(Music playing)

David Letterman plays a little game on The Late Show that he calls "Will It Float?" in which they take some ordinary and some not-so-ordinary items, they drop them in a tank of water to see whether it floats or whether it sinks and I don't really know the purpose of the game but it seems like a lot of fun, so we decided to play Woodlands Church's version of The Late Show game "Will It Float?"!

SINGING: Will it float? Will it float? Will it float? Will it float? Will it float? Will it float?

Whew! Thank you Paul Shaeffer! Appreciate it! Okay, Mr. Announcer Guy, what is our first item for the show "Will It Float"?

ANNOUNCER: Well, our first item today, frozen 12-pound, organic, free-range turkey!

Whew! Does it make a difference that it's organic as whether or not it'll float?

ANNOUNCER: Well, it doesn't have antibiotics in it.

All right, that's probably a good thing to think about, so we'll play the game "Will It Float?"! How many of you think this organic, free-range, 12-pound, Butterball frozen turkey is going to float? Raise your hand. How many of you think it's going to sink like a rock? Raise your hand. How many of you don't care? Raise your hand. How many of you think this should never be done in church and you're thinking of walking out? Raise your hand. Okay! Yeah, I'm kind of with the last group, so anyway! All right. We're going to play the game! Get ready for your lives to be changed! Will it float? What do you think? What do you think guys? (Music) It floats! (Music continues) Now, how many of you said it would float? No! You, not everybody! You're in church, don't lie! Now, all you know that a 12-pound organic Butterball frozen turkey floats, so write that down in your notes! It'll change your life. Okay! Tell everybody you learned it at church. Okay, here we go! What is the second and final item we're going to test?

ANNOUNCER: Well, our second item is actually two items. We're going to try a can of Coke and a can of Diet Coke.

Is it legal to do two things at once here?

ANNOUNCER: Well, it's your game.

Okay, we'll let's do it! Let's do it!
