When well-regarded automobile enthusiast Jerry Seinfeld stopped by at The Tonight Show last night, he did something he hardly does anymore: picked up the microphone and told a few jokes.

Seinfeld's brief stand-up set came just after Jimmy Fallon gave everyone in the audience a flat-screen TV for Christmas, and the comic used his host's generosity as a springboard to talk about the shiny, useless junk that piles up and quickly turns to garbage in homes across America during the holiday season.

"I wish there was a store where I could buy something, pivot, and just throw it down a chute into an incinerator," he says at one point, taking his familiar observational comedy into the realm of the bazillionaire he is. "Walk out, no bags—that's my perfect shopping experience."
