Jon Stewart Buying A Farm Makes About As Much Sense As These 7 Made Up Rumors

Is Greenacres the place for Jon Stewart? On Tuesday, Ecorazzi reported that the Left's favorite political satirist Jon Stewart has allegedly bought a farm in New Jersey to provide a sanctuary for rescued farm animals during his post- Daily Show retirement. Some aspects make sense: Stewart and his wife Tracey Stewart are very active in a nonprofit called Farm Sanctuary that rescues farm animals (Farm Sanctuary even named two lambs Jon and Tracey, in their honor), so it's not totally outside the realm of possibility that the couple would want to dedicate more time to their charity work. Yet, the idea of Stewart — one of New York City's most iconic citizens — trading in cannolis and dollar slices for roosters and crop rotations sounds a bit farfetched.

In this crazy Internet world of death hoaxes and photoshop trickery, who knows what's true? Some of the more outlandish claims end up having weird moments of accuracy, then something as simple as a Friends reunion turns into the biggest internet hoax ever. (Not that I'm still bitter...) If Stewart really is buying a farm, then no doubt the animals he's rescuing couldn't be in safer hands.

However — as long as we're investing energy in hypothetical dreamlands — I thought it would be fun to manufacture some rumors of my own! Here are seven made up rumors that make more sense than the idea of Stewart owning a farm.
