Jon Stewart Plays "Sad Libs" To Educate Us On Yemen (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

With all the attention Yemen is receiving after the Christmas day bomber, Jon Stewart felt it was necessary to educate us about the nation. As he acknowledged, "getting attacked is the only way Americans learn about world geography."

What's the best way to help us learn about a potential new threat? A variation of Mad Libs, appropriately titled "Sad Libs: A Tragic Game For Ages 9--99." Stewart filled in all the blanks about the nation located next to Oman, getting particularly discouraged when finding out that Yemen (like the other recent threats) is filled with treacherous mountains. He jokingly pleaded: "Can't we get in a war with paved countries?"

As game finished, Stewart summed it up pretty accurately: "That's Yemen. A place we'll be hearing about for 24 hours a day until we get bogged down there and the insurgency moves to Oman."
