Many Americans still seem baffled by the debt-ceiling dispute, so last night Brian Williams stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to break things down with another installment of “Slow Jam the News.” The clip didn’t shed and light on the issue — and in fact, it will probably leave people wondering why congressmen have such filthy names — but we did get to hear “Honey Bri Bri” sing a little Salt-N-Pepa. Plus, just when you thought the tale had run its course, the folks at Fallon turn America’s fiscal problems into a masterful Al Roker shart joke.
