Plus, do lesbians go to Disney World?

One of the best segments on Late Night with Seth Meyers is "Jokes Seth Can't Tell," where Amber Ruffin and Jenny Hagel -- a black and queer women, respectively -- deliver punchlines to jokes it would be inappropriate for Meyers, as a straight white man, to tell. During this week's segment, Meyers recounted a story about gay penguins attempting to kidnap a baby chick, to which Hagel replied that "a pair of lesbian penguins attempted to adopt three cats." Then, Meyers revealed that he had no idea the peach emoji was meant to symbolize a butt, which Ruffin explained is because white people prefer to use the pancake emoji.

Meyers went on to set up a joke about a couple who celebrated their wedding by visiting every Disney theme park in the United States in 24 hours. "But gay marriage is weird," deadpanned Hagel. Meyers then asked her if lesbians go to Disney World. "We prefer Bush Gardens," she answered.
