Appearing on Tuesday’s Tonight Show, comedian Billy Crystal showed a copy of Dick Cheney’s high school yearbook photo and joked: “...he was voted most likely to accidentally invent ISIS.”
As the audience laughed, host Jimmy Fallon added: “Oh that's so nice. That's very – I did not know that he got voted that. That's a good thing. You never read that in most yearbooks.”
On HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher in May, Crystal delighted in telling an anecdote about he and the late Robin Williams imaging Ronald Reagan in hell on the day of the late President’s 2004 funeral.
Here is a transcript of the brief exchange aired early on June 17:

JIMMY FALLON: Yeah, I didn't know he went to – yeah.
CRYSTAL: Yeah, and he was voted most likely to accidentally invent ISIS.
FALLON: Oh that's so nice. That's very – I did not know that he got voted that.
FALLON: That's a good thing. You never read that in most yearbooks.
