    “Why not celebrate the little things with champagne?” They’re not wrong about that.

    Isn’t the thug on the street one of Conan’s staff or writer? I think I’ve seen him in one of the skits.

      He was. Brian Stack joined "The Late Show" in 2015, and he's done a lot of skits for Colbert. My favorite recurring one is the two funny lawyers -- I wish I could remember their names -- who pop up doing bad commercials giving advice to crisis-ridden politicians.

  • Ladybug

    Absolutely hilarious! Just what you need from time to time - a good laugh. Thank you so much.


    Gaspiller ce breuvage divin en explosant des bouteilles sur un bowling !!! Quelle bande de barbares ! Du ketchup OK , mais pas du champagne .

    Hmmm...the fine folks over at Moët & Chandon must be cringing as you used a mock-up of a Dom Pérignon label for this skit.

    Rolling on the floor laughing at "christen a new book" thinking that couldn't be topped, only to see "christen a new bottle of champagne" and roll on the floor over again.

    Mmm, a canard is a joke/lie in French. April Fool’s is Canard d’Avril.


      @Daniella McGee Merci pour l'explication , je me demandais ce que signifiait cette histoire de canard ...( Canard-Duchêne est une marque de champagne réputée de la Montagne de Reims , aucun rapport avec le poisson d'avril ). En tout cas cette blague sur le masque est très bonne !

    • Daniella McGee
      Daniella McGee

      April Fools is Poisson D'Avril, though. Fish, not duck. Someone wrote a joke on Twitter about Canard D'Avril with the face mask in profile looking like a duck's beak. Canard D'Avril is a restaurant in Paris.

    In most cases I do celebrate opening a bottle of Champagne by opening another bottle. Looks like I got the right idea.

    I give you my two thumbs. Now that they are separated from my body, who can tell if they are thumbs up? I enjoyed the bit. Because of that i won’t send my thumbs. Please understand that they are pointed north (Sequestered box), thumbs up, unless you are Sami, then the map is inverted as if they rule the world. No, the intention is two thumbs up. Thank you for a few moments of peace. I enjoyed the segment. Shutting up now.

    Too much champagne ! 140 patients were administered saline solution instead of the Pfizer vaccine 💉 The authorities in Epernay conducted a probe into the incident. They didn’t disclose the reasons for the mixed up.

      @D Bone Well, there is a widow clapper (Clicquot), so why not a duck. Btw, one of the founders of Clicquot family was married to the daughter of a famous french statesman: Colbert.

      Are there a lot of widow ducks there?

    People with small hands may not be able to hold the bottle and pop the cork! 🍾 (Not that there’s much to celebrate because their lawyer and their lawyer’s lawyer just got raided by the FBI.)

      There's always ten bottle bowling and self defense. In fact, I have found not being a drinker is a great defense for unwanted attention!
