Watch: Jon Stewart's Hilarious Take on Sony Hack

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart jokingly berated North Korea for doing the unspeakable by allegedly thwarting the release of the Interview. 

“Listen, North Korea, you can mess with a lot of things,” Stewart said. “Our postal system, our water supply. But when you start f*cking with our holiday releases — the precious cinematic delights we partake in to avoid having to talk to our families — you’ve stepped on a landmine.”

Stewart goes on to outline all the steps the United States is taking in retribution. After all, these hackers violated our privacy and read our emails. Who would do something like that? Hint: America's very own NSA.
