Have you experienced Snake 'N' Bacon?

Snake N BaconOn Sunday night/Monday morning, [adult swim] premiered something called Snake 'N' Bacon. What is Snake 'N' Bacon? Well, I'm not entirely sure, actually. But I liked it. I think. Yes. Actually, I really liked it.

Like most [as] shows, Snake 'N' Bacon is a fifteen minute program with its own distinct aesthetic, presenting an interesting mix of animated sequences with live-action bits. I never thought there would be a way to translate creator Michael Kupperman's stuff on the small screen, but there we go. Weird, extra-funny, weird.

President Evo MoralesWow, it wasn't until I saw this montage that I realized how creepy and forced Hillary Clinton's laugh sounds. I get the feeling that it was only because she was on FOX News, even though the idea of Hillary being an android incapable of properly feigning human emotion is mighty appealing.

"AhmadineMinute": All the angry Jewish fellows and tough guys of New York City have come together to rant about Ahmadinejad hanging out in the City, filling their air with their oh-so-mockable voices. Jon really went to town with the voices tonight, didn't he?

Jon StewartEight critics of Russia's Vladimir Putin have recently died, causing some speculation that the causes of the deaths were not completely accidental. Kremlin Bureau Chief John Oliver reported on the situation. Aw, nuts. Looks like The Daily Show only managed to go two episodes without succumbing to the British charms of John Oliver. As much as I love to see Mr. Oliver, I feel as though TDS is over-using him. Give him a break before I build up a tolerance, yeah?

Jon Stewart"Donkey Party" (haha): This has been a week of amazing break-ups. First, Britney and K-Fed (I, a solid Alternative Rock fan, am unusually excited about the return of hot-Britney) and now, Bush and Rumsfeld. Oh, hell yes.

Obviously, the Republicans aren't taking all the Democratic wins that well... As for the blue folks themselves, they don't quite know how to handle the concept of "victory" either. Senior Political Correspondent Rob Riggle briefly checked in, sporting a nasty black eye (due to a "way ward high five"). QUESTION: Is Riggle just, like, completely unable to find a suit jacket that fits? He's almost always either only in shirt and tie or wearing a creepy Ambramoff-ish trenchcoat. Senior Political Correspondent Dan Bakkedahl talked a bit about how Republicans didn't do enough negative campaigning. I stopped paying attention about a sentence in because I just noticed that Bakkedahl no longer has that creepy, bald/curly Frasier Crane hair. Instead, he has an awkward little combover. I uess it's more reporter-ish, in a way.

The Daily Show"Indecision 2006"/"Diss Ingenuous": Virginia's George Allen threw the word "Macaca" (sounds like nonsense, but apparently, it's a genus of monkey) while shouting at an Indian supporter of his opponent. Bad move, man. Bad move. Correspondent Rob Corddry elaborated on the situation. Rob claimed that he is actually from Macaca, prompting Jon to ask where Macaca was. "Where is Macaca? Right next to Yapeepee!" Haha, I loved Rob's little celebratory dance. When he mentioned that he only has about a week and a half left on the show, it was kind of a downer. Sigh. I'm going to miss Rob.

The Daily ShowSince the media still seems to be clinging on to the pointless controversy of Bush using the word "shit" at the G8 Summit, Jon had to talk about it too. Yeah, yeah. Bush wasn't exactly exercising the best etiquette. He was using foul language, talking with his mouth open, and if the camera had panned down, we would have seen that he was scratching, if not his balls, then the area between his anus and his balls.

The Daily ShowJon Stewart touched on the previous day's report on the Republican effort for a non-binding resolution. Well, seems like the Democrats are fighting back!... with their own non-binding resolution. Hm. Jon brought up Charles Norwood's question again: "Is it Al-Qaeda, or is it America?" According the Comedy Central e-poll, 84% answered, "America", 7% answered, "Al-Qaeda", and 9% wanted to know when Dave Chapelle is coming back.

The Daily ShowThere are a lot of sick perverts out there, perusing through the Internet for young children to take advantage of. One such man: Brian Doyle. Doyle was recently arrested for soliciting sex from a 14 year-old (who turned out to be someone undercover). Here's the twist: Doyle works for the Department of Homeland Security... and he told the 14 year-old that he worked there. Wow. Bravo, sir. If only we had a department in charge of investigating this sort of stuff... Hmm. The irony is too much. Al-Qaeda must think we're retarded. Despite the horrors of this scandal, it still doesn't top McGruff's flashing issue from earlier in the year.

Jon StewartAll we've been hearing about is Al-Qaeda, Al-Qaeda, Al-Qaeda. Well, what about the mom and pop terror groups? The Spanish terrorist group, the ETA, has announced a permanent cease-fire. O RLY? It's kind of hard to believe them when they're still wearing those ridiculously creepy hoods. But, according to TDS, they kind of look like the Elephant Man without their hoods so... maybe it's better to keep hidden, yeah?
