Thank You Notes with a Cameo from The New York Jets

Posted by Sara Schaefer January 16, 2010 12:30 AM

This week, Jimmy's Thank You Notes are really top notch. He thanks Kate Gosselin, Mark McGwire, and more. When he writes a thank you note to Ringo Starr, things get pretty tense. Then, the New York Jets show up for their very own thank you note!!

Hey Friday friends! It's that time again! Time to recap this week in gifs! It's time for another TGIF GIF!

This week we unveiled a new game segment to the world: Competitive Spit Takes! People spit water in each others' faces. Yes they did.


And a couple braved the spit take love test together:

Bad move, bro.

Tuesday Ringo Starr was the star of the whole show and Jimmy had his dreams of getting to sing with a Beatle come true:

"I get by with a little help...."

Also, Big Papi himself, David Ortiz, paid late night a visit and gave Jimmy some batting advice while he pitched him some eggs:


And then Big Papi egged Jimmy:

  • I like bangs. Not the loud noise ones but the hair ones. I also like bands. Here are "Bands with the Best Bangs." (Spin Earth)

  • I'm not so good at figuring out the best way to pack up a car with luggage but these people know how to maximize what they have to work with. It's Extremely Overloaded Vehicles! (Digg)

  • If you're having a bad day, or even better if you're having a good day watch this video and it will make you feel (even) better. Thanks PS22! (BuzzFeed)

  • Who knew there were so many websites devoted to pizza. When I want pizza I like to eat it and not necessarily look it up on the web but here are The Best Pizza Websites! (Urlesque)

The Pizza Business Is Serious Business

Posted by Cory Cavin January 15, 2010 5:00 PM

Coming soon to an internet near you is the story of a man that has a dream of a pizza. I'm excited to see this whole story:

"Have you ever had a meat lovers?! Shut up."

Kerry Washington is on the Show Tonight and Wants You To Help Haiti!

Posted by Sara Schaefer January 15, 2010 3:30 PM

94097920.jpgThe lovely Kerry Washington is on the show tonight! She's an actress! She's played some memorable wives in film: Della Bea Robinson, Ray Charles' wife in Ray and Kay, Idi Amin's wife, in The Last King of Scotland. She's also played the bachelorette: Nikki in I Think I Love My Wife, and Alicia Masters in the Fantastic Four films. Before she was Kerry from Hollywood, she was Kerry from the Bronx - performing and studying theatre from a very young age. She's currently co-starring in David Mamet's new play on Broadway, Race. Tonight, one of the things Kerry will talk about is V-Day, a global charity committed to ending violence against women and girls. They have a safe house in Haiti - and she'll talk about the effect of the earthquake there. You can find out more at V-Day's site, and also help out Haiti by visiting This is important! Classy lady on SET!

What Was Your Favorite Game to Play Growing Up?

twister.jpgOn last night's show Jeremy Renner of The Hurt Locker stopped by to talk about the film, a film in which he defuses bombs in Iraq. Naturally we made the connection to have him play a game of Perfection with Jimmy to try to match the intensity of diffusing a bomb. To see this game being played brought back a lot of memories to games I used to play as a kid. What was your favorite game to play growing up?

Do you want to share some memories of playing these games as a kid or now? We'd love it. Let us hear it in the comments AND vote after the jump!

The Sleep Suit Makes Anytime Zzzzzzz's Time

Posted by Cory Cavin January 15, 2010 1:30 PM

I really love my naps at work (and if any supervisors are reading this, "naps" = "extra ad revenue generation projects"). But throwing a hoodie all the way over your head so it's pitch-ish black doesn't always do the trick. However, this does. Introducing the Sleep Suit:


That's right, it's a wearable cocoon of pillowy softness that provides for naps at the drop of a sleep hat (there's no such thing as a 'sleep hats'). There are also little open pockets if anyone needs to slip an office memo in there for you to wake up to. If anyone wants to send one of these to the Late Night offices for an upcoming We Get Stuff, I'm all for it. I will do that for you - wear it and sleep in it. A lot. Work time just became nap time. All the time.
