It's that time again, a Friday afternoon, and we here at mwbh know exactly what our dedicated fans want: MORE JON STEWART!

Admit it. You secretly like his snarky, condescending attitude, if only on the rare occasions when he's not a marionette for the bourgeois elite. And, what with the kind of news cycle we've had in the last week, you just know there was comedy gold waiting to be told. And we've got it for ya! [CONTENT WARNING: Occasional muted expletives.]

Not that it was easy for our host of high jinks, since ...

Stewart was most “hurt” by former Pakistani Prime Minister Pervez Musharraf for allowing Bin Laden to “chill” in Pakistan, since Stewart once shared an enjoyable cup of tea with Musharraf when he appeared as a guest on The Daily Show.

When the United States were established -- referred to in the plural before the "Civil War;" more on that later -- the Founding Fathers were wary of foreign entanglements. They knew that a policy of interventionism created strange, even dangerous bedfellows. We've been working with what passes for a stable, workable government of Pakistan, and Osama's right in their pocket the whole time. But can we complain to them? Can we cut off $1.5 billion in foreign aid? No, that would be racist, or something.

But who cares when it's this hilarious? Just sit back and watch the world descend into utter chaos, for this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.
