Toppington Von Monocle

Toppington Von Monocle, Jon Stewart's "biggest fan" quotes the ancient Roman philosopher Catullus's Poem 16 on the show, (link here) last Tuesday night: "Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo" regarding the sophistication of the Daily Show audience, and what Toppington wants to do to Fox news commentators who attack TDS.

For a link to see exactly what this translates into, see here: wiki link
or here: Guardian UK link

(the wiki link is not recommended for Work environments, where a Work IT Admin tracks all of your internet usage)

TDS writers are amazing - comedy genius. The Gospel chorus that Stewart then uses (twice this week) is hilarious as well.

Following the craft of comedy, which for 1000s of years has included social commentary. Not trying to be "Fair & Balanced" - but then again, that's not Comedy Central's completely ignored catch phrase or motto!
