"We're in day two now of this whole mess, and no one knows when the government will be back up and running, so if you ever wanted to cut the tag off your mattress, do it now," Fallon said. "No one's going to bust you."

Fallon also mentioned a few changes since the shutdown, like NASA's Twitter cutbacks and D.C. bars giving drink discounts to government employees.

Fallon also mentioned reported sightings of legislators drinking before the shutdown, joking it was apparent lawmakers were drunk when they passed a series of laws like: The "No Taco Left Behind Act" and a resolution making the official time in Washington "5 o'clock somewhere."
