As you may have noticed, Jon Stewart and the Daily Show took off for a couple of weeks for the Thanksgiving holiday, and while they were away there was a whole lotta pepper sprayin’ goin’ on. There was the casually pepper spray everyone and everything cop at UC Davis, the woman who pepper sprayed her fellow Black Friday shoppers, etc. In short, during the show’s time away we became Pepper Spray Nation.
“We’ve suddenly become a people that use pepper spray to alleviate minor inconveniences,” Stewart said last night. “Pepper spray has become our new car horn.”
I wonder how mace feels about all this? Remember when mace was the nasty thing that got sprayed into people’s faces? Poor mace.
