Thank you!  Thank you!   You've been a great audience!  I just want to leave you 
with one last thought - and see if it makes you laugh as much as the other 75 minutes...

You see, before I started making it as a comic, I was a teacher for 12 years ....funny,
right?  Because I was the new guy.....I taught history, math, whatever the other teachers didn't want!

Here's the  thing - I made more money tonight in 75 minutes....than I did teaching a
whole year.....and making the kids cry!  Maybe......there's something funny .....or 
maybe we should cry about that, too...

       (Tilts his head, listens)

Hey, don't like this ending?  Well, you can't get your money back!

       (He turns to leave, stops,looks back)

And neither can the kids!

        (Exits, not really laughing his way to the bank)
