There's a story behind the case of appendicitis that felled Glenn Beck recently. It's not just an isolated incident -- there's a serious conspiracy at work.

But with Beck himself out sick, someone else had to find a chalkboard and tie all the evidence together in a particularly ludicrous fashion. So thank God for Jon Stewart, who managed to do just that, and with a pretty good Beck imitation going on the whole time, no less. One of the funnier "Daily Show" clips in recent memory; you can watch it below.
