11:40 pm
that during the 2008 election, she predicted russia would invade the ukraine. then john mccain said, "well at least one of us made a good call." [ laughter and applause ] and get this. secretary of state john kerry went on "meet the press" yesterday. and actually criticized russia for its action in the ukraine. he said, quote, "you don't just invade another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interest." then he said, "i mean, we stopped doing that, like, months ago. okay. we don't do that anymore." [ applause ] that's so 2013, man. what? [ laughter ] i swear, back in '07. >> steve: -- that's what joe told him. >> jimmy: and while all of this is going on, president obama is staying very busy. that's right. on friday president obama took a selfie with bill nye the science guy and astrophysicist neil degrasse tyson. i heard that photo set the record for the least retweeted photo of all time. very interesting. in the same week --all this stuff was happening.
11:41 pm
we live in a world of technology. >> steve: wow. >> jimmy: i was reading about this, this doesn't really surprise me. a new survey has found that almost half of dog owners admit they're spending more money on their dogs than on they are on their significant others. [ laughter ] i tried to ask my wife if that's true, but she and our dog were out to dinner. and i was like, "well, can you guys at least bring home a a jimmy bag so i can have some?" [ laughter ] and then i peed on the carpet. [ cheers ] i'm a mess. i wanted to show them that i was upset! don't go out without me! and finally, this is great. i saw this clip on youtube today. it's really funny. a local news reporter in philadelphia was standing on the side of the road covering today's big snowstorm. when a plow drove by and just nailed him with snow. watch this. >> reporter: we only had one
11:42 pm
summer with the phillies. there's goes a couple of plows demonstrating what i -- [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: don't worry. the reporter is safe, while the driver of the snow plow was injured from high fiving all of his co-workers. [ cheers and applause ] we have a great show for you tonight! give it up for the roots! ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: hey! welcome to "the tonight show." and i'm happy to be here tonight. i'm actually -- i'm happy to be alive. yeah. i -- this weekend i did the polar plunge in chicago. [ cheers ] if you guys have done it -- so, here's what happened. the mayor of chicago, i said something about him jokingly in the paper, in the "chicago sun-times." something like, i was afraid of him or something, because i am. i know.
11:43 pm
but just kidding around. and then, so he got on twitter. and i respect this mayor because he's involved with social media. and he tweeted out, he said -- "jimmy fallon, i think you should toughen up." he goes, "i challenge you to come to chicago and do the polar plunge." so, i don't know what that is. but i go, "yeah, i'm in." [ light laughter ] then i find out what it is. and it's -- yeah. so i went. i flew myself to chicago this weekend. went to chicago and, man. it was just unbelievable. these people are all out there doing that. i think they doubled the amount of normal people going or doubled the amount of donations. all the money went to special olympics. it was like 3,000 people there. [ cheers and applause ] it's a great cause. >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: people get out there. i mean -- israel idonije is doing it, with the mayor. he had this thing where the mayor asked all of these kids if they went to the library -- and read over 1.5 million books through the summer, that he would jump in the water. that's how it, how it started. so the kids read 2 million books. so now, he's like, "oh, great.
11:44 pm
now i got to go into this thing." so he dragged me into it. so anyways, i'm getting ready to go into it. i'm watching videos. people are sending me things and advice on how to do it. one guy is like, "jimmy, you know, i'm an arctic swimmer, you know, if you get in the water -- you're going to feel like you're having a heart attack." i just paused it right there. i go, "thanks for the advice, pal. appreciate it." and so i get there, and i -- i see these emts. not -- not ents. not ear nose throat doctors. [ light laughter ] you're not going get a sinus infection. you might die. that's what they're saying. you might die if you go in this thing. and there are two icebergs. and they had to get a bulldozer to plow out the ice before i jumped in the water. i mean this is insane. chicago didn't let me fool around. they didn't fool around this time. they had, like, a blizzard the night before. >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: it's like 9 degrees. i think the water was 30 degrees or something. >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: that's insane. and i'm going like, this is just nuts. so i go in and i go -- whew, whew -- i put on -- i took a ski hat
11:45 pm
off a kid. i didn't care. [ laughter ] i put it on. i'm -- ah -- ooh -- ah! you know? it was almost like, i felt like a wrestling thing. i'm like -- people are like, rooting me on. i am going, "why am i doing this? this is just awful." i go in. i hear you're only supposed to go up to your knees. and then you get on your knees and you fall back. it's only like that big. i get in up to here. and just go like, i don't even care. i just plunge back. >> steve: right. >> jimmy: and i went under. i went under, and like, a a couple bubbles came out. and -- i froze -- [ laughter ] and then i was thinking, "well, one of those ear nose and throat doctors will come get me. if i'm really dead, they'll fish me out of here." i just stand up and i took my hat off. and my hair immediately turned to icicles. [ laughter ] all ice. and i heard bagpipes. [ laughter ] >> steve: you thought were you in heaven? >> jimmy: well, i looked around. because if you're irish, the first thing you hear when you die is bagpipes. did anyone else hear this?
11:46 pm
am i and angel? this is how i went! one thing, i saw, here's rahm emanuel. here is the mayor getting out, after he plunged. that's what he looked when he came out. here's a picture of me when i came out of the water. [ laughter and applause ] [ cheers ] >> steve: at least the tears warmed -- the tears thawed your eyes. >> jimmy: yeah, the tears thawed me out. yeah. i thought it was it. i thought it was the end. it was unbelievable. but when it was all over, it was really, really cool. the mayor gave me this -- he presented me with a a resolution here. and basically what they did was -- they officially named march 2014 to be "the tonight show starring jimmy fallon" month in chicago. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] thank you to mayor emanuel. thank you to the special olympics. the people of that great city. and all of those awesome kids that read all of those books.

12:06 am
he said victoza works differently than pills, and comes in a pen. and the needle is thin. victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face, lips, tongue or throat, fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat, problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck.
12:07 am
serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal. stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need, ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by most health plans.
