it seems, says craig ferguson, that some people have been writing in saying that they dont get home early enough to see the monologue, so they ask him to give a quick recap of what he said so that they can be all caught up. though this is obviously not true, it does allow craig the humorous opportunity to quickly review his 10 minute opening monologue into a fast thirty seconds. this recap is usually followed by another: 'our pirate viewers also complain that they cannot understand the monologue, so for them, we will recap again in pirate language'. craig then puts on an eyepatch, a pirate hat, and a hook hand. he then proceeds to add a lot of 'arrr's and other piratey things in his second 30 second recap. quite funny.
