Daytime diva Oprah Winfrey gave Jon Stewart transportation to bring his studio audience from New York to his upcoming Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear on the Mall in Washington later this month.
CNN primetime anchor Larry King gave Stewart a portable toilet.
“There’s some controversy about whether there are portable potties at the rally,” Larry King said while interviewing Stewart on his CNN show Wednesday night about the rally, Stewart’s new book (“Earth”) and the midterm elections.
“We have been in contact with the Porta-Potty people,” Stewart said. “Right now they say they are ‘efforting’ Porta-Pottys. We will have toilets — they may not be enclosed. I guess what I’m saying is we will either have toilets, or we will have shovels.”
“Well we have something for you,” King said. “I wanted to do my bit, for the rally attendees. This will be shipped to you. Open the curtain, please!”
Down comes the curtain, revealing a brand-spanking-new traveling toilet.
“There it is! The first potty for the rally!” King bragged
“Is that the hyperbaric chamber that they store you in when you’re not working?” Stewart asked.
“I don’t know if you know this, but you can get Porta-Pottys pretty easy — we’ve got a ton of them,” Stewart broke the news gently to King. “Can we still take this one? We will delineate it as yours. I’m honored.”
“You don’t know what to say, do you?” King cackled gleefully. “Jon Stewart is stumped!”
“You know what — that’s the one I’m gonna use,” Stewart said. “You’re a good man.”
