No Time For Deep Dives So John Oliver Takes Some Shallow Ones

John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight was off this weekend for the Fourth of July, so in lieu of his usual 15-minute “deep dive” into a complex topic, he posted this rapid-fire series of shallow dives into: bagels, seagulls, and shit.

Oliver skipped over the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the 12-country trade deal that involves 40 percent of the global economy and is nearing completion this week, because it’s too complicated for a four-second take. But it would be great if that were his next episode. If anyone can pick the TPP apart for the masses, it’s the guy who got tens of thousands excited about Net Neutrality.

At least we all learned something here today: Al Roker and Lenny Kravitz are cousins.

Enjoy:




He is so right about bagels.  Terrible.
