Jimmy Kimmel used Los Angeles' aggressive new plastic bag ban as fodder for a segment on his show this week. He asked, "How can the most plastic city in America turn its back on plastic bags?"

Kimmel took a couple of shots at Angelenos who tote their pups in their purses (that joke is a little 2005 but we'll let it slide) and Bruce Jenner's face (I guess Michael Jackson passed the bad-surgery baton on to him). If paper or reusable bags aren't your thing, Kimmel has an ad for drawstring pants and Uggs that will help you tote your groceries (and more importantly, your pudding) around town.
