Michael Che: Why would he be a role model? Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal announced that he is ending his campaign for president after getting really tired of telling the other candidates that he was not the IT guy. It’s an innocent mistake.

Michael Che: How did you think that was gonna end?

Colin Jost: I thought it would be uplifting.

Michael Che: Ha-ha-ha. A housing developer in Arizona has created new apartments costing a $1,000 a month that are made out of shipping containers. It’s all part of his plans to trick Mexicans.

It’s not my plan.

This Thursday is Thanksgiving and in the spirit of cultural exchange between the pilgrims and the native Americans, Colin and I would like to have an exchange of our own.

Colin Jost: That’s right. That’s why we’ve each picked a joke that we wrote and we’re letting the other one tell it. Che, why don’t you go first?

Michael Che: I sure will, buddy.

Adolf Hitler’s Meni– Jesus! Adolf Hitler’s manifesto ‘Mein Kampf’ will return to German book stores in January after nearly 70 years. But I don’t know, I might just wait to read it on ‘Mein Kindle;.

Come on, man! That is a cheap one.

Colin Jost: I know. That’s true but I bet you did not see it coming.

[Cut to Colin Jost. Thre’s a picture of caduceus at left top corner.]

Michael Che: Alright. [laughs] Just tell your joke, man.

Colin Jost: Okay.

Michael Che: This is the one you wrote for me?Yeah.

Colin Jost: Alright. A team of doctors will soon perform a surgery that uses muscle and skin from a man’s arm to give him a new penis which he was born without. And before the man with no penis goes into surgery, let me just say this, “Good luck, Colin.” [Picture changes to Colin Jost]

Now that’s not…

[Cut to Colin Jost and Michael Che]

Michael Che: Be thankful for what you got, Colin.

Colin Jost: that’s not the spirit.

Michael Che: Happy Thanksgiving bud. [laughing] [Cut to Colin Jost]

Colin Jost: Don’t encourage him.
