I really do.

Like, I worry about--you know, "catfish,"

like, in Catfish--you know that?

That's another MTV show.

I like what MTV's doingright now, and...

[laughter and applause]


I--like, if you gettricked on the internet,

is what being "catfished" is,and the big, famous story

was Manti Te'o,the football player

that believedin the fake girlfriend.

And when I saw that,I was like, "I get it.

I would fall for that."I knew I would.

I mean, I'm 35.

I still do not sleepwith socks on

because my dad told me my feetcan't breathe when I was a kid.

I still believe that,

so you bet I could talk toa fake woman for quite a while.

A long time.

I almost joined the Armywhen I was 18

just because they called.

That was the only reason.

I thought I got picked.

I was like, "Oh, wow.This is an honor."

Like, uh, "Huh."

[laughter and applause]

I also signed up fora JCPenney credit card at 18.

'Cause they called,and I was like,

"Man, this day is gettingcrazier and crazier.

"I would love it.I would love a credit card.

"I just got calledfor the Army.

I'll go get some stuff."

My mom had to go get meout of all of that.

My mom had to call the Armyand JCPenney in the same day.

She was like,"He's not doing any of this.

He got to the phone quickerthan he usually does, so..."


The J--just so you know,the JCPenney credit card

was the tougherto get out of,

if you want to know at all.
