"Last night cannot be unseen. Yes, we all shared a few laughs as you gave us your list of reasons for the transformation, but our laughter turned to tears when we realized the clean-shaved Jon Stewart we knew and loved was naught but a memory," - style blogger Rika Nurrahmah, begging the Daily Show host to shave off his new go-tee.

As a strong supporter of facial hair, I do wish to concur with Stewart himself when he noted that he was twenty years late with the go-tee. Damn right. Go for the full beard, or a super-cool, ahead of the curve mustache. I'm afraid I can't look at him without thinking of Colonel Sanders right now. Or three words: Just For Men.
