On his show Tuesday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart poked fun at London, which has been plagued by numerous security and transportation problems in the run up to the Olympic games.
The hotel the where Olympics officials are staying was supposed to be guarded by 80 security officers, but only two showed up and one was arrested for marijuana possession.
“You know it’s bad when Johnny Wake-and-Bake is the responsible guard,” Stewart joked. “Can’t imagine what is in the pockets of the other 78 guys who didn’t show up.”
Stewart also expressed his disappointment with the London Olympics planned opening ceremony, which apparently consists of letting “a few dozen sheep loose on the Teletubbies set.”
