Jon Stewart on Tuesday night offered some brief thoughts on the recent rioting in London.

"Please tell me The Clash is reunited and are shooting a new album cover," he said, looking at images of the burning city.

As well as dinging British Prime Minister David Cameron's response -- namely returning from vacation after three days of riots -- Stewart noted a particularly British element of the street action:

"Here's what you've gotta love about anarchy in the U.K. -- even their looters queue up."
