Late Night with Craig Ferguson

Celebs often tell outlandhish stories on late-night television, but funnyman Dick Van Dyke's latest tale may take the cake.

"I went out once and fell asleep on that board ... and I woke up out of sight of land," he said. "I looked around and I started paddling with the swells and I start seeing fins swimming around me, and I thought, 'I'm dead.' They turned out to be porpoises. They pushed me all the way to shore. I'm not kidding."
