Sometimes, being a stickler's tough work

If I weren't so heartless, if I weren't so humorless, if I weren't such a hard-ass ...

If I didn't believe in keeping plays on names out of headlines, this "Daily Show" hed on an Iraq roundup would have really made me laugh last night: Sadr House Rules

OK, maybe I did chuckle.

When it displayed, the crowd busted up, making Jon Stewart muse: "Enjoy that pun? We have a team of pun specialists."

Stewart gets cheap laughs from the puns, but he addresses them with a smarminess I can appreciate. Is there a lesson in this?

See the clip here.
