There was once a time in America, believe it or not, when we didn’t take ourselves so seriously. People could get together and laugh hysterically. At each other. Amy Poehler remembers those days. Usually there were tuxedos involved, she says, and invariably there were drinks in hand. We weren’t quite so … sensitive.

Poehler says doing what Don Rickles did for five decades is hard for young comedians to pull off these days.

Watch the hilarious exchange between two of our favorite celebrities.
