Paula Deen made things just a little too easy for John Oliver last night on The Daily Show. In discussing her recent troubles (she's a racist) there was just a little too much joke-potential. For example: "The n-word? Which one did she use, because I know it wasn't non-fat? Boom!"
But after a while, Oliver had to settle his stomach. "This is such a rich comedic buffet," he said. "I think might be almost full of Paula Deen jokes." So he made a glass of what looked to be Alka-Seltzer mixed with Pepto-Bismol.
Oliver later brought on correspondent Jessica Williams, who diagnosed Deen with either "type one or type two racism." She offered a remedy for Deen, the name of which is similar to Nicorette.
