We've got a new version of "Call Me Maybe" to present to readers, but this one isn't brought to us by the Harvard baseball team or President Obama.

No, this time Carly Rae Jepsen herself is in on the remake.

The 26-year old singer joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots last night, reproducing the single’s bouncy beat in a very elementary (school) manner: via classroom instruments such as a bongo, xylophone, melodica, tone block and a triangle. It's fun stuff.

President Barack Obama appeared on NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon early this morning, taking part in the show's running bit called "slow jamming the news."

If you haven't seen it, the segment's name speaks for itself.

In front of a live college audience at the University of North Carolina, Obama talked about student loans while Fallon's house band the Roots jammed on a slow, sensual R&B beat, making the topic seem sexier than you ever thought possible:

With the rhythmic tunes accompanying him, Obama said, "What we said is simple: Now is not the time to make school more expensive for our young people."

Fallon then added (in his best Barry White voice), "Awww, yeah. You should listen to the president. Or as I like to call him, the Preezy of the United Steezy."

"Things are heating up inside Congress' chambers behind those closed doors."

We don't even know what that means, but the "POTUS with the most-est" needs to bring the Roots with him and deliver campaign speeches this way more often.

Mitt Romney wouldn't stand a chance.

Jimmy Fallon is being accused of gender-based favoritism at work. Bu a guy.

A fired staff member's suing Jimmy and NBC Universal for discrimination. In a lawsuit, Paul Tarascio claims he was dropped from his position as first stage manager at Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and replaced by a "totally incompetent woman."

Tarascio thus accuses Fallon of "gender bias."

Tarascio also alleges his replacement was "a less qualified woman" who constantly asked him how to do the job, and screwed up her stage manager duties.

He claims other male staffers on the night owl program, such as audio technicians and a Prop-Master, were also replaced by women at Jimmy's request.

Tarascio says the director said "Jimmy just prefers to take direction from a woman and "knowingly fabricated alleged performance issues" about Tarascio.

Tarascio is suing for punitive damages and lost wages. Calls to Jimmy's rep and NBC Universal were not returned. It's unclear if anyone still works there.

"These women get raped and I give them money." - Louis C.K.

Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the comedian discussed the allocation of his $1 million from sales of his downloadable comedy - distributed to worthy organizations he supports - and described some of these charities as only he can.

This place that builds water things where people are thirsty? Money.

Kids that no one likes or wants? Here, take some money.

Jimmy Fallon, the host of NBC's Late Night, issued an apology to GOP Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann over a song played during her visit to the program.

"I'm honored that @MicheleBachmann was on our show and I'm so sorry about the intro mess. I really hope she comes back," a Tweet from Fallon's account said.

As Bachmann strode on to the stage, the program's band, led by Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, played a snippet of a 1985 Fishbone song called ... "Lyin' Ass Bitch."

Fallon and Bachmann

The tune starts with a distinctive "la la la la la la la la la" refrain, the only words that were audible before a smiling, waving Bachmann sat down for her interview.

The song itself, which is about a relationship gone wrong, isn't political, and it's not clear if it was even selected with the Minnesota Congresswoman in mind.

In any case, it repeats the refrain "Lyin' Ass Bitch" about a dozen times, and a lot of people weren't happy. Michele's campaign had no immediate comment.

We have four words for you: Jon Hamm in tights.

That's really all readers should need to know in order to play the following video, which is a hilarious, live action version of the classic Saturday Night Live series The Ambiguously Gay Duo.

This one features Hamm, Jimmy Fallon, Ed Helms, Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell. There's a penis mobile, there's some major dry humping action and, well, there's Jon Hamm in tights. Seriously. Watch now.

Justin Bieber has sampled it.

Nick Jonas has sang a few lyrics in concert.

But no one has paid tribute to Rebecca Black's "Friday" quite like Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon. The talk show hosts, who have agreed to be best friends for six months, collaborated on the track during Fallon's show last night.

The performance (which included The Roots and Taylor Hicks) came after Colbert accepted Fallon's challenge to cover the YouTube smash if Fallon's audience came up with $26,000 to give to DonorsChoose.Org. Both sides came through with their ends of the deal, leading to the following hilarity:

His songs were covered on American Idol this week. He's hosting Saturday Night Live tomorrow. And now Elton John is jumping into the fray of another pop culture debate.

In an interview with Jimmy Fallon last night, the veteran artist was asked about Kings of Leon and Dave Grohl, musicians that have lashed out at Glee creator Ryan Murphy for asking if his show could cover their singles.

"When someone wants to do your song, it’s a compliment," John said, getting pointed in his criticism of Kings of Leon: "Lighten up, you assholes... I mean, this is a compliment. Also, it sends a positive message out. What the hell is wrong with you guys?”

Watch the exchange below.

Tiger Woods made a rare television appearance last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon - the golfer's first such interview since the late 2009 "incident."

We don't have to get into Rachel Uchitel, the car crash and everything else. Fallon started off asking Woods what he's been up to the last year and a half.

"Oh, nothing, nothing... Playing bad golf," the champion said, smiling.

"From a comedian's stand-point and my monologue writers, thank you," Fallon said, speaking for all of us. "Your awful pain, we laughed at your pain."

Even Tiger had to chuckle when Fallon added: "Not even making jokes, it kind of wrote itself. Balls, shaft, holes, foursomes ... it really writes itself!"

Woods had a fairly good time after that, talking about his charitable foundation, his recent top-10 finish and his bachelor pad/backyard golf course.

Later, Woods, Fallon and Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler demonstrated Tiger's new golf video game (ostensibly his reason for being there).

Follow the jump for video of Tiger's interview on Late Night ...

Winning. It's more than just a description of Charlie Sheen's life. It's also a new cologne, at least according to Jimmy Fallon.

The late night host performed one of his funniest skits last night, doing an eerily solid impression of the drug-loving actor, reciting various Charlie Sheen quotes and then tacking on a few of his own rambling thoughts in an ad for this pretend fragrance. To wit:

The only drug I'm on is Charlie Sheen. I took a lot of Charlie Sheen. I'm going to embrace my life. I'm going to put both arms around it and love it, violently, and defend it violently through violent hatred.

Watch the hilarious spoof below.
