A Picture of Jon Is Worth a Thousand Words, by Chaney
A Dozen Words, by Annie-Wan
question people ask me the most is, "Why don't you just have the dermatologist
remove it?" The second question people ask me the most is, "How can I get a
tape of Jon in ____?"
the JSEB has come to your rescue! Actually, more specifically, Nikki, our Webmaster/Dryer
Lint Inspector, has come to your rescue. Nikki has a collection of great Jon
material (including an unedited copy of Unleavened from HBO -- yes, that's right
-- stop screaming), and she's got a hankerin' for some copyin'. Getting copies
might entail some labor on your part (signing over corneas, sacrificing first-born
children, revealing nuclear launch codes, etc.), but I guarantee that you will
be a better person for it.
at email@example.com for more info. Having dubbed some tapes myself, I
know that it's a HUGE pain to do, so please remember to be patient and nice.
(For more prompt service, pucker up and never, ever let go.)
of Jon Is Worth a Thousand Words
heard the phrase, "A Picture is worth a thousand words"? I recently reorganized
some pictures on my wall -- friends, family, and Jon Stewart. I found myself
thinking of that phrase while looking at an autograph. It's a Jon picture from
the early 90s. Jacket, white shirt, leaning against a tree. Most of you have
probably seen it here.
night while watching the local news that picture caught my eye again. I asked
myself, "Could I find a thousand words from that photograph? I got out notebook
and start writing. Here's a sample: "His
beautiful eyes are the first thing I notice. Looking back at me, light, just
so perfect it makes your heart melt. 'Swoon' was the word I came up with." [Editor's
note: Chaney offered to hide under a rock after sending me this sample, but
note that this IS an estrogen brigade, and swooning at the sight of Jon comes
with the territory. My apologies to the straight guys and lesbians in the club.]
more than a half an hour later I couldn't think anymore, and The Daily Show
was about to come on. So I took a marker and started counted the words per line
-- then adding them together per page. Did I successfully find a thousand words?
Unfortunately, if my calculations are correct, I got 573 words. Perhaps I'll
try again with a new picture at another time.
here's your mission people! Find a picture of Jon on the JSEB site and see if
you can get a thousand words from it. Go for it! Tell the newsletter what you
think. Just hit the reply button and please provide a link to the picture you're
describing. If you need inspiration, check out the pictures at http://www.jonstewart.net/pics.html.

love Playing By Heart. Some people hate it. I love it. I laughed, I cried, I
giggled, I belched.
love Gillian Anderson. Some people hate her. I love her. My computer is named
Dana. (Really.) But I don't love her when she's staring at Jon, 'cause dude,
that is NOT cool. Bitch be stealing my man?
