A couple of days ago, I got email from Rob Kutner, who is a writer for my 11 p.m. weekday ritual, The Daily Show.

I wrote him back, saying:
- You know what you need for an apocalypse? Canned bacon, yo! (To which he replied: “Are there any words more delicious than shelf stable?“)

Finally, a little Canadian content: here’s Rob Kutner’s podcast interview by Moxy Fruvous’ Jian Gomeshi for the CBC.
