As riots continue to roil London and other British cities, some Americans are trying to spread light on the upheaval. Leave it up to Jon Stewart to try to make people laugh while putting the serious situation across the pond into perspective.
In a segment on The Daily Show called “Sh*tzkrieg,” Jon tried to give everyone a good laugh while showing footage of the serious matter at hand.
“As [the riots] spread through London and beyond, they became more rooted in proletarian rage/the desire for things stores normally make you pay for,” he said.
He added: “Here’s what you gotta love about anarchy in the UK — even their looters queue up!”
Jon even displayed a picture of the rioters doing just that.
