    I really liked the "I know we talked about baconnaise a lot tonight, but Please don't send us any more"

    That whole sequence was probably one of the most hilarious original things they've done on the show in ages.

    So fucking hilarious.

    Jon Stewart is a man willing to make great sacrifices for his audience.

    I am genuinely surprised he didn't vomit.

    Well, remember, it was also slathered around a blueberry-pancake-around-a-sausage-on-a-stick.

    I like KFC gravy, and I like Taco Bell's Crunchwrap Surpeme, but I don't eat them together.

    Note I am not comparing KFC's gravy to Baconnaise.

    You know, I think that disgusted reaction might actually be beneficial to baconnaise sales.

    After all, you're not drunk enough until you're dipping pancakes on a stick in to a jar of bacconaise.

    A lot of that is disgusting, but at the same time, I'm intrigued. If I were going to die, I'd want to go out eating as much of that shit as possible.

    Somewhat on topic for this thread. Has anyone been watching Demetri Martin's show? I really like his standup, so it's nice to see that the show plays to his strengths (IE: Essentially is his stand up with some pre-recorded sketches).

    I've watched all three episodes. It's a bit hit or miss for me, but overall it's an okay program. That video you linked with the CGI rats was hilarious, and I like how he gets other comedians like John Oliver on the show (last night he played a hilarious William Shakespeare).

    There are some things that fall kind of flat, though. I actually feel like the sketches are a bit better than the stand-up, though there can be some pretty good bits here and there.

    I'm catching up on this week's daily show, and was it me, or was Jon Stewart kind of a dick to the Amazon guy?

    The guy seemed to take it all in jest and in good faith, but he absolutely trashed the damn kindle.

    Yeah but he's typically an asshole to Bill O'reilly or Republicans, the founder of Amazon seemed like a generally okay guy at the least, and just wanted to talk about his pet project.

    That Matthews interview was hilarious.

    He actually had to stop and seriously exclaim "This is the worst interview I've ever been on" or something along those lines.

    As much as I love Amazon, my empathy for him dwindled as he proved to be one of those "really loud obnoxious laugh" type guys... but instead of hidden in the audience, he was on stage.

    But in regards to what was otherwise a fairly fluffy interview, while they didn't get along like old college drinking buddies, I'd say it went fairly well. Asking the advantages it has over books (compact, portability, apparently inspires more reading) versus the disadvantages (it's pretty fucking expensive, especially when you account for buying all those books, possibly a second time for favourites you already own) seemed like a reasonable thing to do.

    Stewart can really tear through someone's faults when he wants to. My favorite example is still his interview on Crossfire that led to the show being canceled.

    Kindle books are cheap compared to paper books.

    If you buy a bunch to make up the difference in savings to account for the $300 or whatever it is for the kindle itself.

    I can't read e-books

    It's just not nearly as satisfying as reading an actual book, you know? And the feel of a good solid hardcover in your hands is something you can't replicate

    Maybe if the Kindle was like super cheap, like between fifty and a hundred bucks or something, then I'd consider a purchase just for the free 3G Wifi, portability, and the futuristic thrill of reading an entire book off of a tiny thing in your hand, like they used to show on old scifi shows

    But as it is, I'll stick to regular books. They make me look smarter anyway
