The Daily Show Goes To Moscow. Just Like A Commie.
For the Winter Olympics, The Daily Show sent Jason Jones to Moscow, which is no longer the USSR but is now like America "with a fucked up alphabet." Best moment of the Cold War Nostalgia groove: Mikhial Gorbachev, unaccountably still alive, threatens to put Jones through a wall for trying to pull an unscheduled interview. Also fun are the media-savvy Moscovites on the street who recognize Drago from Rocky IV as a "Russian stereotype" and Boris and Natasha as characters from an "American bullshit cartoon" (Bullshit, Bullwinkle, whatevs).
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.
