There were too many wonderful moments to count at the Rally to Restore Sanity And/Or Fear. But from a shipper's perspective, the segment in which Stephen challenged Jon to marry America is hard to beat.
(Shoutout to all the fellow fans I met in D.C. who saw me drawing this!)
Meanwhile, in the alternate universe where Jon Stewart has somehow managed to remain perpetually single . . .
Jon (thinking): Is he here yet?
(Phone): JDate Who's Checking You Out? definitelyjewishguy 46, New York, NY View more >>
Jon (thinking): I don't know why I let my friends talk me into this. Online dating is such a scam. Sure, this guy looks cute, but he's obviously using a fake name. What are the odds he'll even show up? And what if we don't click at all in person? What if . . .
Voice: Excuse me? Are you Jon Stewart?
Jon: Yes! That's me! Are you . . .
Mystery person: . . . your date! Shlomo Judenbergowitzengoldenstein. Shalom to meet you!
Jon: . . . So you're Jewish.
Shlomo: Yes I am! Definitely very authentic Jewish, yes sir!
Stephen, kidnapped and brainwashed by the bad guys (and not for the last time), is attempting to kill the sailor anchors. Jon, fresh from a backstory infodump about their past lives, can't let this go on any longer. But he can't stop loving his reincarnated boyfriend, either.
The weapon was inspired by someone's reaction to the Jim Cramer interview: "Colbert has his bump. Stewart has his axe."
As many may have heard of by now, a huge amount of London and surrounding cities have gone up in flames and rioting. Apparently it was begun in Tottenham (N.London) when the police shot a gangster, 4 days ago today. England being the way it is, we questioned against the police because, y'know, everything they do is completely wrong and such. Granted, the police can be corrupt, but they do some good too. The public disagrees - what started as civil protest was overtaken by rioting. Mainly, stupid kids my age joining in the 'fun' of torching cities, throwing huge bricks at the police, setting cars on fire and potentially destroying businesses by looting everything they can. Apparently some really massive businesses including Sony took a huge blow.
All I'm seeing about this so far are people whining and moaning about how pathetic these people are, what David Cameron should do and what the police can do - But whining is doing nothing (this comic is a parody, if anything). The police can't just come in and effectively hose down the crowds, because despite these teens breaking so many laws and damaging businesses and the community, splashing them with some water for their actions and controlling/calming them is against their human rights. I can't describe how much that sickens some of us. So now thousands of people in London, including myself and my family, are worrying whether or not the rioting will enter our cities, and if we're going to be caught in the middle of it. Day 4, I'm really hoping I wont see any gangs coming down my street with torches and bricks.
