Think of it as What’s My Line? but with a twist.

For as loud and boisterous as Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show can get, one of his favorite games is The Whisper Challenge, in which each participant has to guess what the other said while wearing noise canceling headphones. On Tuesday night, he recruited guest Carol Burnett into the game, and the comedy legend turned out to be a natural, identifying her first challenge, “butternut squash,” in one guess. Fallon, for his part, had a slightly harder time guessing her “hut hut hike.”

The highlight of the game came when Fallon tried to read “me Tarzan, you Jane,” and Burnett guessed “piss off.” Fallon laughed so hard he fell out of his chair.
