  • - Let's talk about what's really important--

  • all the gifts that I got for the holidays.

  • So many of you sent me presents.

  • Thank you so much.

  • I got some really cool stuff.

  • Here are a few of the things that I received

  • that I would like to share with you.

  • This first one is from Chris Jensen.

  • He is in London, England,

  • and he says, "Merry Christmas, Ellen.

  • "I'm an international art dealer,

  • "and I wanted to send you some paintings,

  • "one because you're a strong woman,

  • and one because you like golf so much."

  • So the first one is right here.

  • This is the one because I'm a strong woman.

  • [laughter]

  • [cheers and applause]

  • Look at that.

  • I got to say, this is one of the best paintings of me

  • as Joan of Arc that I've ever seen.

  • It looks just like me.

  • The castle is smaller than my house, but that's okay.

  • That's--all right.

  • This is--I mean, it's really amazing, right?

  • audience: Yeah.

  • - It's very impressive.

  • That's what I have on under this suit, by the way.

  • That's what I wear.

  • And this is the one because I like golf so much.

  • And he did me as a pinup girl playing golf.

  • [cheers and applause]

  • Right?

  • The only thing he forgot is, whenever I go golfing,

  • I wear two pairs of pants in case I get a hole in one.

  • [audience groaning, laughing]

  • Thank you. Thank you.

  • Thank you.

  • They're amazing, Chris. Thank you so much.

  • And this next one comes from someone I'm gonna--

  • I don't know if I'm pronouncing it right.

  • Her name is spelled H-E-I-N-I.

  • Um, "Heinie"?

  • Heini Sinko from Helsinki, Finland.

  • I have never met a Heini I didn't like.

  • So hello. [laughter]

  • She knitted me this Ellen doll right here.

  • audience: Aw. - I know.

  • This is what I look like on TV in Finland.

  • [laughter]

  • I can travel there, and they'll never recognize me.

  • [chuckles]

  • It's not as detailed as the paintings,

  • but somehow she knew that my left leg is shorter

  • than my right.

  • I have to adjust all my pants.

  • Thank you, Heini,

  • and to everyone who sent me a gift,

  • thank you so much.
