Late Night Snark: Barrels of No Fun Edition

"Look, I get that people need hobbies. But if my hobby caused over 45,000 deaths per year, I might think: Hmm, my full unfettered access to the tools of my hobby seem to be hurting people. Maybe I could handle a few extra guardrails. Look, I know nobody's listening to me. But responsible gun owners? Where the f*ck are you??? … If motherf*ckers like Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis can keep books out of school, they can keep guns out of school."
—Samantha Bee

"The school in Uvalde already had heavy locking doors, and that's how the killer kept the police out. The police had to get the janitor to give them the key to unlock it. Any other bright ideas, dumbass? Wouldn’t it be a shame if people started piling their old doors up on Ted Cruz's lawn? Oh, man, I'd hate to see that.

That's where we have to ask ourselves: do we really want to live in a society where anyone can legally buy weapons that the police are scared of?"
—Trevor Noah

"Georgia Republican senate candidate Herschel Walker said in an interview that he's never heard former president Trump say that the 2020 election was stolen. Even more troubling, he also said, ‘Who's this Herschel Walker I keep hearing about?’"
—Seth Meyers

"There are a growing number of nuns who are joining Tik-Tok to show what life in a convent is really like. Because when the Catholic church tries to connect with young people, it always goes well."
—Colin Jost, SNL

I can’t go see the new Downton Abbey movie because I’ll tear a hole in the white person continuum.
—Conan O'Brien on Twitter
