ANSWERS BECAUSE I'M THE ONLYONE WHO TALKS.

THIS IS TIP OF THE HAT, WAGOF THE FINGER.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)(APPLAUSE)

FIRST UP ON THE,-- WORKINGON IT, IT SEEMS LIKE EVERY

DAY THE GOVERNMENT PASSESYET ANOTHER NEW

FREEDOM-KILLING REGULATION.

FIRST THEY TELL ME I HAVE TOWEAR A SEAT BELT.

THEN THEY TELL ME MY CHILDHAS TO RIDE IN THE CAR SEAT.

WHAT'S NEXT.

THE CAR SEAT HAS TO BEINSIDE THE CAR?

HE LOVES TO SEE THE WIND ONTHE FONTANELLE.

WELL, NOW GOVERNMENTREGULATORS ARE AT IT AGAIN.

>> THE FOOD AND DRUGADMINISTRATION REVEALS A NEW

PLAN TODAY TO CUT DOWN THEUSE ON ANTIBIOTICS IN FOOD

ANIMALS.

THE FDA CALLS OVERUSE OFANTI-BIOTICS A THREAT TO

PUBLIC HEALTH.

>> Stephen: THESE FDA-HOLESARE COMING AFTER-- THEY'RE

COMING AFTER A FOOD ANIMALSAS IF THERE'S ANY OTHER

KIND.

SO I'M GIVING A WAG OF MYFINGER TO THE FDA.

FIRST OF ALL ANTI-BIOTICSARE THE ONLY NUTRITION LEFT

IN OUR MEATS.

THAT AND THE BLUE DYE IN THEUSDA SAMPLE.

MY DOCTOR SAYS I'M TO THEGETTING ENOUGH SAP.

AND OUR LIVESTOCKS NEEDTHESE ANTI-BIOTICS TO GAIN

AS MUCH AS 3% MORE WEIGHT.

THAT'S HOW IT WORKS, FOLKS,YOU WANT TO GAIN WEIGHT

QUICKLY TAKE ANTI-BIOTICS.

YOU WANT TO LOSE WEIGHTQUICKLY YOU EAT UNREGULATED

BEEF.

HOW ELSE CAN YOU GET ANIMALSTO GAIN WEIGHT.

CHICKENS WON'T DRINK MUSCLEMILK.

I GOT THEM A STRAW ANDEVERYTHING.

NOTHING.

(LAUGHTER)NEXT UP, FOLKS I BELIEVE

CHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE.

EVEN THOUGH I'M PRETTY SUREMOST OF MY CHILDHOOD WAS IN

THE PAST.

I GOT SCREWED ON THAT ONE.

THAT'S WHY I'M GIVING A TIPOF THE HAT TO TOY

MANUFACTURERS FOR BRINGINGTHE TOYS OF TOMORROW TO THE

FUTURE PEOPLES OF TODAY.

>> FISHER-PRICE HAS RELEASEDTHE NEWBORN TODDLER APP

DIFFICULTITY SEAT.

A BABY BOUNCEY SEAT THATFEATURES A PLASTIC CASE

DESIGNED TO HOLD AN iPAD.

>> Stephen: OH, FOLKS, IWISH WE HAD THE APP-TIVITY

BABY SEAT WHEN I HAD MYFIRST CHILD.

I HAD TO SETTLE FROMPLOPPING HER IN FRONT OF THE

MICROWAVE.

MY DAUGHTER'S FAVORITE SHOWWAS SWANSON SALISBURY STEAK

FOR 10 MINUTES ON DEFROST.

IT HAS A SURPRISE ENDING.

ABOUT AN HOUR LATER.

NOW SOME PEOPLE ARE AFRAIDTHAT PUTTING AN iPAD IN

FRONT OF AN INFANT MIGHT BEHARMFUL IN SOME WAY.

BUT DON'T WORRY YOU CAN LOCKYOUR iPAD INTO THE CASE

PROTECTING YOUR DEVICE FROMBABY'S STICKY FINGERS.

SEE, NOTHING IS GOING TOHURT YOUR PRECIOUS DARLING.

AND THAT'S NOT THE ONLY WAYTO DOCK BOTH YOUR iPAD AND

YOUR CHILD.

>> AS A MOM, I KNOW HOWDIFFICULT POTTY TRAINING IT

BE.

IT CAN BE A LITTLE EASIERNOW WITH THE BRAND-NEW

I-POTTY THIS POTTY TRAININGSEAT FEATURES A SPECIAL

STAND TO SECURELY HOLD THEiPAD WHICH KIDS ALREADY

LOVE.

