Ellen doesn't understand hunting, unless it's something you're proud of killing -- like a hunter. (3:55)

AND THEN I'LL BE FAMOUS

AND THEY'LL JUST SAY,"GO AHEAD, MS. DEGENERES, PLEASE

NO MATTER WHAT YOU'RE WEARING."

I'M TRYING TO SELL A TV SERIESRIGHT NOW TO A NETWORK.

KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED.

YOU KNOW HOW THEY'RE JUSTREHASHING OLD SHOWS ANYWAY.

SO MY IDEA, THINK ABOUT THIS--

FLYING NUN,THAT WAS A POPULAR SHOW.

I KNOW, THAT'S NOT BELIEVABLE.

BUT I'D BE FAIRLY RELIGIOUSAND I COULD JUMP REALLY HIGH.

( laughter )

SO HERE'S WHAT I FOUND OUTABOUT ANTS RECENTLY.

YOU EVER WATCH ANTSJUST CRAWLING AROUND?

SERIOUSLY, THIS ISA VERY IMPORTANT TIP.

YOU KNOW, THEY ALWAYSWALK IN THAT SINGLE LINE

AND THEN SOMETIMESTHEY'LL WALK OVER

AND PICK UP THEIR DEAD FRIENDSAND CARRY THOSE AROUND.

I'M PRETTY SURE THAT'S SO THEYCAN GET IN THE CAR POOL LANE

AND PASS UP THAT LINE.

( applause )

THANKS.

I DON'T KNOW FOR SURE.

I... DON'T KNOW.

THEY'RE CALLEDAN ARMY OF ANTS, YOU KNOW?

THAT'S FASCINATING TO ME

THAT THEY HAVE DIFFERENT NAMESFOR DIFFERENT GROUPS OF ANIMALS

LIKE THEY HAVE ARMY OF ANTS,PRIDE OF LIONS, SCHOOL OF FISH

RACK OF LAMB...

IT'S WEIRD.

I LOVE TO WATCH ANIMALS,NOT IN A SICK WAY

BUT I LIKE TO WATCH ANIMALSJUST WALKING AROUND.

I WAS IN DENVER,COLORADO, RECENTLY

JUST WALKING AROUNDTHE MOUNTAINS BY MYSELF.

IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL TO DO THAT.

JUST GET IN TOUCH WITH NATUREAND BE BY YOURSELF.

A LITTLE SOUND OF RUSTLINGLEAVES OR SOMETHING

I TURN AROUND.

TEN FEET FROM METHERE'S A FAMILY OF DEER.

THERE'S A MOTHER, FATHER,TWO LITTLE BABY DEER.

I THOUGHT,"OH, I WISH I HAD A GUN."

I JUST COULD HAVE-- BANG,BANG, BANG, BANG, DEAD.

JUST SHOT ALL OF THEMAND KILLED THEM.

WOUNDED ONE AND CHASED IT.

HOW FAR COULD IT GO?

IT WAS A BABY, BUT...

( laughter )

I DON'T UNDERSTAND HUNTING.

TO ME, I LOVE ANIMALS SO MUCH

THAT THE THOUGHTOF SHOOTING AN ANIMAL...

I MEAN, IT'S A POOR LITTLEINNOCENT ANIMAL

JUST STANDING AROUND THINKING LITTLE DEER THOUGHTS

LITTLE "I WONDERWHERE THE BERRIES ARE?

WHAT'S THIS ON MY HOOF?"

THEY ALWAYS PUT THEIR LASTEXPRESSION BEFORE BEING KILLED

ON THEIR WALL.

THIS GUY'S PROUD OF IT.

( chuckling )

"SHOT IT."

"KILLED IT.

"NO, IT WASN'T DOING ANYTHINGTO ME, JUST STANDING THERE.

WHAT'S YOUR POINT?"

( laughter )

I COULD SEE IF IT WASSOMETHING THAT YOU HATED

SOMETHING YOU'REPROUD YOU KILLED...

LIKE A HUNTER, ACTUALLY,NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT.

I MEAN...

( chuckling )

SHOT HIM.

I ASK PEOPLE WHY THEY HAVEDEER HEADS ON THEIR WALLS.

THEY SAY, "BECAUSE IT'SSUCH A BEAUTIFUL ANIMAL."

THERE YOU GO.

I THINK MY MOTHER'S ATTRACTIVE,BUT I HAVE PHOTOGRAPHS OF HER.

( laughter )

"WASN'T MOM PRETTY?"

"SHE HAD GREAT LEGS, TOO.

"THEY'RE IN THE NEXT ROOM.

COME ON."

THE DEER HEADS THATI FEEL SORRY FOR THE MOST

ARE THE ONES ON THE WALLSOF BARS OR RESTAURANTS.

THEY HAVE THE SILLYPARTY HATS ON THEM

SILLY SUNGLASSES,STREAMERS AROUND THEIR NECKS.

I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY THEY WEREAT A PARTY, HAVING A GOOD TIME.

( laughter )

THEY WERE JUST IN THERE DANCING,ENJOYING THEMSELVES.

♪ I'M TOO SEXY FOR MY ANTLERS,TOO SEXY FOR MY... ♪

"HEY, WHO INVITED THE GUYIN THE ORANGE VEST?"

OOH!

THAT'S ALL MY TIME.
