    Why does Uncle Jay say that new videos are available each Monday, when they are really available Sunday? But wait… if they are available on Sunday, they are also available on Monday… and Tuesday, Wednesday, and.. well you got the idea.

    Maybe its a philosophical question, like, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody hears it, will your taxes still go up?

    Hi Oncle J:
    Insightful, serious stuff, arresting our attention through ingenious satire. I had to laugh!

    Hi Greg,

    I do believe Uncle Jay tells us his new video is available on Monday because it comes out to those of us who actually subscribe on late Sunday, when most little boys and girls are supposed to be in bed so they are bright and full of energy to go to school in the morning. Why are you still up and on the computer? I’m sick so I don’t have to get up early. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

    Thanks for sending in your question.


  5. Jen Singer Says:

    When my fifth grader read about the bailout’s price tag, he asked, “Do these people know what they’re doing?”

    I have Full Faith, Uncle Jay, that they don’t.

    Thanks for the Monday pick-me-up.

    Hi Jay.

    My name is Cash. I am almost 5 and my poppy is typing this for me because I can’t spell yet.

    I think you are funny and a lot more fun to watch than that guy on TV in the morning, (Matt Lauer). I like the weather man though, (Al Roker). Al is funny.

    Why don’t you have a weather guy? Maybe Al could do the weather for you on your show?


    [Hi Jay. This is Cash's poppy. I am ordering your DVD to give to Cash so I can get my laptop back.]

    Every week you bring us visually punctuated poetry that makes us laugh think and question our own pomposity. And all in 3 minutes without pause for laughter (like on the Daily show). It’s not just satire. It’s art. Someday soon, I hope it’s commerce, too.

  8. Confused Says:

    Uncle Jay, if we live in a democratic society, why is our government treating it like socialism? One day, will I have to give all my money to the government and let them decide who should have what part of it?

    Sincerely Confused

  9. Tony Says:


    I had to pause and read every line of that list you have scrolling at the beginning. i think I blew snot out my nose trying not to laugh when reading #7 (because I’m at work, and… well… I shouldn’t be watching you at work).

    As always, you are brilliant.

  10. Linda Says:

    This made me laugh out loud! You always seem to hit that nail right on the head. Thank you for bringing a chuckle to my life every Monday – I don’t peek at it on Sunday!!!!

    To tell you the truth i dont really have faith in the government let alone full faith. And giving money to the companies who make huge mistakes instead of giving money to the real problems in America is just sad.

  13. Maryann Rose Says:

    Hi Uncle Jay,

    Why is it that the Republicans are all mad that the President is spending money to help you and me, but they weren’t mad when the other President spent money on the banks?

    Shouldn’t this President be able to spend money how he wants to, just like the other one?

    I really enjoy your weekly video so much, I wish it was a daily video. Think you might have time for that?

    Your friend,

  14. Megan O Says:

    Hey Uncle Jay, I just discovered your videos a few weeks ago and I love them, they’re hilarious. or at least the parts i understand. Some of things you mention or refer to are confusing though. could you put links the articles where you find out all these things? It’d be really intriguing to learn more. :)

  15. kathy Says:

    LOL you are the Best, Uncle Jay. if i had a trillon dollars extra i’d give it to you.
