Uh-Oh: Jon Stewart Is Back, But Something Is...Wrong

Whoop whoop! Jon Stewart's finally back at The Daily Show after months away! Unfortunately, (just like your friend from middle school who came back from summer vacation suddenly too cool for you because she grew boobs) he's changed. He's tan, he has a beard now, he's forgotten he's American and can no longer speak… » 9/04/13 12:50pm 9/04/13 12:50pm

'Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe' Is an Awesome Response to 'Accidental Racist'

Stephen Colbert's Sister, Elizabeth Colbert Busch, Wins the South…

There's always something a little unfair about when a family has multiple successful, brilliant and highly achieving children. You mean that the Sedarises get two comedic geniuses?!
