“You probably heard about this. Both President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden took some heat for flying separately to New York City last week because it was Earth Day, and they got heat for flying on two separate planes. Though in fairness, they can’t fly together because of security reasons. Or at least that’s what Obama told Biden.” – Jay Leno

“The U.S. Treasury unveiled the new version of the $100 bill last week. They needed to come out with a new one because, apparently, China has all the old ones.” –Jay Leno

“The title of Bush’s memoir is ‘Decision Points.” It narrowly edged out his original title, which was ‘My Bad.'” – Jimmy Kimmel

“Bush’s memoir is going to be titled ‘Decision Points.’ That sounds like the reward system that was used to get Bush to do things when he was in office, doesn’t it? ‘So, if I sign that paper with the law on it, how many decision points do I get? Like, five decision points, six? Last Wednesday, I got a silver star and a smiley face.'” – Jimmy Fallon
