It's been a big week for same-sex marriage, with both national and state-level flux on the issue.
Tuesday, North Carolina added an amendment to their Constitution that bans not only same-sex marriage, but all civil unions and domestic partnerships. Even for straight people.
On the other end of the spectrum, President Obama officially endorsed same-sex marriage during a TV appearance Wednesday.
Regarding the North Carolina ban, he joked: "But you know what, actually? That is a step towards equality, since many opposite-sex couples will now enjoy the same lack of rights same-sex couples have always never had."
And regarding the popular defense that allowing two men or two women to marry would open a Pandora's box of human-dog or human-car marriages, Stewart simply asked: "Does your wife know that you can't see the difference between the consensual love that leads to matrimony and the enjoyment you get from a Dairy Queen Blizzard? Nobody would mistake these two things."
