In taking on the Monsanto Protection Act last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart faulted Congress for being mostly unaware that the legislation protecting businesses that want to sell genetically modified foods was hidden in a bigger bill. Stewart compared the process of getting Monsanto passed to buying porno, then hiding it under a bigger purchase that might include, say, Mountain Dew and Funyuns.

There's now an uproar most of Congress wasn't even aware Monsanto was there. "So Congress is now acting with the same level of self awareness as a flatulent grandpa," Stewart said.
