Forget Syria, Bomb the Kardashian's Instead: Late-Night Comedy Roundup

God wants off the dollar bill, new “green” sex toys — and more.

After a misprint that created a problem with the “In God We Trust” motto, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing has to destroy 30 million $100 dollar bills. The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno joked that the misprint was that God himself didn’t want to be associated with a nation that is $16 million dollars in the red.

A South Korean newspaper is reporting that North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un’s former lover was executed by firing squad after the North Korean government found her guilty of disobeying indecency laws. Leno joked about the news, talking about Taylor Swift’s power.

Syria remains in the news for late-night TV hosts. Leno mentioned recent comments by Secretary of State John Kerry and noted the similarity to the buildup to the war in Iraq. On CBS, David Letterman brought popular culture into the mix, saying that the State Department announced military force would be deployed to the troubled marriage of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom.

Fast forward to 1:35 to see a new product possibly from the mind of former Vice President Al Gore.
