting if you've ever wagged your finger and said; "Bad dog." (Alex Kaseberg)

      Sarah Palin says she is planning a trip to Europe and Israel next year. For someone who hates socialists and non-Christians, the only way that trip could be worse is to be sitting on the plane flight in between Whoopi Goldberg and Bill O'Reilly. (Jim Barach)

      Between the made-up words and wildly shooting at anything with four legs, Sarah Palin is turning into Elmer Fudd. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      The Palins and the Gosselins are going camping together on "Sarah Palin's Alaska." I think they'll get lost in the woods and have to eat one of the Gosselin kids. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      TAXES & THE ECONOMY

      The tax cut deal means tax cuts for the rich and benefits for the unemployed. If you work for a living, you're screwed. (Jay Leno)

      Obama says he wants to jump-start the economy with the tax cut bill. His former Democratic pals say all he's jumping is ship. (Scott Witt)

      President Obama has extended the Bush-era tax cuts. Let's extend the policies of a man that gave us the greatest recession in the history of the planet. (Jay Leno)

      These days when government workers apply for loans, banks check not only their credit records but also their WikiLeaks references. (Scott Witt)

      WalMart announced Tuesday it will partner with Homeland Security to help battle against domestic terrorism. Over six hundred stores will participate. Airport security wasn't humiliating enough, now we're all going to get pat-downs from WalMart greeters. (Argus Hamilton)

      Walmart is now considering selling wine from vending machines. As a precaution, the machine requires that you swipe your driver's license first. If you're buying wine from a vending machine, what are the odds you still have a driver's license? (Jay Leno)

      Wal-Mart is considering installing wine vending machines, with customers having to pass a breathalyzer test. To which Wal-Mart shoppers are good with. Just as long as it isn't an I. Q. test. (Jim Barach)

      7-Eleven is developing a house wine called Cherrywood Cellars. Finally, a wine you can microwave. (Conan O'Brien)

      Consumer Reports has rated AT&T as the worst U. S. wireless carrier. Apparently Apple chose them to be the only carrier for the iPhone because people use their iPhone for everything but to actually make phone calls. (Jim Barach)

      A $62,000 iPhone is being offered that is encased with a T-Rex tooth and material from an ancient meteor. Apparently the motif is an homage to the outdated technology iPhone users get from having AT&T as their carrier. (Jim Barach)

      Apple is working on new 3-D technology that can be seen without special glasses. But it's not ready yet, so if you want to experience 3-D without having to wear 3-D glasses, go outside and look at something. (Jimmy Fallon)

      A BP official says that efforts to stop the Gulf oil spill leak were too late. But when you are paying millions of dollars for PR companies to work around the clock to protect the company's image, who has any money left to pay spill workers? (Jim Barach)

      Listerine is now offering a less intense mouthwash called Zero. Are there really people out there who find Listerine too intense? Do they also find flossing too complicated? (Alex Kaseberg)

      CRIME & PUNISHMENT

      Wesley Snipes is starting his prison sentence for tax evasion. First, it was Charlie Sheen, now Snipes. It's the curse of the movie "Major League." (Craig Ferguson)

      Wesley Snipes reported to federal prison for not filing income taxes. It seems odd that the punishment for not paying taxes is to go live and eat in a place paid for by taxes. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      A woman in Texas is going to jail for too many overdue library books. First you arrest Willie Nelson for pot, then send a woman to jail for library books? Kids, let that be a lesson. Never read, and don't carry marijuana on your tour bus in Texas. (Craig Ferguson)

      An Alabama woman has been charged with stealing 200 books from a library. Alabamans were puzzled. How many wobbly tables can one person have? (Jim Barach)

      Charles Manson was busted for having a cell phone in his prison cell. He's surrounded by concrete and metal bars. What carrier does he have? (Jay Leno)

      TERRORISM & SECURITY

      Former "Baywatch" star and Playboy Playmate Donna D'Errico claims a male TSA agent singled her out for a full body scan at LAX. It was a wise decision. Why waste a good body scan on a fat, hairy guy from the Middle East? (Jerry Perisho)

      The TSA was found Friday to have put CNN's Drew Griffin on its terrorist watch list for his reports critical of their airport security procedures. Think of the benefits. The TSA makes it possible for you to get molested this Christmas even if you don't go to church. (Argus Hamilton)

      Because it's the holiday travel season and everyone is on edge, when the TSA agents have their hands in your pants, don't be surprised if they leave a candy cane. (David Letterman)

      In an interview with V magazine, the beautiful actress Salma Hayek reveals that she came to the United States illegally. How many guys are rethinking their stance on illegal immigration now? (Jay Leno)

      A city in Germany has created a "pleasure tax", forcing prostitutes to purchase tickets for each day they're working. I want to thank the Germans for not calling it a 'pole tax'. (Jerry Perisho)

      In Paris, a retired electrician was found with 271 Picasso paintings. He claims they were payments for administering shock treatments to scramble the faces of his models. (Bob Mills)

      The Vatican was voted the most ecological city in the world thanks to giant solar panels installed on roofs. They not only save on electricity, but the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is even more impressive in flashing neon. (Bob Mills)

      AFRICA

      Nigerian authorities are charging former Vice President Dick Cheney on a bribery scandal that involves Haliburton.

(Jay Leno)

      AUSTRALIA & OCEAN ISLANDS

      A 20-year-old Australian man married his 5-year-old yellow Labrador named Honey. Between you and me, I don't think its going to last, he thought she was a bitch before they got married. (Alex Kaseberg)

      SCIENCE

      Scientists have discovered a gene that makes boys develop as girls. They have reportedly named it the "Seacrest Gene". (Jim Barach)

      The Weather Channel attributed Tuesday's early winter arrival to this season's La Nina. The West will remain bone-dry. California is so prone to brushfires that a fire truck must be present whenever Willie Nelson's tour bus crosses the state line. (Argus Hamilton)

      It's cold in New York City. At St. Patrick's, they put antifreeze in the holy water. (David Letterman)

      The Washington State football team dropped two players after police found 38 marijuana plants growing in their house. The team was 2-10 this season, but these guys seemed to be pretty mellow about it. (Jerry Perisho)

      ATHLETES

      Cam Newton led Auburn into the BCS national championship with an emphatic 56-17 drubbing of South Carolina. I will say one thing, the Tigers are certainly getting more value for what they're paying their quarterback than the San Francisco 49ers. (Janice Hough)

      Reggie Bush, saying he didn't know his parents were living in that posh house paid for by player agents, now wants his Heisman Trophy back. (Dwight Perry)
