On his The Daily Show faux news program, comedian Jon Stewart mocked Texas Governor Rick Perry's remarks comparing being gay to alcoholism.

The point of Perry's analogy was to defend reparative therapy, which attempts to alter the sexuality of people from gay to straight.

“You know what's sad?” Stewart told his viewers. “Being gay is not a choice, but being a Texas Republican is.”

After Stewart explained that some male patients are advised to defecate in a jar and sniff it each time they are attracted to a member of the same sex, he added: “So my advice is the next time you feel the urge to be a Texas Republican, to replace science textbooks with pictures of humans riding dinosaurs, or ban same-sex marriage, or put on [a GOP elephant hat], shit in a jar and sniff it. It won't cure you, the science proves that, but do it anyway. Hopefully, it'll remind you of what assholes you're being.”
