Laugh till you cry at Jimmy Fallon’s thank you notes

Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC's "Late Night," has turned his popular thank you notes segment into a new book, "Thank You Notes." Read an excerpt.

Thank you post-Thanksgiving Dinner relaxation rituals, for being the one time when Uncle Gary can unbuckle his pants in front of the whole family and not get sent to jail.

Thank you people who give me homemade jam as a gift. What are we, Quakers? Exactly how much jam do you think I use? You know this is going to sit in my fridge for three years until I throw it out to make room for beer, right? Just checking.

Thank you horseradish, for being neither a radish nor a horse. What you are is a liar food. (I’m looking at you, too, Grape Nuts.)

Thank you people who say “Wow, you’re really photogenic,” for not saying what you really mean: “Wow, you’re really ugly in person.”
