Mistress Number 15: Hi, Seth! Hi!
Seth Meyers: Hi, there. So, start at the beginning: How did you get involved with the superstar athlete?
Mistress Number 15: Oh, first of all, Seth, I didn’t even know he was an athlete — I just knew he was super rich. And I didn’t know he was married.
Seth Meyers: But, eventually, you found out he was married?
Mistress Number 15: Oh, sure, sure! But, by then, I also knew he was superfamous, soooo… what was I supposed to do?
Seth Meyers: Not have an affair with him?
Mistress Number 15: Yeahhhhhh, it’s just really hard not to have an affair with someone you’re having sex with. Does that make sense?
Seth Meyers: No… okay…
Mistress Number 15: But, Seth, you also have to understand that it was more than sex.
Seth Meyers: Oh, it was?
Mistress Number 15: Oh, sure, sure! I mean, he would do the most romantic things, Seth. Like, sometimes he would text me. [ she leaves it hanging ]
Seth Meyers: Oh. Is that it? Okay. So, uh, what was your reaction when all those other mistresses were revealed?
Mistress Number 15: Well, at first… I just thought they were me in different outfits and hair. But then I found out they were their own people.
Seth Meyers: Right. And how did you feel when you knew it wasn’t just you?
Mistress Number 15: Uhhhhh, what’s the word for, like, when you’re mad?
Seth Meyers: Mad.
Mistress Number 15: Yeah, that’s it! I was mad! I couldn’t believe he would cheat on me!
Seth Meyers: [ perplexed ] But he was already cheating on his wife with you.
Mistress Number 15: Oh, for sure, sure! But I thought I was special.
Seth Meyers: Why?
Mistress Number 15: Because he was texting me, and — I don’t know — I wear tank tops.
Seth Meyers: You sure do, but why the need to go public?
Mistress Number 15: Well, I just felt like if I waited, I would be known as Mistress 16, or 17 — and, at that point, people would think I was a slut!
Seth Meyers: Mistress Number 15, everyone.
Mistress Number 15: Sure, sure! Sure!

Seth Meyers: So, Billy, how do you feel about the settlement?
Billy Smith: I am very happy about this $3.4 billion. Once it has been divided amongst the native american nations, we are all to get a check for $1,000. $1,000? These days, it is not even enough to by a kawahugajusi! [ light laughter ] Kawahugajusi is the yellow resin extracted from the great birch tree. Yellow resin… the great birch tree. It’s gone up in price, is the joke there.
Seth Meyers: I see… I see. Very funny.
Billy Smith: So! Is anyone here married? yes, marriage is difficult. My wife, she said I need to lose weight. I say to her, “If you want me to lose my appetite, just keep preparing more of your watakiputihiti!”
Seth Meyers: [ confused ] What?
Billy Smith: Watakiputihiti — it is a meal made with corn mash and rabbit lips. Corn mash and rabbit — not very tasty. What else? Oh, yes! Money is very tight these days on the reservation. Instead of wearing hand-me-downs, my daughter has to wear handpackanayuta! [ he jumps in Seth’s face ] Handpackanayuta — those are snow shoes made from the quills of a porcupine. [ he laughs ] Not comfortable. Porcupine quills. They exist, by the way. By the way, these joke, they kill on the reservation!
Seth Meyers: I’m sure they do.
Billy Smith: They’re on the floor. What else? What else? What else? Oh, yes. I see this new movie, “Avatar”, is coming out. Did you see that, sir?
Seth Meyers: I did! I did do that!
Billy Smith: Is it me, or is the size of soft drinks becoming too large at the concession stand? I mean, what do I look like, a wahatayuiwaha? [ he holds an open-mouthed pose ] You don’t know the reference, do you?
Seth Meyers: No…
Billy Smith: The swollen gullet of a skunk.
Seth Meyers: Ah!
Billy Smith: A play on words. Well, uh — that’s my time, I’m getting the flame.
Seth Meyers: You’re getting the flame!
Billy Smith: On behalf of all my people, I say to you all: Wakatungamakatingagi!
