Jon Stewart Upgrades America's Comedy Infrastructure (Video)
On Wednesday's Daily Show, Jon Stewart took a brief detour into the unsexy but important topic of infrastructure funding, which may not immediately seem like comedy gold, but the bit worked. Our Great Nation's roads and bridges are in terrible shape, and the means by which Congress has traditionally paid for the federal highway trust fund, gas taxes, is not an option in Tea Party Washington. And so instead, the road to avoiding bridge collapses is paved with clusterfucks. It's educational, it's informative, and it's funny, and we finally learn the true motto inscribed over the doors of the Capitol building: "A Latin phrase meaning 'Fuck it, we'll probably all be dead in ten years anyway.'"
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
