On his show Tuesday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart lampooned the news of Lance Armstrong admitting to doping, saying it appeared painful obvious in retrospect. He compared learning that Armstrong was using performance enhancing drugs to learning that the tooth-fairy isn’t real, “you think about it and, of course, a winged fairy with no job, spends her entire life collecting baby teeth, yet somehow always has money in her pocket to give out.”
