Thank you all. Thank you, and good evening. I always look forward to these dinners where I'm supposed to be funny -- [Laughter] -- intentionally. [Laughter] I'm really looking forward to hearing Cedric the Entertainer. I kind of think of myself that way. [Laughter] Cedric, did you hear that hilarious line I ad-libbed down in Arkansas?

A woman in a town meeting told me she was from DeQueen, and I said, "That's right next to DeKing." [Laughter] You've got to admit that's pretty good, Cedric. [Laughter] That's what you call sophisticated repartee. [Laughter] And then out in Montana, I told a joke about a cattle guard, which, to be honest, didn't get a very big laugh—actually, none.
