The government may be shut down, but comedy stops for no one. With that in mind, “The Daily Show” offered a simple explanation of how Obamacare works, with a commercial starring Johnny Knoxville from “Jackass.”
Of course, there’s only one way he knows how to do things, with tasers and a kick in the crotch. So that’s exactly what Johnny gets, along with being slammed through a table, while explaining how important it is for people to have health insurance.
If you can’t take Knoxville’s word for it, whose can you take?

Chris E. Hayner is equal parts nerd, crazy person and coffee. He watches too much TV, knows more about pro wrestling than you do and remembers every single show from the TGIF lineup. You may have seen him as a pro-shark protester in "Sharknado 3." His eventual memoir will be called "You're Wrong, Here's Why..." TV words to live by: "I'm a firm believer that sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing."
