At a press conference, Secretary of State John Kerry spoke in French, which sounds impressive. But according to Fallon’s translation, Kerry’s words were unimpressive and relied on a limited understanding of the language. “My wife is ketchup master,” the joke translation said, which would be weirder if Kerry wasn’t married to Teresa Heinz.

Jack Lew has been confirmed by the Senate as the new treasury secretary. But he could be in danger of being laid off with those automatic spending cuts, Jimmy joked.

Dieter Gutboots and Chizz Dippler were among the representatives of some bygone 1980s stereotypes. James Spadge said that he could not digest solids as a child, which is definitely unique.

“I’m looking for a girl that can testify on my behalf,” Gutboots said. Pouch warned that he once had a heart attack, which he initially mistook for a panic attack. It’s hard to believe that video dating was once a trend, but I guess that’s what future generations will say about online dating.

“I’m sure some of those guys are still available,” Fallon promised at the end of the tape. What do you think is the best way to meet someone if you are single and looking for a relationship?
