'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' Bids A Fond Farewell to Correspondent Samantha Bee: VIDEO

Bee

After twelve years of laughs, Samantha Bee parted ways with The Daily Show last night to begin a new chapter in her career. Host Jon Stewart led the sendoff with a montage of some of Bee's more unforgettable correspondent bits, including her hilarious segment back from 2013 where she interviewed anti-gay Christians claiming to be the victims of bullying. 

Bee will be missed, but hopefully fans won't have to wait long before seeing her jump back in the spotlight (as a host!) on one of the two projects she's currently working on for TBS.

Watch the emotional tribute, AFTER THE JUMP...

Anti-Gay Activist Bill Whatcott Leaves Canada To Bring Hate To The Philippines: VIDEO

Anti-gay Christian activist Bill Whatcott has moved to the Philippines after claiming that he was forced to leave Canada.

Last year, Whatcott and fellow wingnut Peter LaBarbera were arrested at the University of Regina, Canada for displaying materials the university described as "graphic" and against the institution’s policy.

Whatcott was also sued after he claimed that LGBT activists were trying to recruit children via the public school system.

Praising his good works in the name of god, Whatcott said:

“My ministry to Canada has come to an end, at least for the foreseeable future. Now, I am in the Philippines with my wife.

“I have pretty much given the last quarter century of my life to fighting for a Judeo Christian vision for Canada, especially in the areas of life, sexuality and family.

“While the path I chose was somewhat controversial, devastating to my secular career prospects in Canada, and indeed a path that rendered me a pariah in the eyes of many, I am quite happy with some of what I accomplished.   

“My efforts in defending Canada against the homosexual onslaught has been less successful in my view, perhaps more costly on a personal level, though these efforts have not been completely in vain.”

Whatcott estimates he handed out at least half a million anti-gay fliers in Canada since 2002. This material claimed that public schools were enabling the “recruitment” of children. One pamphlet said that children would be taught “how wonderful it is for two men to sodomize each other.”

Jon Stewart, Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert #breaktheinternet With Sultry #TBT Instagram Post

Stewart

Quick hashtag linguistics lesson for the uninitiated: #TBT stands for "Throwback Thursday", and accompanies pictures and videos of yesteryear for reminiscing and, more often, mockery; #breaktheinternet is referencing some bit of news, usually trivial, that inexplicably drives massive amounts of traffic and attention, Kim Kardashian's ass on the cover of Paper being one of the more recent examples.

All caught up? Good.

Yesterday the Instagram account for The Daily Show decided to try their hand at breaking the internet with a Throwback Thursday video from the golden years of Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Steve Carell. The video features seduction, saxophone music, and an utter absence of shirts.

No more needs to be said, you just need to click through and watch the short video AFTER THE JUMP...
