'Daily Show' Offers Souvenir Plates of UK Rioters' Attack on Royals (VIDEO)

John Oliver Offers Souvenir Riot Plates on 'Daily'British comedian John Oliver understands Americans: He knows we are obsessed with his country's royal family. Yes, there's that whole engagement thing. But given that 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM) is (largely) a political program, he's more likely to focus on London's student riots over tuition fees. But riots plus royal family? Gold mine.

"You're probably watching these historic riots and thinking, 'Wow, Camilla Parker Bowles' expression was absolutely priceless. Is there any way that I could preserve that memory for a lifetime?'" he joked.

Yes we can! Oliver and Olivia Munn proceeded to, er, sell "a selection of individually numbered commemorative plates" featuring Bowles' and Prince Charles' reactions to protesters attacking their car. The prize piece displays Bowles' shocked mug in a moment utterly lacking in royal refinement.

Get your Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert fix -- VIDEO!

Jon and Stephen lose it.To celebrate the Emmy nods garnered by both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report (and to post something Jon/Stephen-related during this week of repeats), I present to you one of my favorite TDS moments.

This hails from the ancient days when Stephen Colbert was a correspondent on TDS. Whereas Jon often starts laughing during the program, Stephen's always tremendously solid and his character breaks are few and far between (especially in his TDS days). I remember being in tears from laughing so hard when this first aired (it's amazing how Stephen looks like he's crying painfully when he can't stop laughing). The whole clip is pretty funny, but the best bit starts two minutes into the video.

The Daily Show goes bananas! After the jump...
