STOCKTON, CA - As he prepares for an early exit from The Tonight Show to make room for Jimmy Fallon, Jay Leno fired off jokes at Stockton Wednesday night.
Leno used Stockton's bankruptcy to offer these gems: "Stockton's so broke, Lindsey Lohan wouldn't shoplift there." And "Stockton's so broke, a North Korean missile would raise property values."
Attorney Gil Somera wasn't laughing.
"I don't find it funny. I've been here all my life. It has its problems, but together we'll work hard, raise taxes and get more cops on the streets," said Somera.
Somera tried a bit of humor of his own.
"Jay Leno is so funny - oh wait, he just lost his job," he said.
