“It’s Day 71 of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. They just did a poll that says only 6 percent of Americans have a favorable view of BP, to which I say, 6 percent of Americans have a favorable view of BP? That’s 18 million people. Is it possible that 18 million Americans don’t know what the word favorable means?” – Jimmy Kimmel

“Forbes magazine published their most powerful celebrities list. Number one was Oprah Winfrey. I’m happy to be on the list, a little farther down. I’m between Flo, the Progressive Insurance lady, and the Salahis.” – David Letterman

“Doesn’t your heart break for Sandra Bullock? She and Jesse James officially divorced. You know who she’s dating? Gary, the Osama bin Laden hunter.” – David Letterman
