On last night’s Daily Show, Wyatt Cenac visited Sweden to see if it’s the Socialist nightmare Glenn Beck keeps telling us it is. After the initial excitement of “government sanctioned hand-jobs,” Wyatt visits pop star Robyn’s crib and learns the ugly truth. She only has one TV!:

The Daily Show With Jon Stewart M – Th 11p / 10c
The Stockholm Syndrome
Daily Show

Economic Crisis Political Humor

That was funny, even if the whole joke kind of rips off Redman’s Cribs episode (aka the best Cribs episode.) It’s been like nine years, so it’s probably fine.

  1. That was such a great segment. I think many Americans who watch FOX would be afraid of being European because it seems less powerful somehow on multiple levels. My favorite line was “the possibilities of CAPITALISM.” I think the possibilities of capitalism are spelled out pretty well with the Ying Yang Twins. What kind of civilized society would we be if we couldn’t spend all our g’s on Crunk Juice and Ramen???

  8. How can someone stand so much paid vacation? Only CEOs deserve that much vacation.

    Sweden = Swedes
    Switzerland = Swiss
    Two completely different countries

    the Swedish are too social, i agree.
    But the attitude of the Americans is just SICK.
    The richest country in the world, but still a lot of poverty in the big cities (mostly black people, off course). America could learn (a bit ) from the swedish people …
