1. Note, that last one is actually fake :-)

The Late Show apparently put that Merkel/Trump pic in there. She reads something about "Eierkratzer" which translates to "eggs scratcher", but we use "eggs" in the same way you use "balls" for the male body parts, so that's why she bursts out laughing. Apparently it's some kind of technique for .. I don't know, turning actual eggs into art? https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eierkratzen


Also, her dialect indicates this is not German TV, but from Austria.

4. He really has been on fire this week!

Not that there's been any shortage of material - the issue is that there's so much, and having to keep up!

And Lawrence O'Donnell continued the discussion:

I started posting the late night comedians I usually watch - to keep my sanity - after I timed out of MIRT the last time. I figured we needed more humor here these days...

7. Thank you!

There's never enough humor these days. Which is why I always try and end my night with something funny now. My soul needs recharging before bed.

I was thinking of you in MIRT tonight when I a spammer.

8. These days, we sure need all we can get

Like the old days with Jon Stewart's Daily Show, the news isn't as tough to take with a little - or a lot of humor! And Colbert has really become a master at it.

And I have wondered how things were going - those spammers love to show up in the wee hours. I used to think they were trying to sneak by us, but since we see so many from other parts of the world, this is likely regular "working hours" for them...
