Concerning the moth joke: We were taught in French class in high school in 1971 that this is a shaggy dog joke. We learned almost nothing about French.

THE MOST IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD💬💬💬 (This is gonna be long. You can skip it if you want, but the Lord is soon to come. He will bring judgment for everyone who sinned against Him. This is the message of hope.) What is the most important thing in life? Well, if God exists, then it must be to get to know who He is, and to know what will happen to you after you die. ☝️☝️☝️ So where would you go when you die? ☠️ The Bible says all of us have sinned against God. All of us have offended the holy and just God whose justice requires our lives! "The soul that sins shall die — the penalty of sin is death." So if everyone sinned, then everyone will die! God promises eternal condemnation for all who sinned against Him. We are sinners living in despair in this world. We're here to suffer the world for a time and suffer the next world for eternity. There are people who tell us doing good things will save us from God's judgment. No, not really. Romans 6:23 says that the wages of sin is "death", and not good works. We must pay our sins with our own lives! "Well, but doesn't God love us? " Exactly! The Bible tells us that because of God's unconditional love for us, He became a man 2000 years ago to die for all our sins. ❤️❤️❤️ The requirement of sin was the sinner's life, but Jesus gave His life as a substitute for ours. We sinned, but Jesus died. That's called the grace of God! God took that which is ours (our punishment) for us to have that which is His (eternal life). If you believe in Jesus, your punishment will become His, and His eternal life will become yours. We broke God's law, Jesus paid the fine! If you want to follow Christ today, then deny your whole self, and follow Him with all your heart! Pray and read the Bible daily and get to know who He is. Then start living for Him who died for you! God bless you ❤️❤️❤️.

This joke was originally told by Jonathan Winters on the Johnny Carson show and was told as a short joke. Just the intro with the moth stating "Im depresseed"...Doctor says "you need a psychologist why did you come in here"... "because the light was on". It was a short joke with an antiquated but humerous punchline. What Norm did to this joke was a demonstration of comedic genius. Norm made this punchline about 10x funnier.

Norm was a serious connoiseur of Russian 19th century literature. This joke is his take on The Death of Ivan Iliych by Tolstoy. The 12 minute joke is a take on Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky. Of all recent deaths of celebrities his hurt me the most. This kind of talent is rare af.

I'm seeing that the Moth Joke follows the same exact structure as The Aristocrats joke: Quick intro, same dead punchline, and everything in between is completely up to the person telling it. You don't need to see Gregory Olinovich.

Context: Conan wanted another segment with Norm, he agreed thinking it was only a mere 20 seconds, but instead it was 7 minutes. He borrowed this joke from another comic and improvised to make up the time. Thus another legendary Norm Macdonald appearance.

RIP Norm Macdonald. Genius comedic voice and this joke 100% encapsulates every facet of his brilliance. His ability to pull in and out of dark to light without effort and the pure delight on his face when he delivers the punchline. Love this guy.
