Jimmy Kimmel Skewers ‘Pan-dimwits’ Taking Horse Dewormer

Welcome to Best of Late Night, a rundown of the earlier evening’s highlights that permits you to sleep — and lets us receives a commission to look at comedy. Here are the 50 finest films on Netflix proper now.

Still Horsing Around

Jimmy Kimmel returned to his present on Tuesday after taking the summer season off.

“I leave you people alone for two months, you start taking horse worm medicine?” the host mentioned.

Kimmel provided a reputation for individuals who have taken the drugs, ivermectin, as a supposed treatment for Covid-19: “pan-dimwits.” There is not any proof that the drug is efficient towards Covid, and the well being authorities have warned that it may pose a critical hazard to people.

“So you will probably still get Covid, but on the bright side, you could win the Preakness.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“Poison-control centers across the country have seen a spike in calls from people taking livestock medicine to fight the coronavirus, but they won’t take the vaccine, which is crazy. It’s like if you’re a vegan and you’re like, ‘No, I don’t want a hamburger — give me that can of Alpo instead.’” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“Worst of all, it tastes yucky. Luckily, the internet is loaded with advice on how to make it more palatable, including mixing it with jellies or eating it as a sandwich. Or throw it on your roast beef — technically, it is horsey sauce.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“In fact, it says right on the label: ‘For a horse’s [expletive].’” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“One of the reasons these Sea Biscuits are opting for ivermectin is because they don’t trust ‘big pharma.’ Which is fine, I guess, except for the fact that ivermectin is made by Merck, which is the fourth-largest pharmaceutical company in the world.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“Listen, if a pharmaceutical company says, ‘Please don’t take the drug we’re selling,’ you should probably listen to them. Or you could just go with a TikTok posted by a disgraced veterinarian instead.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“Meanwhile, these poor horses are like, ‘Hey, I have worms — I need that stuff. There are worms in my butt, do you understand?’”— JIMMY KIMMEL

The Punchiest Punchlines (Worst Butt Dial Ever Edition)

“And finally, I read that surgeons successfully removed a Nokia cellphone from a man’s body after he swallowed it whole. The kids were so embarrassed. They’re like, ‘Dad, please swallow an iPhone next time.’” — JIMMY FALLON

“He swallowed a Nokia phone. More like Choke-ia phone.” — JAMES CORDEN

“His phone got wet and he needed to put it in rice immediately, but he had eaten all of his rice.” — JAMES CORDEN

“Even worse, after four days, the man still had zero notifications.” — JIMMY FALLON

“That’s why I always buy the extra-long 10-foot charge cord, always. I know it’s a little bit more, but you’re happy you paid that money when you’re like, ‘Got it!’”— JAMES CORDEN

“When reached for a comment, the man said he didn’t swallow it — it was just the worst butt dial ever.” — JIMMY FALLON

Amber Ruffin challenged Texas on its new abortion ban and made the case for a federally funded pedicure on Tuesday’s “Late Night.”
