    Norm can tell a long clean joke like they did back in the day, nobody can do this today. Everyone is in to much of a hurry.

    I've seen Jesus Christ. Believe, he is, all these things are happening before him and the end draws nye. Soon the dead will be called to life. But not until the messiah returns. Behold he comes quickly. Repent of your unbelief and call upon him that you may be saved. Jesus Christ is LORD. All Hail

This is the true God and eternal life. 1 John 5:20 ....,,,,,,,

    Please read this carefully ; Every one of us has sinned against God. We’ve lied, we’ve stolen, we’ve sinned sexually, and we’ve taken His name in vain; which makes us liars, thieves, fornicators and blasphemers ... Yet this is only four of our many transgressions . The problem is, we can never ‘outweigh’ our sin with good works because God is perfect in Holiness, meaning his standard is beyond our reach. He is also perfect in Justice, meaning, he will bring EVERY sin to light. The punishment for our sin is death, and Hell; a place of Eternal Fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth . Fortunately God is also perfect in Love; so 2000 years ago, he left his throne in heaven, and came to earth as a man named Jesus Christ. While here, he lived a perfectly righteous life, only to take the punishment that We deserved; Our sinless creator became Our sin, and endured a gruesome death on a cross for our sake . Right before he died, he said ‘it is finished’ .. meaning, the debt for our sins has been paid in full. And on the third day, he defeated death and rose from the grave. So now, we can go free from the wrath of God’s judgement not by earning it, but rather, as a free gift of grace .. Except gifts can be either accepted or rejected. So this is what you must do in response ; Humbly admit to God that you have sinned against him. Then, confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, and your Savior. ( Romans 10:9 ) . Do this, and you will be saved . If you do so sincerely, God will grant you a new heart which no longer finds comfort in sin, but instead desires to read and obey his word. He will also grant you Eternal life in his presence; The greatest pleasure on earth doesn’t even come close to what God is preparing for believers in the afterlife . You’ve been informed ; Now the choice is yours. What you do with this information will determine where you will be for ETERNITY.. Meaning, this is the single most critical decision you will EVER make . Jesus Christ awaits you this very moment. Do not put off surrendering your life to him, because your tomorrow isn’t guaranteed... and as it is written ( Hebrews 9 : 27 ); ‘It is appointed unto man ONCE to die, but after this, THE JUDGMENT’.

    I was meaning to watch this because someone commented on John Green's video from a week or two ago that the joke he told was one Norm had told on Conan's show. But I didn't find it then and I didn't try very hard and now it's here and he's gone.

    America is being run by criminals who market child abuse as a way to make $. American librarians function as Josef Goebbels' pinch hitters and the food distribution centers in America are staffed by Hannibal Lecter's Food Porn Retinue Fan Club. Nepotism isn't functional; mathematics is the only Legal Language Legal Consciousness can legally acknowledge to continue sentience for any length of time; and a bunch of addicts started a 12 Step program in a Natural Law-eschewing territorial microclimate to get you to think they were taking life seriously when what they actually did was tighten the noose of human-trafficking more tightly around your damn neck.
