Jon Stewart Was Once A Baby Too And Other Links
by Alex Carnevale
The Daily Show has been terrible lately, but Jon’s stuff on the State of the Union was still comic gold, as when he showed Phil Simms calling him ‘Tom’. Excuse my shaky camera work, I was going for a Cloverfield feel.
Without writers, the show has been better than it has any right to be, but it’s still pretty rough.
I feel bad for Jon, a legitimately funny comedian (his stand-up of yore is tremendous) who is vamping for 20 minutes every night like some kind of cracked out Jackie Mason.
The show’s writers are now writing for the Times. This was pretty funny, but “The Topical Satire Initiative” is not.

Molly and I find this comments thread to be the greatest in Jezebel history, and that’s saying a lot:
I know this guy who’s 27, plays video games all the time, has no interest in wearing anything besides a navy hoodie and sambas, eats junk food all the time and can’t figure what he wants his career to be.
He’s also financially responsible, wants to have children in the next five years and is married to me.
This was also funny:
Bottom line, I think, is that some people would prefer to face the world as part of a team (no judgment if you prefer to be solo). And we are no longer FORCED into marriage as our only option and babaymaking and staying home as our only career aspirations. So yeah, some of us are waiting to marry, some of us prefer cohabiting, some prefer non monogamous coupling. Whatev. Its more options for us, not a reason to panic. That said, I do think men are babies until they are nearly FORCED not to be.

Eugene writing about his trip to the US:
i am leaving USA today _ LA treated me with a response warmer than that of the core of the sun <> i think i may have met my future wife ><
CHICAGO _ family and friends looked after me like a kangaroo protects a roo _
NYC _ some strange weather, some hard floors, some luxurious beds <> i think i may have met my future wife here too >< maybe polygamy is back in fashion

and to that certain individual who drove a round trip of 4hrs to see me
