On Wednesday, "The Daily Show" introduced its newest correspondent, former "SNL" writer Michael Che. While Che, an apparent expert on the ongoing conflict in Syria, fared better than Jordan Klepper on his first day several months ago, Che was upstaged by veteran correspondent Aasif Mandvi. Mandvi was rather territorial about the coverage of coverage involving Islam, which includes terrible puns like "Bashar-al-A-sucks." (Warning: lots of dumb puns ahead)
