The most depressing book of all time is not about wars, plagues or poverty. (2:01)

AND I WAS AT BARNES & NOBLERECENTLY.

WHEN YOU STOP AND TAKE A LOOKAT ALL THE BOOKS,

THERE'S LIKE A LOT OF DEPRESSINGBOOKS OUT THERE, PEOPLE --

LIKE BOOKS ON WARS AND PLAGUESAND POVERTY.

BUT THEN I DISCOVER THE MOSTDEPRESSING BOOK OF ALL TIME.

IT'S ACTUALLYIN THE COOKING SECTION.

IT'S CALLED"VEGAN COOKING FOR ONE."

[ LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE ]

THAT'S DEPRESSING.

NO MEAT, NO FISH,NO DAIRY, NO FRIENDS.

SCREW IT! THROW IN THE TOWEL!

[ LAUGHTER,CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

IT'S DEPRESSING.

LITERALLY, ON THE BACKOF THE BOOK, IT'S LIKE,

"IF YOU LOVE'VEGAN COOKING FOR ONE,'

YOU'LL LOVE 'THE BELL JAR'BY SYLVIA PLATH."

IT'S JUST WRONG.

I READ, LIKE,THE MOST RIDICULOUS THINGS.

I WAS READING THIS NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC ARTICLE

ON MENSTRUAL HUTS.

ARE YOU GUYS FAMILIARWITH MENSTRUAL HUTS?

I ALWAYS WANTED TO SAY THAT.

THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENEDHUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO

IN SMALL TRIBES AND VILLAGES.

WHEN WOMEN HAD THEIR PERIODS,

THEY WERE LITERALLYREMOVED FROM THE VILLAGE,

AND THEY HAD TO SIT IN A HUTFOR A WEEK, RIGHT?

BECAUSE...

[ LAUGHTER,CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

...SERIOUSLY, 'CAUSE THE MENIN THE VILLAGE WERE LIKE,

"WE DON'T UNDERSTANDWHAT'S HAPPENING.

"YOU'RE CREEPY. YOU'RE DIRTY.YOU'RE A WITCH.

GET OUT."

SO, OBVIOUSLY,WE EVOLVED AS A SOCIETY,

AND WOMEN ARE LET BACKIN THE VILLAGE.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT?

I'M LIKE, "THAT COULD BEA RASH DECISION, PEOPLE."

I SAY, "BRING BACK THE HUTS."

THINK ABOUT IT.

I DON'T WANTTO HANG OUT WITH YOU.

YOU DON'T WANTTO HANG OUT WITH ME.

I DON'T WANT TO GO TO WORK.

HOOK ME UP WITH A HUT.LET'S DO THIS.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

YOU KNOW?

WE'LL GET SOME DIRECTV.

GET SOME DIRECTV, YOU KNOW,

SOME GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES,SOME MAGNUMS OF WINE.

LET'S HUNKER DOWN.SEE YOU IN FIVE TO SEVEN.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

THAT'S MY THEORY.
