Play of the Day: A Delicious, Dangerous Use for Drones

TBS

The IRS scandals continue to amuse The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno, as he revels in any pressure on the tax agency after recent conference spending has been put under more scrutiny. In his monologue Wednesday, Leno mentioned a lack of receipts and the irony for those who have been audited. Leno also mentioned the recent push to reform the tax code and the recent scrutiny surrounding Apple’s taxes.

On TBS, Conan O’Brien mentioned the recent dustup between the First Lady and a heckler during a Tuesday fundraiser, highlighting the interest former president Bill Clinton had in the exchange.

O’Brien and Late Show’s David Letterman also highlighted a new way to deliver pizzas. Domino’s has tested an unmanned aerial vehicle resembling a helicopter that will get pizzas to customers, which prompted O’Brien to make a joke about safety and Letterman to bring New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie into the mix.

Fast forward to 2:15 to see Letterman explain how the FAA and Domino’s got into some recent trouble with the drones.
