GAS GUZZLERS: Kenseth appeared on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” last night, and host Jay Leno introduced Kenseth by saying, “I was going to do some of those Rodney-style gas jokes. You know, ‘Gas is so high ...’ I love doing a bunch of those. I figured why not bring out someone who really knows the price of a gallon of gas.” Leno: “Now, how high are gas prices?” Kenseth: “Gas prices are rising faster than the split in Angelina Jolie’s dress. ... Gas prices are so high, Kim Kardashian dumped an NFL player for a Chevron dealer. ... Gas prices are so high, on road trips when kids act up in the back seat, dads can't afford to turn the car around and go back home anymore. ... Gas prices are so high, Mitt Romney’s wife can only afford to drive one Cadillac. ... After Tim Tebow filled up his gas tank, he dropped to both knees" (“The Tonight Show,” NBC, 2/29).
