As more and more people self-isolate due to the coronavirus, late-night hosts like Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert and Conan O’Brien continue to entertain America from the comfort of their own homes.
And for Fallon, that means dealing with either one of his daughters that happens to come sliding in…literally, they have an indoor slide.
As Fallon was just getting started on his second show from home, his youngest daughter came darting down the slide, climbed up onto his chair, then proceeded to treat her father like a jungle gym as he tried to deliver jokes. At one point, Fallon noticed something red smeared all over his daughter’s pants.
“What is all over you?” Fallon asked. “Strawberries,” she answered. “Strawberries?” Fallon followed up. “Did you roll in them or did you eat them?” Then, as if rolling in strawberries would be ridiculous, his daughter answered, “No, I wiped them on my pants.”
Fallon even had a joke that included an ingenious plan about using CVS receipts for toilet paper, but the first time around, his daughter wasn’t interested. She climbed on his head, barely even letting him get it out.
But, once no one was hanging on his head or jumping in front of the camera, Fallon got the whole joke out.
This time, with his daughter hanging from the slide instead, she actually found the joke funny. Or, more specifically, she thought “toilet paper” was funny.