SO THEY CAN PLAY WITH APPS,READ BOOKS OR WATCH VIDEOS.

ALL WHILE POTTY TRAINING.

(LAUGHTER)>> Stephen: I-- I WANT ONE.

I HAD NO IDEA YOU COULD USEAN iPAD ON THE TOILET.

I GENERALLY NEED ALL FOURLIMBS FOR STABILITY.

AGAIN, SALISBURY STEAK.

AND WHAT A GREAT TOOL FORTRAINING THE KIDS.

THEY'LL FOREVER ASSOCIATETHE iPAD WITH POOPING.

JUST AVOID BRINGING THEMINTO AN APPLE STORE.

FINALLY, FOLKS, THERE IS NOGREATER FAMILY TRADITION

THAN GATHERING TOGETHER ANDPLAYING BOARD GAMES.

REMEMBER THE FAMILY THATPLAYS TOGETHER, STAYS

TOGETHER BECAUSE A SINGLEGAME OF RISK CAN LAST

DECADES.

IT WILL BE A COLD DAY INHELL BEFORE MY SISTER-IN-LAW

SHARON GETS HER GRUBBY PAWSON IRKUTSK, THE GATEWAY TO

CAME CHAT SKA.

-- KAMCHATKA.

BUT FOLKS THESE FUN GAMESAREN'T ALL FUN AND GAMES.

THEY'RE ALSO EDUCATIONAL.

THINK OF ALL THE SPANISHLEARNED -- WORDS I LEARNED

FROM PLAYING UNO.

(APPLAUSE)>> HOW MANY?

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)I LEARNED ONEO.

(LAUGHTER)BUT FINALLY, THERE IS A GAME

TO TEACH OUR KIDS WHAT THEYREALLY NEED TO KNOW.

>> IT'S THE NEW GAME OFGUESSING LOGOS WHEN YOU DRAW

T DESCRIBE IT, DO IT ORREVEAL IT PICK AN ACTION,

SET THE TIMER AND GO.

>> OH.

>> NOW WHAT.

>> REALLY, DO IT, DESCRIBEIT OR REVEAL IT.

LOGO AND ALL NEW LOGO PARTY.

THE BRANDS YOU KNOW, THEGAMES YOU LOVE.

>> Stephen: IT'S JUST LIKECHAR ADDS OTHER THAN ACTING

OUT MOVIES AND TV SHOWSYOU'RE PAYING MONEY TO MEM

ORIZE CORPORATE MARKETING.

THAT'S WHY I'M GIVING A BIGTIP OF THE HAT TO LOGO

PARTY.

JUST DO IT, IT'S GREAT.

MAYBE IT'S MAYBELLINE.

FOLKS IT IS HUGE.

>> FOLKS, IT USED TO BE SOHARD TO FIND ADVERTISEMENTS.

YOU HAD TO SIT THROUGHBORING TELEVISION SHOWS OR

LOAD AN INTERNET VIDEO OR BESOMEWHERE IN AMERICA.

WITH LOGO PARTY IMAGINE THEFUN YOU'LL HAVE GUESSING IF

THAT'S THE G LOGO FROM GUCHIOR C LOGO FROM CHANNEL AND

THEN FEELING BAD ABOUTYOURSELF THAT YOU CAN'T

AFFORD EITHER ONE.

THE GAME ENDS WHEN ONE PLAYERR DRAWS THE CORD FOR THE

LOGO PARTY LOGO FORCINGEVERYONE TO ACT OUT ALL THE

BRANDS IN LOGO PARTYSIMULTANEOUSLY CREATING A

CORPORATE SYNERGY BLACK HOLETHAT SUCKS IN YOUR ENTIRE

FAMILY UNTIL SOMEBODYREALIZES THE BLACK HOLE

LOOKS JUST LIKE THE LOGO FOROAKLEY SUNGLASSES.

YOU WIN.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK AFTERTHESE LOGOS.

WELCOME BACK, THANKS SOMUCH.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, MYFIRST SHOW OF 2014, AND IN

THIS NEW YEAR ALL OF US AREMAKING NEW AREA'S

RESOLUTIONS.

PERSONALLY I JOINED AGYM-BORE.

I USUALLY DO SIX REPS OFPARACHUTES AND TWO SETS OF

BOUNCEY BALL FCHLOE IS NOTHOGGING IT.

I'M COOLING DOWN HERE, CHLOE,LET ME WORK IN.

BUT FOLKS, WHILE I'M OUTTHERE GETTING SKINNY,

AMERICA'S DEVIANTS AREROLLING A FATTIE, JIM?

