Prehistoric Art in Indonesia, a Disastrous Prom Proposal & Sad Santa Photos  | The Daily Show

Every year we learn more
about our past as human beings, and a new discovery in Indonesia might mean that our past
is much older than we thought. Archaeologists are amazed
and excited by the discovery of prehistoric cave art
recently found in Indonesia. Cave art being studied by
Griffith University adademics Adam Brumm and Max Aubert could be the oldest
ever discovered BRUMM: It shows
this incredible hunting scene, which might have
spiritual connotations. NEWSMAN: The big concern now
is that the Sulawesi artwork could vanish. BRUMM:
It’s a real tragedy. This image is… is peeling away
off the wall, essentially. It’s flaking off. It could be gone
within our own lifetime. Uh, so stop touching it. (laughter) This art lasted 44,000 years,
and then these guys show up like, “Oh, no, it’s in danger.
Aw, look at that. “It’s just chipping away. “Look, when I scratch it,
it comes right off. We got to do something, mate.
Bring the sandblaster.” (laughter) You know what I really love about discovering ancient art
in a cave is that it shows that cavemen were more creative
than we think. And it also shows that
they didn’t give a shit about their security deposit. Yeah. They’re just like, “Screw
it, we got no heat, no water. -I’m drawing on the walls.”
-(laughter) And I’m always impressed
that scientists can date exactly how old
these paintings are. You know, it must be, like, a
really crazy chemical analysis. Or they just saw it
in the background of one of Bernie Sanders’
childhood photos. It could be that.
It could be that. -He was seven there.
-(laughter) But let’s move on
to high school proms. It’s that time of the year when young people work up
the courage to get rejected by someone who
didn’t even know they exist. And for one young man,
his prom proposal took a really unexpected turn. A Carson City teen regained
the full use of his hand, but it came at the expense of
another one of his body parts. Doctors detached
Aidan Atkins index toe and used it to recreate
a thumb. Aidan says he wasn’t able
to use the thumb he sawed off, well, because
he couldn’t find it. He lost his thumb trying to make his girlfriend
an invitation to prom Aiden says the accident
happened so fast that he didn’t have time
to react. He says he’s thankful
it wasn’t much worse. Wow. Yo, man, kudos to that guy. That is an amazing story. Like, I’m glad the doctors were
able to give him his hand back, and I’m genuinely impressed
at his great attitude. Like, he had to replace
his thumb with a toe, but he’s still like,
“You know what, life goes on.” -(laughter)
-Yeah. I get a pimple on my forehead,
I’m like, “I’m gonna die! Don’t look at me!” And, guys, you got to admit,
science is amazing. ‘Cause I didn’t know doctors
could put your toe on your hand and it would work as a finger. ‘Cause that basically means
that our toes are replacement fingers. Right? Yeah, you know what it’s like?
It’s like when a shirt comes with extra buttons
sewn in. That’s what God designed–
if we lose a finger, we can just be like,
“Oh, well, seven more to go.” (laughter) And in some ways,
it might even be better having some of your fingers
be toes, you know? Like, now you can get
a mani-pedi at the same time. Just… And by the way,
what an upgrade for that toe. Can we admit that? Yes?
I bet all the other toes must have thrown it
a huge going-away party. Just like, “Did you hear? “Middle toe’s moving up
to the big time! “He’s gonna be a finger!
Yeah…! “Don’t forget us when
you’re holding things, Middy! Don’t forget us!” He’s like,
“I’ll come back, guys. “I’ll help you clip your nails, “and I’ll tell you what
the inside of a nose looks like! -Yay…!”
-(laughter, groans) I actually wonder if this works
for other parts of the body. ‘Cause I’m fascinated now. Like, can you use a leg
as an arm? Or can you use a knee
as a shoulder? I mean, it must be possible
to swap parts, because Donald Trump uses
a vagina as a neck. I mean… (laughter, shouts) Yeah. Just like, “Sometimes
I grab me by the pussy.” All right.
And finally, Christmas is
just around the corner, and apparently, for parents, there’s a fun,
new holiday tradition. Have you ever had your kids pose
for pictures on Santa’s lap? Smiles all around, right? Didn’t think so. Mark Strassmann met
a photographer in Atlanta who embraces the holly
and the not so jolly. STRASSMANN: This is photographer
Jeff Roffman’s studio. In here, a white Christmas
often turns blue. -(crying) -ROFFMAN:
We have parents come in here hoping their kids will cry,
uh, and they leave disappointed if their kids don’t. -Run, everybody, run, run, run!
-(screaming) STRASSMANN:
Roffman was floored parents wanted
their kids to cry. (crying) He had 7,000 photo shoots
available over six weeks. They sold out in ten minutes. Okay, that is so mean. (laughter) Parents are making
their babies cry just so that they can get
a cool-looking picture? You know what I hope? I hope those kids get revenge. I hope in 40 years, they drop their parents off
at a nursing home and then take pictures
of them crying while the Jamaican nurse
is holding them back. Yeah.
That’s what that should be. Just have their parents
on the nurse lap, like, just crying. They’re like,
“Don’t leave me with this lady. I don’t even know who she is.” They’ll be like,
“Her name’s karma, bitch.” (laughter and applause) Nurse will be like,
“Actually, my name’s Gladys, but you’re right.
Your daddy’s a little bitch.” (laughter) This is a great example
of how parents make their kids do things that they say
they shouldn’t do. ‘Cause parents are always like,
“Strangers are dangerous. If you ever feel uncomfortable,
run away.” The kid’s like,
“I’m uncomfortable now.” “Shut up! I’m trying
to get a photo, Timmy.” Like, this whole practice of sitting on an old man’s lap
to get presents is weird to me. That’s why I’m not gonna let
my kids sit on Santa’s lap. If my kids want presents, they can do it
the old-fashioned way: by fighting to the death
on Black Friday.

