The Daily Show: August 21, 2006

The Daily Show"Karr Talk": FOX News was bragging a bit about having one of their people on the plane, scoping out John Karr. Ohh, just imagine all the crazy crap that could've gone down! As it turned out, Karr spent most of his ride sipping champagne and eating king prawns. Wow. Senior Media Ethicist Rob Corddry reported live from the plane, his head slowly emerging from a toilet bowl. He wanted to do some real investigative journalism and find out more about ol' Pervert McMurderman (HA!) by hiding in the First Class toilet. He seemed crushed when Jon informed him that Karr wasn't in First Class but in Business Class. Oh, and I loved how the entire audience let out a collective groan when Rob said, "Scoop of a lifetime, Jon, and I let it slip through my fingers." After they cut away, Jon started laughing and explained that, since it's Rob's last week, they've all been think of terrible things for him to do. Man, I'm really going to miss Rob.

"Snakes On A Plane: Could It Muthafuckin' Happen Here?": Samantha Bee filed a report about the possibility of muthafuckin' snakes actually getting on a muthafuckin' plane. Best part was when Samuel L. Jackson made a surprise appearance as a victim being interviewed by Samantha. Most of his dialogue was bleeped out, haha.

"Gratitude Adjustment": Senior Bureau Chief Aasif Mandvi explained that it's not that the Iraqis are not thankful, they just don't know how to express their gratitude. Y'know, Mandvi's got the reporter stare down pretty well, but his timing is still killing me. It takes him ages to get through a joke. It's all really funny stuff, but he'd get a hell of a lot more laughs if his pacing was a bit better.

The night's guest was, once again, Reza Aslan, author of No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam. Jon asked him to rate the Mid-East situation on a scale of "fucked" to "fuuuuucked" and Reza answered, "Motherfucked". Snap! The interview was pretty interesting. Reza talked about how, despite Bush's claim that Hezbollah lost, the group is actually stronger than ever. And even though the talk was all very serious, I thought Reza was adorable. Sorry.

Jon/Stephen: A quick round of the Questions Game. Moment of Zen: CNN blew up a couple of trucks. Whoo for explosives.

MAN THEY SHOULD'VE AIRED THE MOTHERFUCKIN SNAKES ON A PLANE REPORT BEFORE FRIDAY WHEN THE MOVIE OPENING WAS DISAPPOINTING. HOWEVER, I ENJOYED MOTHERFUCKIN SAM JACKSON AS A VICTIM OF THE SNAKES. "I DIDN'T PAY $300 ON PRICELINE FOR THIS SHIT" FUNNY STUFF. EVEN COLBERT HAD A SNAKES ON A PLANE REFERENCE ON THE THREAT DOWN.
