As we've been discussing here, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart and Fox The Five and Cashin' In host Eric Bolling have been having a bit of a feud lately, going back and forth over anything from their "latte salute" nonsense, to the shaming of SNAP recipients, to Bolling whining about how mean Stewart was being to him when he heard he was leaving the show, to you name it, with Bolling ending up on the losing end of the feud, to put it mildly.

Stewart made sure to tweak Bolling one more time during his interview with his The Five co-host this Wednesday: Jon Stewart tells Fox’s Dana Perino: Our shows working together would make a ‘sh*t taco’:

While Fox News’ Dana Perino seemingly tried to act as a peacemaker between The Five and Jon Stewart’s Daily Show on Wednesday, Stewart quickly put the kibosh on that idea.

“It’s like Reeses peanut butter cups,” Perino told him. “Maybe we could all get together here and have a mashup.”

“I think of it more as a sh*t taco,” Stewart countered. “I’m not saying who’s who. I’m just saying it’s not necessarily two great tastes that go great together. What do they do for food over there?”

“Not enough,” she quickly replied.

Stewart also peppered the interview with sarcastic references to Perino’s co-host Eric Bolling, calling him “the dumb guy” and eye-rolling when Perino told him that Bolling named his dog Freedom after the Freedom Tower in New York City.

“My dog’s named Holocaust,” Stewart countered. “I’m just saying, you want to have a dog tragedy-off, I think I’ve got that covered.”

Stewart wrapped things up by telling Perino to "tell the dumb guy I said hi." I await him responding by trying to give Stewart some more advice on how to be funny.
