Jon Stewart Learns Why Meteorologists Fry Eggs on a Sidewalk (Video)

With the entire United States in a complete and total meltdown (this past weekend, New York was actually hotter than South Florida, by the way), weather reporters take to the streets to provide a play-by-play of how damned hot it is outside (just in case we didn't figure it out by actually opening the front door to our houses).

Clean Plate Charlie understands the importance of doing stupid things and actually likes when weather people fry eggs on the sidewalk or bake cookies on a car engine (hmmm... sounds like a blog post in the making).

Jon Stewart, on the other hand, was a little confused about why weather people insist on baking pizzas on a New York City street -- until Wyatt Cenac, "Senior Meteorologist" for the Daily Show (it really has one of those?) explained why: Real people might not understand all that "humidity" and "heat index" jargon, but they do get the question "will it hotten food?"
