John Oliver officially takes the reins of “The Daily Show” on Monday (June 10), but he started marking his territory behind the desk a little bit early.

And we mean “marking his territory” literally. As you can see in this clip from Thursday’s show, Oliver does some unspeakable things to regular host Jon Stewart‘s pens during what was supposed to be Stewart’s farewell “Moment of Zen.”

Stewart is taking the summer off to direct his first feature film, “Rosewater.” Oliver will fill in as host for eight weeks of original shows starting Monday (the show will also be in reruns for four weeks during the summer).

How do you think Oliver will do as host?
