Whoever invented the phrase "there's no such thing as a stupid question" has 1) never worked retail, and 2) never read some of the questions that people ask online.
Yahoo! Answers is a forum for people to ask questions on a variety of subjects, including politics, science, entertainment, and more. Other users are able to answer, with the goal of fostering discussion and expanding knowledge. While some questions are thought-provoking and smart, others are almost painful to read.
Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and Seth MacFarlane decided to celebrate some of the most disconcerting questions posted on Yahoo! Answers in the style of lounge singers. Fallon is no stranger to singing on the show, with the "Musical Impression Generator" a fan-favorite recurring bit. MacFarlane is an accomplished jazz singer, obviously comfortable in this smooth, classic style.
Clad in smoking jackets, MacFarlane plays piano while Fallon hilariously attempts to pantomime doing so. They have a hilarious back-and-forth with Fallon asking the questions and MacFarlane sagely answering them, based on completely real submissions to Yahoo! Answers.

Lounge singing makes everything better. Can we have them tackle nasty comment sections next?
