NY State Senate’s yogurt debate ferments comedy punchlines

If you’re a member of the New York State Senate, this Jon Stewart clip probably won’t be on your list of “must-see videos this morning.” But residents of the Empire State—or anyone in the United States for that matter; even Republicans!—will surely appreciate Stewart making a mockery of a State Senate bill naming yogurt the official snack of New York.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the New York State Senate,” the late-night comedian offered last night as he played clips from the Tuesday debate. “I’m telling you this is may be the best 40 minutes any legislative chamber, anywhere in the country, has ever spent.”

When State Senator Liz Krueger interjects with more questions, however, Mr. Stewart exclaimed, “Are you fucking kidding me! … Krueger, I got no patience for this nitpickery. Nobody–nobody!–wants to hear any more of your petty complaints about the yogurt bill.”

He then played a clip of her raising the issue of lactose intolerance as State Senator Michael Ranzenhofer, the bill’s sponsor, notes the existence of lactose-free soy yogurt. Mr. Stewart was visibly taken aback by the spectacle.

But Mr. Stewart wasn’t done there and a second Daily Show segment was dedicated to faux “Code Pinkberry” protesters and Mr. Stewart’s advice for the state legislature.

“The good people of New York do not give a shit,” he informed them.
