Some of my fellow Phillies fans seem to be taking exception with a joke from last night's Daily Show in which Jon Stewart — a Mets fan, unfortunately — jokes that launching a missile toward Hawaii on the 4th of July would be like "being an asshole in Philadelphia".
Last night, in the middle (around the 2 minute mark) of a segment on Kim Jong Il's latest missile threat, the Daily Show host took the opportunity to take a swing at Philadelphians, saying, basically, that we're all assholes. Why does this fill me with douchey irrational rage?
I understand how he feels. In fact, after seeing that clip earlier this afternoon, I was — for, like, twelve seconds — kind of similarly annoyed.
But then I remembered that we're the reigning World Series Champions and currently leading the division, and the Mets are pretty much made of ass.
And then I felt a lot better.
