The following are “jokes” from Jay Leno’s monologue of Monday November 7th 2005.
- “This is now the twelfth day of rioting in France. They have been rioting for almost two weeks. And France has still not surrendered. That’s like a record.
- Things are so bad in France, they’re asking the Germans to come back.
- The rioters are said to be upset because they are immigrants who have been treated poorly by the French. What? French people treating foreigners rudely? I can’t believe that – stop the presses. Join the club.”
These recurring themes were echoed by many other late night comics including Rob Corddry of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
