“The Winter Olympics are under way in Canada. Skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, these are not sports. They’re vacation activities. I feel like I’m watching someone’s home movies.” – Jimmy Kimmel

“They showed the biathlon today, a combination of cross-country skiing and shooting rifles, which is known to Sarah Palin as ‘commuting.’ ” – Jimmy Kimmel

“Today is the birthday of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il. And a lot of people want to get the guy gifts. I have a suggestion. You can’t go wrong with another pair of ladies’ sunglasses.” – David Letterman

“Bob Dylan performed at the White House last night in honor of Black History Month … Because, when you think of black history, you think of a mumbling, white, Jewish guy from Minnesota.” – David Letterman
