(Newser) – He just can't stop, apparently. Jay Leno kept up the NBC jokes last night amid speculation that the network is getting ready to replace him with Jimmy Fallon next year, reports Entertainment Weekly. The latest offerings:

  • “Doctors in Canada were shocked after pulling a three-inch knife blade from the back of a 32-year old man. The knife had been in there for three years! Imagine that, the guy had a knife in his back for three years. He must’ve worked at NBC, too.” (The Canada story is true.)
  • “Have you heard about this alleged feud that I’m having with NBC? I think it’s going to be OK. This is real: I had dinner last night with a bunch of NBC executives. To make it up to me, what they did, they are sending my wife and I on an all expenses paid Carnival cruise. How about that? So it looks like it’s going to be OK. Fantastic!”