>> SOME COLORADOANS HAVE ALOT TO CELEBRATE ON JANUARY

HUNDREDS LINED UP TO GET IT.

OTHERWISE KNOWN AS A FULLNELSON.

NATION, THIS NEWS, THIS NEWSNAUSEATED ME SO MUCH THAT I

MIGHT QUALIFIED FOR MEDICALMARIJUANA.

CAN SOMEONE CHECK ON THAT.

YOU CAN GET ON THAT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AMERICA'S MORAL CORPS ISBEING GUTTED AND THE REST OF

OUR MORAL APPLE IS BEINGMADE INTO A BONG.

HOW DARE, HOW DARECOLORADOANS SPEND JANUARY

1st RUINING THEIR BODIESWITH WEED WHEN THEY SHOULD

BE AT HOME VOMITING ALL THEBOOZE FROM NEW YEAR'S EVE

LIKE GOD INTENDED.

AND THANKFULLY-- (APPLAUSE)

YES.

WE HAVE SOME VOMIT FANS HERETONIGHT THANKFULLY SOME

PATRIOTS ARE STANDING UP ANTHEY'RE NOT JUST IGNORANT

BUZZ KILLS THEY'REEXPERIENCED BUZZ KILLS LIKE

"NEW YORK TIMES" COLUMNISTDAVID BROOKS WHO WROTE FOR A

LITTLE WHILE IN MY TEENAGEYEARS MY FRIENDS AND I

SMOKED MARIJUANA.

IT WAS FUN.

I HAVE SOME FOND MEMORIES OFUS ALL BEING SILLY TOGETHER.

I THINK THOSE MOMENTS OFUNINHIBITIED FROLIC DEEPENED

OUR FRIENDSHIP.

YES.

DAVID BROOKS GOT HIGH.

WHICH LEAD TO UNINHIBITIEDFROLIC.

SOMETIMES IT BORDERED ONUNSTRUCTURED MERIMENT, EVEN

UNFETTERED JOCULARITY.

BUT THIS COLUMN WAS MORETHAN JUST ESTABLISHING HIS

STONE-COLD STREET CRED.

HE ALSO RAPPED SOME POSITIVEYOUTH MESSAGING ABOUT THE

DANGERS OF LEGALLIZATIONSAYING I THINK BEING STONED

IS NOT A PARTICULARLYUPLIFTING FORM OF PLEASURE

AND SHOULD BE DISCOVERAGEDMORE THAN ENCOURAGED.

AND THAT COLORADO ISNURTURING A MORAL ECOLOGY IN

WHICH IT IS A BIT HARDER TOBE THE SORT OF PERSON MOST

OF US WANT TO BE.

SO LET THAT BE A LESSON TOYOU KIDS.

YOU KEEP SMOKING WEED, YOUKEEP RAPPING WITH YOUR

FRIENDS, YOU'LL NEVER GROWUP TO BE DAVID BROOKS.

AND DAVID'S NOT THE ONLYFORMER POT HEAD WHO WANTS TO

KEEP WEED ILLEGAL.

SO DOES "THE WASHINGTONPOST" RUTH MARCUS WHO WROTE

IN AN OP ED, OUR KIDS WILLNOT BE BETTER OFF WITH

ANOTHER LEGAL MIND ALTERINGSUBSTANCE.

WELL SAID.

KIDS DON'T NEED ANOTHERLEGAL MIND ALTERING

SUBSTANCE, IN SCHOOL WITHTHEIR ATEROL.

AND LIKE BROOKS, FOLKS, RUTHADMITS TO BEING MORE THAN

JUST ROOMMATES WITH HERFRIEND MARY JANE CONFESSING

I HAVE DONE MY SHARE OFINHALING.

NEXT TIME I'M IN COLORADO IEXPECT I WILL CHECK OUT SOME

BUBBA KUSH.

WHY NOT.

WHY NOT.

OTHER THAN THE COLUMN YOUJUST WROTE.

I APPLAUD MARCUS AND BROOKSFOR TAKE A STIRM STANCE

AGAINST LEGALIZING THE POTTHEY SMOKED.

I ASSUME THEY'RE GOING TOTURN THEMSELVES INTO THE

POLICE NOW AND SERVE THEIRKIND HOPEFULLY THAT WILL

KEEP THEM FROM EVER SMOKINGAGAIN BECAUSE THEY MIGHT GET

HIGH AND WRITE SOMETHINGREALLY CONFUSING.

WELL AN RIGHT BACK
