Jon Stewart and his crew decided to find out what happened if they made good on an old running joke at The Daily Show. Stewart managed to make a mockery of old HuckaJesus, his recent crack about President Obama "marching the Israelis "to the door of the oven," his creepy remarks about wishing he was transgendered so he could shower with girls, along with a host of other sexist comments he made back when he still had his weekend show on Fox, and he did it without uttering a word.

At the end of the show, he explained to the audience what they were seeing in the clip above.

STEWART: For anybody who was watching at home who thought to themselves, “What the hell was going on in that second act there?” Let me explain very quickly. For the past fifteen or sixteen years we've had a running joke that I could really do the show without saying anything, that I could just make stupid faces and grunt, and we never had the balls to try that. So with two weeks to go, we thought, “Yeah, why not?” So that's what we did and I realized I've been working way too hard.

Can you help us out?
