over the past 17 weeks, but… [ Laughter ] …last call. [ Laughter and applause ] -That’s cold. How long have you’ve
been feeling this way? -Since the Revolutionary War. [ Laughter and applause ] -I can’t believe this. Is this because
of my slimy knees? [ Laughter ] -No, no, it’s not. We’re just — We’re just

by two scuba divers. [ Laughter ]
-Yeah. -And you were raised by llamas. [ Laughter and applause ] I enjoy —
I enjoy going out, and come home every night to
find you ghosting on the couch, watching YouTube videos of
Kim Kardashian eating bananas. [ Laughter, cheers, applause ] -I understand.
Well, I have something to tell you, too,
