last week tonight with john oliver


John Oliver explains why we should all be very excited for the World Cup. And why we should also hate FIFA with every ounce of hatred we can collectively muster. 

Government is not an à la carte system where you can pick and choose based on your beliefs. Taxation is more of an all-you-can-eat salad bar. You don’t get to show up and say, ‘Look, I know it costs $10.99, but I’m only paying $7.50 because I have a moral objection to beets.

Everyone has their own version of beets. If you really want to be treated like a person, corporations, then guess what? Paying for things you don’t like is what it feels like to be one.

John Oliver Destroys Pumpkin Spice Lattes, The ‘Coffee That Tastes Like A Candle’ 

It’s that time of year: Leaves are changing, Halloween decorations are on display, and cable knit sweaters are everywhere. But most importantly, the all-famous Pumpkin Spice Latte is back at your local Starbucks.

John Oliver Expected To Catch Miss America In A Lie, But What He Found Was Kinda Worse

JK Rowling and Scottish Independence
  • Newscaster:Harry Potter author, JK Rowling, wants Scotland to stay part of the UK. Rowling had donated 1.6 million dollars to the "Better Together" campaign.
  • John Oliver:Yeah, but that's not really a surprise, is it? She famously wrote a book where a red-head played second fiddle to a magical Englishman. "Come along, Ron, come along. I shall have all the powers and your brothers can die fighting my wars! Come along, come along."
