I happened to catch this clip, on ‘Morning Joe‘, on MSNBC, this morning.

I had to watch it over and over again. I was lying in bed (as I am wont to do in the morning), clutching my cup of coffee (kindly provided by my dear wife). I had to put the cup down (on its electric heater) because I was in paroxysms of laughter. It just cracked me up. I laughed, I laughed and I laughed a bit more. Oh, Jon Stewart. I like his stuff on the pope too. I post that on my pope blog. All the good Catholics that read that blog, and we are talking 3,000 a day, dare not visit any joke, uncatholic sites. But, it is OK if they watch it on my site, because mine is a pope site. So, I do this as a public service. Put all the pertinent joke videos on my blog. Whatever anybody says, I always aim to make people happy. But, poor ol’ Mormon Mitt. I am sorry, but he just makes me laugh and all of those that rally though that he could beat my man, my President.

We won’t see it in the Northern Hemisphere until next week. It would, of course, be better with binoculars or a small telescope. It, alas, is not going to be as bright as initially hoped.

But, this is only the teaser, the support act, for the main cometary event of the year — possibly the century. And I am here talking as one that saw and remembered C/1995 O1 (Hale-Bopp) in 1997.

The BIG ONE will be around Thanksgiving/Hanukkah 2013. C/2012 S1 (ISON). That will be a show. Mark my word.


Hale-Bopp c. 1997.
