Jimmy Fallon Confronts the Poor State of the World the Only Way He Knows How: By Ignoring It Head-On
Poor Jimmy Fallon. All he wants to do is have a good time and play Fisher Price instruments with the Roots. And while that works out well most of the time, his carefree attitude must cause him some trouble when things get rough. What is he to do when the world goes (even more than usual) to hell? He’s not Jon Stewart, who can confront serious issues head-on, leaving them eviscerated in his wake. Which is fine, cause that’s not his job. But he also seems unable to pretend everything’s fine and focus on the comedy. He’s too nice to passively ignore the shit state of the world. So where does he fit in? What can he do?
Aggressively ignore it. Jimmy has found his special way of dealing with the world. If there’s nothing good happening, make some stuff up! He’s back with a new installment of “I’ve Got Good News and Good News,” in which real newscasters tell us stories we wish were real, about muffins and puppies. That’s world news, Fallon style.
