29 Reasons Jon Stewart Is The Most Perfect Man On Earth

Hi Jon. Thanks for daily showing me your stunning good looks and flawlessly erudite charm.

1. Because he was the cutest athlete of all time.


He played soccer at the College of William & Mary, from which he graduated in 1984.

2. And he even made this haircut look semi-decent.

3. He’s a self-made comedian.


After college, Stewart worked as a contingency planner for the New Jersey Department of Human Services, a contract administrator for the City University of New York, a puppeteer for children with disabilities, a soccer coach at Gloucester High School in Virginia, a caterer, a busboy, a shelf stocker at Woolworth’s, and a bartender as he honed his comedy act at places like the Comedy Cellar.

4. He’s the first person we turn to for trenchant coverage of even the worst news.

5. In 2009, Americans voted him their most trusted newsman.

In 2010, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters that Stewart may well have helped pass a health care bill for 9/11 first responders.

7. Because you would look like a total idiot wearing this hoodie and not like a suave GQMF.

8. He once debated Bill O’Reilly and totally won.

Amazing how the haters & losers keep tweeting the name “F**kface Von Clownstick” like they are so original & like no one else is doing it...
