Jon Stewart stealing my material


If you're one of the rapidly decreasing number of people who has not yet watched this or informed me of it, check out the quotation marks jokes around 4:20.

Thank you *so much* for posting that. I love TDS and when I heard Jon's jokes on the show I was like, "OMG! THE BLOG!" XD So yeah, YAY!

Chelsea said...

That is great! I definitely wouldn't be drinking that "water". I love the clip with Suze Orman too.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

That is absolutely hilarious! Thanks for brightening my day!

As a regular TDS watcher and reader of this blog, I immediately said "oh, this sounds so familiar". Also ironic, given the nature of the first minute of the opening, that the quote bit appears at 4:20 into the clip. Coincidence?

Juliet said...

It won't let me watch. Why must I go to Comedy Central and then try to find this video? Why can't I just click the 'play' button?

It sounds really funny and I hope to see it?

Good material it is.

Crazybunnylady has a good point. =]

Morgan said...

And just for the record so we all know, I was the first to point this out to you.

Jon and I are tight.

When I saw this last night I was so excited to be the first to email you about it...then I forgot totally. Glad everyone else remembered!

Kimizzy said...

That was effin hilarious.

Thanks for posting that!!

He cracks me up. :)

Sarah said...

The air quotes make it, I think.

The Freakin' Deacon said...

I was actually cruising to see if this had been covered here. Good "stuff."

Snickrsnack Katie said...

That is classic! I think Jon Stewart's been reading your website!

Matthew Tiffany said...

I also thought I had the scoop on this, rushed right over to report it to you. Foiled again.

If people have trouble with the official site, Hulu.com also carries full episodes of TDS.

They also have Ghostbusters, so there you go.

Add me to the list of people who watched that segment and immediately thought of this blog!

Christie said...

There's never enough "water" for people who need their "money"...
...love this blog!

Lynette said...

That was so amazing, I basically cried I was laughing so hard.

Some Audio Guy said...

LOL!
I'm so behind on Daily Shows. DAMN YOU DVR!

But I JUST caught this and came running over here, only to find that you've got it covered.

Nicely done.

Nicely done.

LiteralDan said...

Wow, I didn't watch this episode until today (I love my DVR), and I immediately came here when I heard this bit (since I was online anyway-- I'm not quite that pathetic). And here I thought I was telling you something you might not already know.

So much for that!

P.S. After writing this out, I just quickly read through all the comments before submitting mine, and I say f*** it, I'm just going through with it even though everyone else said the same thing already.

badfae said...

Well, to be fair, jokes like that predate this blog; my mom and I have been saying the same kinds of things since I was a kid, and she doesn't even have internet access.

My crush on Jon Stewart continues...

bethany said...

badfae: of course I know that, he didn't ACTUALLY steal my material... I was trying to be funny...

nitro2k01 said...

And of course he makes a pot joke in the beginning of the video. Excellent for more than one reason!

rejectreality1 said...

This reminds me of that episode of Friends where Joey doesn't know how to use air quotes properly so he randomly sticks them around random words. Do you have it on your site already? :)
