Tiki on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”: Part 3


On tonight’s episode of “The Daily Show,” Jon Stewart was thoroughly enjoying the irony that the IRS is being audited due to their recent shenanigans. Apparently part of their flagrant spending was dropping $60,000 on two training videos spoofing “Star Trek” and “Gilligan’s Island,” starring IRS employees.


Other folks’ first thoughts might have been: “That’s outrageous!” However, mine was: “With that kind of budget they could have gotten better tikis than those Party City-style ones! They should have gone to Oceanic Arts.”

Tiki on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”

Jon Stewart on The Daily Show

I tend to like Stephen Colbert and his antics a bit more than “The Daily Show,” but Jon Stewart’s sketch on the November 12 episode won him some love back. In this bit, His Dreaminess was settling in at home to watch some Fox News with a teddy bear, some snacks and….a tiki mug!

Plastic tiki mugs

Yeah, it’s a pink plastic number with a squiggly straw rather than a bonafide mug, but it was fun to spot anyway. Plus it had a pineapple garnish! Props to the prop master for incorporating tiki into my second-favorite fake news show.
