[ cheers and applause ] next up, "messolution." let's see what messolution means. when you break your new year's resolution while you're still at a new year's eve party. [ light laughter ] for example, i promised myself that in 2017, i would stop getting blackout drunk and embarrassing myself, but at 12:03 a.m., i chugged the punch bowl, stripped to my underpants, and ended up full-on baby new year on the front lawn.
