[ laughter ] isn't that cool? [ light laughter ] i thought that was cool. i don't know if you heard this, but detectives from portland, oregon, have interviewed al gore over sexual misconduct allegations from a masseuse. he said, "i did not have sexual relations with that woman." oh, my god, it's happening again.

12:41 am
after about 5 minutes when both detectives fell asleep. [ laughter ] [ as gore ] "then she massaged my arm. [ laughter ] and then she moved down to the gluts and then" -- some sad news, you guys. ivy bean, the world's oldest twitter user has died at the age of 104.

[ cheers and applause ] it's a fun thing. a lot of fun. i like twitter. a lot of times on twitter, these weird lists get started, where people tweet out topics with a pound sign in front of them. on twitter, they call it a hash tag. stuff like "#what not to do on a first date." or "#remember 2nd grade." and then everyone responds to these hash tags and gives their two cents about what not to do on a first date, or a funny memory about 2nd grade. so last night, we tried something cool. during the show, i went on twitter, and i started a hash tag called "if i had a super power," and i asked you guys at home to tweet out some super powers that you wish you had.
12:44 am
for example, i tweeted out "the ability to float to work, not fly. it's like air skating." [ laughter ] i figured that would be a cool super power. get a good momentum and float for a block. [ light laughter ] not a crazy super power, but it's something. >> steve: super none the less. >> jimmy: thank you. anyways, you guys sent in thousands of tweets, and i was watching the tweets come in all night long. in fact, at one point, it was even a trending topic in miami.

[ laughter ] i don't know why he wants to punch a shark. but go for it. @mikebroberg, he says, "i would have sponges for hands so doing dishes would be easy and no one would ask me to drive them places." [ laughter ]
12:46 am
"i don't want sponge hands driving me anywhere!" [ light laughter ] an interesting super power. @johnwyatt1, he says, "i would see dead people like bruce wilkins in 'six senses.'" [ laughter ] really close. can we see that again? "bruce wilkins in 'six senses.'" [ light laughter ] "i see dead people like bruce wilkins." yeah, so close on that one. @jamesnotlames said, "i would have the ability to eat an infinite number of dino chicken nugs, so i could really dominate salad bar at sizzler." [ laughter ] that's a great superpower right there, man. @juliop74, he said, "i would be super slappa fool. there's too many fools that need a good slapping." [ laughter ]
12:47 am
[ cheers and applause ] super slappa fool. what does he do? he slaps fools. @zcovert1109, he says, "i wish i had the power to turn into cute animals, so the girl at baskin-robbins would finally notice me." [ laughter ] [ audience aws ] dude, just be yourself. [ laughter ] @atomicradio, he says, "the ability to bring back the band jesse and the rippers from 'full house.' great band. great band." [ cheers and applause ] i love how he said great band twice. "great band." we have to bring back ranger joe and mr. woodchuck too. [ light laughter ] for dave coulier. last one here from the_realpetern. he says, "i would rob a bank and take the money to open a bank and rob that bank, then get money from insurance and relax."

[ laughter ] then they just cut it off. doesn't seem to happen to you a lot. >> jimmy: but when i first
1:06 am

[ light laughter ] i had a couple that just bombed and it brings out your inner johnny carson. like, "okay --" [ laughter ] it was like being at a dinner party and saying something, and everything's silent. "hey, how are you doing?" >> jimmy: and there was a way for to you continue the story. your dad wasn't even laughing? >> is this thing on? >> jimmy: yeah, exactly. i worked with your brother, andrew on "fever pitch" and "whip it." and owen. was it fun growing up with all brothers? >> yeah, it was -- we had a really good time. >> jimmy: you used to play paint ball and stuff like that.

[ light laughter ] our parents would leave, and we'd have these bb gun wars, where the only rule was you don't shoot above the neck. we all kind of thought, "but the neck is the best place to shoot somebody." [ laughter ] and my brother, andrew, still has a bb right between his two knuckles. from like '84. [ laughter ] we would -- i had a friend over who -- he was like an only child. a nice guy. i said, we're gonna have a bb gun war now with my brothers. don't trust anybody, including me after this conversation. if anybody says, 'the war is over, come out,' don't come out. if anybody says you have 10 seconds, run.
1:08 am
i'm not going to shoot you. don't believe them. never give up your gun." we'd have a rule -- you'd have these pump bb guns where you can't pump it more than twice. you would just hear clack clack clack clack. we would get it up to basically like a .22.

that actually wasn't for white people. no, because black people, we're like, "that's the last hope. he can't do wrong to us." i remember when the voting was coming up and white people were coming to black people. they were serious, too. they were like, "so you are going to vote for obama just because he's black," and we were like, "uh, yeah. [ laughter ] that's the reason why i'm voting." but i love him. he will be on "the view." so i think that's really cool. but i love the way this dude talks. he's smooth. you know what i mean? he won the election, because of the debates. he was just freestyling. they were like, "president obama, what do you think about the word it?" and he'd just be smooth, you know. [ as obama ] "well, first, let's consider 'it.'" [ laughter ] "if 'it' means lowering interest rates so that americans can afford homes, then 'it' is plausible. then 'it' is american." [ laughter ] "if 'it' is too legit to quit." anyway, that's my take on it. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]

>> jimmy: you have a lot in common with obama. >> i do. i have a very diverse background. i started -- i was just talking about this -- i was adopted by a white family from wyoming. true. no one is laughing. [ light laughter ] no, it's true. i moved and lived in ft. collins, colorado, and i moved to washington, d.c., and saw my first black person, or someone that looked like me. [ light laughter ] and we went to the swimming pool and the black kids kicked our ass, and they were like, "white cracker, white cracker, white cracker." so i got home to my mom, and i was like, "who are these white crackers? we got to stay away from them." [ laughter ] "because, you know, they're dangerous people." and she was like, "well, that's what people that look like you call people that look like us." and i was like, "well, i know we look different, but i didn't know that different." so, we moved to an all white neighborhood and the white people kicked our asses. and the first time i heard the "n" word. and it was like "n" this, "n" that. so i went home to my mother, and i said, "who are these ns? we need to stay away from them,

because they ain't go good." [ laughter ] and she said, "that's what people like us call people that look like you." and i was like, "well, i don't like that." and then i finally moved to an integrated neighborhood, and i got chased by some white guys that ran behind these really big black dudes, and the white guys ran the other way, i have been black ever since.
