Twitter got a good laugh out of Stewart's apology to all of the penises he had inadvertantly compared to a horrible person.

Years may have passed since Stewart's epic takedown of Carlson, but it seems his feelings towards the Fox News host still haven't changed.

Way back in 2004, when Jon Stewart and Carlson had their initial conflict, Stewart told the Fox host:
"You have a responsibility to the public discourse, and you've failed miserably."
It seems not a lot has changed.
