Funny Lite: Roundup of Late Night Jokes and Videos - 8 Dec 2010

Check out how the comedians view WikiLeaks and Santa.

From Denny:  WikiLeaks has permeated the world culture - even with comedians. After all, the political and diplomatic spheres are already known for "leaks" so why shouldn't everything else not be "on the table"? From Santa to a Nigerian corrupt government trying to arrest one of America's corrupt politicians, Cheney, the news has been profitable for American comedians ready to tell us a joke - that also happens to be the truth.

Of course, WikiLeaks fanatics continue to dominate the world conversation. WikiLeaks hacker and founder, Australian Julian Assange, threatened to release UFO documents if he was arrested by the British. Well, he was arrested by the Brits this week and still no UFO docs. Darn, I was looking forward to those embarrassing moments caught on tape and then documented on paper by paranoid governments. I guess we have to wait for the next Assange serial installment. This guy only releases low level information that he wasn't able to sell to various governments: the guys who would be embarrassed or the guys who want to embarrass them. Either way, ol' Assange has himself one profitable business. Now, why didn't you and I think of such a good gig in this down economy??? :)

You have to be careful of political correctness this time of the year. You can't call them 'Santa's elves' anymore. They're 'undocumented little people.'

Nigerian authorities are charging former Vice President Dick Cheney on a bribery scandal that involves Haliburton. That's when you know you're bad, when guys in Nigeria are accusing YOU of running a scam. Cheney has offered to be hooked up to a polygraph, as soon as he's unhooked from the defibrillator.

President Obama made a surprise visit to Afghanistan. Nobody knew he was going — except for the WikiLeaks guy.

Obama was going to have a meeting with Afghan President Karzai about the country's corruption, incompetence, and the wasting of American tax dollars. And that's just what Karzai was going to lecture Obama about.

What kind of name is WikiLeaks? It sounds like a Hawaiian guy that's incontinent.

The head of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, has gone into hiding. They say he's some place all alone where no one can find him. In fact, officials believe he may be hiding in a theater showing 'Burlesque.'

In a recent interview, Sarah Palin said we must stand with our North Korean allies. When she was corrected she said, 'Listen, geometry was never my strong suit.'

Federal workers have had their pay frozen for two years. The worst part is that the workers found out on WikiLeaks.

In a recent interview, Sarah Palin said we have to stand with 'our North Korean allies.' When told that North Korea is not our ally, Palin said, 'Sorry, I meant East Korean allies.'

From Jimmy Kimmel:

Between the made-up words and wildly shooting at anything with four legs, Sarah Palin is turning into Elmer Fudd.

WikiLeaks head Julian Assange says that if arrested, he will release secret documents, including information on UFOs. Arrest him, I want to see those documents.

On his book tour George W. Bush said, 'I was a Blackberry person, and now I’m an iPad person, so I hope you buy my book in hardcover and electronically.' So there you have it. George W. Bush doesn’t care about Blackberries.

WikiLeaks' Julian Assange said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should resign for ordering American diplomats to spy on their foreign counterparts. Thanks, creepy Australian guy who's wanted for rape in Sweden, we'll make a note of that.

Anderson Cooper did a show this week from inside that half-mile long drug smuggling tunnel between San Diego and Mexico. It's quite an amazing tunnel. It has lighting, ventilation, a rail car, a Starbucks...

The miracle of Hanukkah is that there was only enough oil to keep the menorah lit for one night and it lasted for eight nights. As far as religious miracles go, it's not exactly the resurrection of the Easter bunny, but it's fun for the kids.

Rep. Peter King says WikiLeaks presents a clear and present danger to our national security and should be branded a terrorist organization. Former Vice President Dick Cheney says we should waterboard the Internet.

Black Friday shopping can get very rough. You would think his ears would protect him from flying elbows.

From Jimmy Fallon:

American Airlines is going to offer happy hour on its flights in December. TSA is feeling us up. The airline is giving us free booze. We don't even have to make Friday night plans anymore. Just book a flight.

The White House is working on a new terror alert system. Instead of colors it's going to tell how handsie the TSA agents are going to be. Yellow stands for cop a feel. Orange stands for gentle junk swipe, and red stands for full-on sextickle.

From Jon Stewart:

The season wouldn't feel the same without people going out of their way to be offended by nothing." - on the "War on Christmas"

Legislation was enacted in 1993 designed to allow gay people to serve in the military as long as they told their colleagues that the ripped, topless and be-jean shorted fireman that they had in their foot locker was cousin Rico." – on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

WikiLeaks is the 250,000-page document dump, which like most post-Thanksgiving dumps, is fascinating to pick through. The site should not be confused with WookieLeaks, where a large furry creature pees on you.

WikiLeaks shows our allies are also funding the terrorists. So we’re like the commissionless middlemen in a war we’re waging against ourselves.
