January Jones Breaks the News to Jon Stewart: Very Few Jews in South Dakota (VIDEO)

January Jones and Jon Stewart discuss the lack of Jews in South Dakota.January Jones was on 'The Daily Show' (weekdays, 11 PM ET on Comedy Central) to promote her new movie, "Unknown," but she ended up spending almost her entire interview with Jon Stewart talking about her home state of South Dakota.

"How would I do [in South Dakota]?" Stewart wondered after hearing about the state for a few minutes. "Do they have Jews?"

"No," Jones said, knowingly shaking her head. "We don't."

"Could we set up a little preserve where Jews could roam freely?" Stewart suggested.

Jones joked that the Jews could roam with the buffalo, which lead Stewart to make an even more ridiculous joke in which he had South Dakotans petting the exotic Jews and declaring "They're much softer than I thought."

"I brought a boyfriend home once who was Jewish," Jones told Stewart. "It was the talk of the town, I'll tell you."

In reality, there are an estimated 275 Jewish people living in South Dakota (which does make it the least Jewish state in the union by both total population and percentage).
