On the first night of Passover, Jon Stewart took it upon himself to offer some free advice to Barack Obama on some Jewish customs following the President's trip to Israel (it was The Daily Show's first episode in a couple weeks). And first off, it's not necessary for anyone to compliment the matzah. "Unless that matzah slathered in Fluffernutter, or jammed inside a Chipwich, it tastes like the box it came in," he said. "Matzah sucks so bad they had to have a robot bring it to you."

Stewart then addressed a more substantial part of the diplomatic mission: Obama discussed the right for both Israelis and Palestinians to have a state. Wait, that's never been discussed before. Or has it? Even the dollar bill has an opinion on this one.
