Washington (CNN) – Mitt Romney headed to the “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Monday night, where the Republican presidential hopeful shared the top ten things he would like to say to the American people.
Joking about everything from Newt Gingrich’s rise in the polls to his own hair, Romney delivered the list in a straightforward, dead pan manner.
“Newt Gingrich… really,” joked Romney as if he were questioning the rise of his closest competitor in the race for the Republican nomination,
And the big reveal came at number one, when Mitt Romney shared that his widely admired hair was “a hairpiece.”
Romney is not the first candidate to show their lighter side on Letterman’s list. Texas Gov. Rick Perry stopped by the show after his debate “brain freeze,” and listed ten excuses for the mistake.
As for Romney, he was equally self-deprecating.
"What's up gangstas, it's the M-i-double tizzle,” Romney said at number 9. “My new cologne is now available at Macy's. It's Mitts-tified,” was number 5.
