David Letterman: Staff Photo
Some guy named Joe came out onto the stage and surprised David Letterman. He said that he was there for the staff photo. Letterman said that they take the photo in August and it’s only June. He was very confused. Joe said that he knows that, but he came in early because he wanted to get a good spot. He was so serious and awkward. It was incredible. This really just got me. I love it when things get uncomfortable. He eventually left and said he’d come back in August.

Late Show: POW Trade
Letterman talked about the recent POW trade. It’s very controversial and people can’t decide if it’s a good thing or a bad thing. Everybody’s going crazy. Letterman said that it’s the most controversial trade in the US since NBC traded Letterman to CBS. There are many sides to every story. The Taliban members that were traded were in Guantanamo Bay for a long time. Letterman said it would be terrible to be stuck behind them at airport security. I think he said that joke yesterday. He also said that they got sent back and were picked up in a stretch camel. They were treated like celebrities.
