John Oliver caught up on his “fan” mail (aka YouTube comments) in his latest web exclusive.
“As always, our fan mail comes from YouTube comments, the most cogent written argument for never learning how to read. I would like to share some of my favorite comments, not all of which are hateful. In fact, one viewer even wrote, ‘John Oliver has magnificent eyebrows,’ which I appreciated — and I’ll tell you why — because no one has called any part of my body magnificent. Ever. Then I got a little confused when I saw that someone else had written, ‘John Oliver’s eye brows are alien caterpillars and move independently of each other’ and I thought, well that’s okay, that does technically still fall under the umbrella of magnificent. ”
