Jon Stewart Can't Believe What NY Pols Are Arguing About Now

Jon Stewart called it "maybe the best 40 minutes any legislative chamber anywhere in the country has ever spent."

The New York State Senate's debate over the official state snack is almost like a "Daily Show" segment by itself, even without Stewart's wry commentary, as legislators argued over issues such as a definition for the word "snack."

"You have breakfast, lunch and dinner," explained Sen. Michael H. Ranzenhofer. "And then you have snacks."

You're not going to believe some of the questions thrown at Ranzenhofer -- or how ready he was with his yogurt-y answers.

"This guy's like the Ken Jennings of yogurt!" declared Stewart on Thursday night's broadcast.

See the segment above for the epic Q&A session in the New York State Senate Chamber. Then watch the clip below for an interruption by the radical yogurt-hating protesters... Code Pinkberry.
