 Detailed (possible) explanation of Kevin James' performance 
 on AGT.  Because of the attention this video has received, 
 I'd like to point out that this one explanation is almost 
 certainly inaccurate to some degree.  I only used the AGT 
 footage and had no extra information.  Click below to

Subj:     Divorce On Thanksgiving
          From: Imogenelumen on 11/24/2003
      and From: LABLaughs on 11/18/2008

 A man in Phoenix calls his son in New York the day before
 Thanksgiving and says, "I hate to ruin your day, but I have
 to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-
 five years of misery is enough."

 "Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams.

 "We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the
 father says.

 "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about
 this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her."

 Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone.
 "No way they're getting divorced!" she shouts, "I'll take
 care of this."

 She calls Phoenix immediately and screams at her father,
 "You are not getting divorced.  Don't do a single thing
 until I get there.  I'm calling my brother back, and we'll
 both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO
 YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.

 The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay,"
 he says, "they're coming for Thanksgiving and paying their
 own way."

 M: "Is'nt that stretch'n things a bit far"?

 H: "No. You got a bag to go along with your balls'n clubs"?

 M: "?.....of course. Why?"

 H: "Zippered bag or velcro"?

    behind you like this. Now spread your feet apart a bit.
    Bend over a bit.  Now I'll put my arms around you and
    show you how to swing."

 M: "What's the green thing"?

 H: "Ah, that's where the hole is."

 H: "No, why"?  "...anyway, when you get there, you take
    your putter..."

 M: "Whats a putter"?

 H: "Smallest club made."

 M: (Damn that woman, just can't keep her mouth shut).

 H: "...and with it you put the ball in the hole."

 M: "You mean the putter"?

    and the putter."

 M: "Well, that's when I knew he didn't know what he was
    talk'n about.  Cuz I seen holes big enough for a horse-

 H: "Then after the first hole, you go on to the next 17."
