Thanks to The Daily Show, I know more about American politics than I do about anything that happens in Britain. I admit that when I hear the words 'Prime Minister', I still look around the television screen for evidence of Tony Blair.
But it's a worrying time for satire when something good happens. And the new President of the United States could be a real problem for someone like me, who is mainly into global news for kicks and giggles.
But last night Mr Coffee and I sat on the sofa and howled at this.
So it might just be okay.
