Jimmy Kimmel sends Fallon congratulatory lunch

Just because Jimmy Fallon's bringing new competition into the 11:35 timeslot doesn't mean Jimmy Kimmel can't keep things friendly.

The ABC late-night host, who's new to the 11:35 neighborhood himself, apparently congratulated Fallon on his future "Tonight Show" takeover on Thursday with a sizable spread from a New York deli.

Fallon, who's riding out his tenure as the host of "Late Night" in the interim, shared a picture of the good eats on Instagram.

"Thank you Jimmy Kimmel and staff for the 2nd Ave Deli lunch. Class act," Fallon captioned the image, before dropping his punchline. "Watch Jimmy every night at 12:37 only on NBC."

Kimmel hasn't responded, but given the kindly humorous tweet he fired off on Wednesday, the day Fallon's new appointment was announced, it's likely safe to say that all's forgiven.

"Congratulations to my dear, sweet @jimmyfallon," Kimmel tweeted. "A formidable rival and an incredible lover."

    Are they conjoined twins? Looks like it from the photo. If they are conjoined, how lazy of their parents to give 'em the same name.

    Ok, so I’m in one of the restroom stalls at work this morning, the only one open and I can see why – there’s a little POOP ball the size of a button stuck to the porcelain at the back of the bowl, about ½ an inch above the waterline. And it’s smelling-up the entire stall. Just how does one accomplish that? Logistically, the only way I can imagine this happening is intentionally. Their butt would have to be hovering several inches above the seat as they leaned forward so they could projectile-sh!t that far back into the stool. Kudos to whomever pulled this one off. You're a master blaster.

    The greatest revenge will be if/when Conan takes over for Letterman.

    I think Jimmy Kimmel should go back to doing interviews about what a bad guy Leno is. He really needs to do more of that. He missed a few publications.

      mmmmmm I loooooove pears. My gramma used to get those canned pears, put shredded cheese with mayo in their centers, then a cherry on top. She would serve them for dessert sometimes after Sunday dinner. My dad would try to sneak and eat all the cherries before she set out the dessert plate : ). That was almost 200 years ago. It was fun then but I'm happier it is now. Being old is fun because you have more money and can do almost anything you want as long as you go to work and make money. You can even have just Oreos for supper. Lots and lots of them. If you do that for about 3 days though you kind of get a tummy ache though. We hope and pray you and everyone have a happy evening !
