Daily Show: FOX News Says Barbara Eden Ruined Halloween

Jon gets his early dose of crazy from the brown hair guy who's not Steve Doocy on FOX & Friends, who says he was "traumatized" by Barbara Eden's sexy outfit on "I Dream Of Jeannie" back in the 60's, and blames her for all the slutty Halloween costumes of today.

Jon: "Luckily for my pre-conceived notions about the FOX network, the conversation soon got back on the express to Crazy Town."

Brown hair guy who's not Steve Doocy: "Here's the problem, though. In 1970 or '68, Barbara Eden lowered the bar by wearing that sexy outfit, traumatized me as a child, and then every kid wore the Barbara Eden outfit..."

Jon: This is Barbara Eden's fault?! Yes, I too remember the trauma caused by Barbara Eden's genie outfit. I could sometimes remember watching I Dream of Jeannie and traumatizing myself two or three times an episode. And that was before TiVO.
