About three weeks ago I got slammed with the worst case of hay fever I ever experienced. It actually led to an infection in my lungs. Yuck. The media LOVES to play up the idea that this is the worst allergy season ever. Really? Year after year? The worst.
Well Jon Stewart of the Daily Show has applied his critical thinking and comic genius to look at the sneezy, scratchy eye phenomenon and questions if it really is getting worse. The verdict? Hell yeah!
In summarizing the segment, Ed Mazza, in the Huffington post writes:
Amidst his diatribe, Stewart was interrupted by Mike Tringale of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, who explained that all those breathless news reports were actually true. In recent years, each allergy season really has been worse than the previous one.
And you can blame global warming.
Check it out for yourself. Classic John Stewart and great interaction with Mike Tringale.
