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?

Bill Clinton"Mess O' Potomac": If there was ever any doubt that Bush has no mental checkpoint to filter his unscripted words, Bush's recent comment, "I heard somebody say, 'Where's Mandela?' Well, Mandela's dead because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas," pretty much sealed the deal. Oh, that deal is so very, very sealed. Also, I'm not sure how well the Congress/Lionel Hutz comparison works, but I like it whenever someone finds an excuse to use a Simpsons clip.

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"Am I Hot Or Not?": The high-pitched voice gave me a good chuckle. I'd like to imagine that Punxsutawney Phil is really thinking all that in his little groundhog head. "I speak the truuuuth!" Oh, and The Daily Show is really pushing those Jimmy Dean Chocolate Chip Pancakes & Sausage On A Stick jokes. I'm starting to wonder if they're getting paid by Jimmy Dean to advertise that "food" by pretending to hate it... when, in fact, it's delicious and addictive. Senior White House Correspondent Dan Bakkedahl also stopped by to say something. My ears tuned out because, as of late, Bakkedahl-talk sounds like Peanuts adults... but less funny.

Jon StewartMess O' Potomac: The Iraq Study Group have come to the conclusion that everything sucks and -- "Sweet Jesus, is that house made out of bodies?" Heh, that almost made me choke on the water I was drinking.

While Senior White House Correspondent Samantha Bee (she's alive!) got really depressed after reading the report, Military Affairs Expert Dan Bakkedahl promptly began bleeding from the eyes. My hate for Tony Snow somehow managed to double when he complained about the lack of Arabic-interpreters. Better no interpreters than gay interpreters, right? Damn it, Tony.

Jon Stewart"Mess O' Potamia": Of course, we've been stuffing our fat faces full of turducken or participating in Black Friday (or Cyber Monday and it's buddy, Identity Theft Tuesday... the mention of which caused me to do the weirdest little laugh) to really know what's been going on in the Middle East, so here's a quick update... Iraq just experienced its bloodiest week since the beginning of the war. Matt Lauer says it's okay to call it a civil war now. We've been in Iraq longer than we fought in World War II. John Oliver is still awesome. That is all.

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 Show"Give Cease A Chance": Whoo! It's quiet in Lebanon! Senior Fire-Ceaser Rob Corddry briefly elaborated on the situation. Big laughs for his cease fire talk. Fun Fact: A similar method can be used on quarreling children, especially if said children are weilding guns.

"Ministry of Truth": Propoganda-coverage! Gosh. The mid-east is a lot more artistic when it comes to propoganda. All we have are TV ads. TDS showed a Photoshopped picture of the famous National Geographic girl (y'know, the one with the stunning eyes) in a beer hat and the entire audience groaned really loudly. I never realized how precious of an image that is, haha.

The Daily Show"Terrour Plot": Senior Carryonologist John Oliver elaborated on the foiled terrorist plot over in England, live from Heathrow Airport. He contemplated the degree of seriousness in the airport security's new "no liquids" rule. Is yogurt a liquid? What about custard? And 75% of the human body?! John Oliver's fitting in pretty well. I wonder if he's going to do filmed reports any time soon. It'd be interesting to see what those are like.

The Daily ShowOkay, so Condoleezza Rice went to Rome for a meeting about the Lebanon situation. It didn't go so well. Jon showed a Condimeter graphic to illustrate just how bad it was (TDS has been really graphic-happy lately). Of course, the meeting wasn't as great as "Three days alone at Camp David with the President" or "Christmas morning"... It ended up somewhere between "Kofi Annan cops a feel" and "Bin Laden determined to attack WHERE?!". I have a feeling I may have switched up a few of those details, so apologies ahead of time. I swear TDS knows I'm scrambling to type this all down. They probably have a hidden camera on my monitor, broadcasting live right into Jon's office so that they can giggle at my panic.

Jon StewartFirst of all, there's no question we're at war now, because a 24-hour news channel has finally packaged the violence in a dramatic musical montage ("Is Tears for Fears in the back room of MSNBC?"). Got it? Good. Jon worked his history buff angle and brought up the 30th anniversary of Entebbe. It all took place in less than a few hours, there were minimal casualties, it was surgical, stunning. As for the issue in Lebanon, it seems as though Israel is trying to crack the bottom part open, flip it and actually shake the hostages out. Not quite the same case as Entebbe. But either way, it'll make a great movie of the week.

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 ShowOccasionally, I like to make fun of people that say "Internets" or "Interweb" in a non-ironic manner. However, I don't think I've ever heard anything quite as ridiculous as Senator Ted Steven's explanation of what the Internet is... "The Internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck. It's a series of tubes." Oh, and I like this one... "I, just the other day, got an Internet was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?" Well, Jon Stewart knew why, answering, "Maybe it's because he doesn't know jack shit about computers or the Internet." Ignorance is hilarity. Ted Steven's speech is worth a read.
