As a rule, Jon Stewart tends to leave the God talk to his Comedy Central colleague Stephen Colbert. But on Monday, spurred by the latest eruption of violence in the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the host decided it was time for a heart-to-heart with the man upstairs.
“I’m really not sure what to say,” he began timidly. “Thank you for the moon, and uh, thank you for certain kinds of fish, especially the white flaky kind.”
After a lengthy apology for his adolescent fixations with Ann-Margret and Olivia Newton-John, Stewart eventually got to the serious stuff, urging God to pay some attention to the crisis.
