I hope you’re feeling OK, and if you’re not, I hope that you’ll be feeling OK real soon.

I hope that people everywhere are feeling OK or will be feeling OK real soon.

I hope that animals everywhere feel OK, even those we eat. Because happy animals taste better.

And I hope that this message gives me the inside track for next year’s Nobel Peace Prize.

Because I’m taking that $1.4 million award and I’m going to Vegas, baby!

That’s the real audacity of hope.
