    I caught a repeat of the Daily Show last night in which they did a segment on the lead paint toy recall. John cut to the British gent standing in a room full of toys, which John assumed to be a toy store. The guy says no its his apartment, actually its his parents apartment. Good stuff, and too true on too many levels.

    Of note, the same guy previously did a segment in which he claimed Diebold voting machines were Transformers and cut to a shot of G1 Ratchet attacking horrified voters, lol.

    You know, that could be a plot point in a potential TF sequel. If the AllSpark was capable of turning pop machines and XBOX's into Transformers, I'm sure voting machines would be no problem. Throw some political conspiracy into the TF-mix ;)

    I actually saw that episode with the Ratchet news article. That was pretty funny, as mostly anything on The Daily Show.

    Oh yeah, I remember that segment. John Oliver is terrific. I'm a big fan of the Daily Show & the Colbert Report.

    Did anyone see the ep of the Colbert Report where he interviewed a guy who makes sculptures out of Lego building blocks?