  1. ok but HOW exactly did a prom proposal lead to the loss of a finger???

  2. OMG My friend Karma, from Jamaica, is a nurse at a nursing home! ROFLMFAO!!!!!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. God? Sorry son ain't no such thing as God you're on your own did the girl turn you down? That too was your God's plan I'm sure.

  4. Lol, I love Trevor!!

  5. If God needs to cut off your thumb to teach you a lesson that means either you or God is an idiot.

  6. I see Indonesia, I press like!

  7. Oh yeah, it is your story – can't wait to go to prom with someone who thinks God wrote this story for you.

  8. 1:20 yeah, that's the real issue though, radioactive dating is highly inaccurate. That drawing could be only 6000 years old much less 40000

  9. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  10. They need to hire an elf with a needle behind Santa,cry you little chit..pokes them with a pin.

  11. Making your kids cry is one thing, but we all know that most photo shoots with infants and toddlers always end in screams. Especially when Santa is involved. Honestly, if the kid is already crying (not enticed, mind you), I don't see a problem taking a couple of photos of it. The parent will comfort the kid right after if they're a good parent. I can't tell you how many family photos there are where me, my sister, and/or my brother are crying. The pics were taken anyway, since they were paid for and it's not like we were gonna shut up anytime soon. Waiting for babies to stop crying is a gamble on time, and that's not something photographers have unless they're paid handsomely for it. So, again, if a kid starts crying, snap a couple of quick pics, then tend to them. No harm done. They're young enough that they won't remember it when their brains fully develop. I can't remember sitting in during a single one of the family photos in which I cried, even though there were plenty. The events weren't traumatic at all.

    Plus, it'll be something funny to bring up when the kid gets older, especially with the way that Santa was posing. XD

  12. These parents are dumb asses

  13. That ending joke pure honey.

  14. What the actual f**k is wrong with people?!

  15. New Earth Christians: โ€œThe Earth is about 6000 years old.โ€
    Archeologists: โ€œ………….about that……โ€

  16. I swear your big toe is needed for balance

  17. that with the crying kids is disturbing…. not just the parents… also that they sold out in 10min…. wtf ๐Ÿ™

  18. "SO STOP TOUCHING IT," I'm dead lol, but that exactly what I was thinking as I saw them tracing "gently" the painting

  19. Ah Americans and there family pictures. What will they invent next.

  20. When they were winding up to explain what new body part replaced his finger, I was so terrified that they were gonna say part of his penis or some shit like that.

  21. yes Trevor you said it:stop touching it. its my country Trevor

  22. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ sometimes I grab me by the pussy

  23. Trevor, it's surprising you were apparently unaware of the toe thumb swap.The first surgery of this type occurred in 1968 in england….the first in the US was in 1972. So, it's not new.

  24. Yay Indonesia ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ
    'Like' if you are an Indonesian who watch this fab video!

  25. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚fighting to death on Black Friday

  26. SEVEN more to go? So Trevor, you only have 8 toes?! ๐Ÿค”

  27. I didn't want my kids to cry, but I let the photographer mall elves off the hook from trying so hard to make them smile. they thought i was crazy when I said yea just go with it we can laugh about it when they are older. Def didn't go in hoping for it though lol

  28. This is graffiti, an should be punished by law. Because that's the world we're living.

  29. So god planned for him to lose a thumb? That kid's got MUCH bigger problems than being maimed… Praise the doctors instead, idiot.

  30. Those parents should not be allowed to see their kids anymore. You are willingly putting them through torment for your own amusement! Proud to say MY parents would never have done that.

  31. Grab him by the neck.

  32. First time Indonesia is acknowledged here and it's my island
    How. The. Hell.

  33. People are so FUC*ING STUPID!! Santa nonsense…wanting your child to cry. Please people like this…Don't have kids- make the world a better place !!

  34. Trevor, you wouldn't believe what body parts can get swapped around. Search "grafting WWI" (yes, the first one) when they first started to experiment with the possibilities. As long as the body part is from you and has the necessary blood supply, you can graft body parts pretty much anywhere.

  35. Nobody's talking about how they WEREN'T ABLE TO FIND THE THUMB?? That will be a nasty surprise for someone in the future.
    Also, don't be like this idiot and use a table saw without protection. This should have never happened.

  36. 44000 years you say mate? Drawings of cows and bulls? Not dinosaurs ๐Ÿฆ• etc… ๐Ÿ˜. The sound of silence

  37. How did he lose the thumb? Was he sawing a wooden frame for the prom question?

  38. Replacing a missing thumb with one of the toes is a very common procedure. It happens every day in every single hospital with a surgical ward. And it has been happening for many decades

  39. the "we" in "Sulawesi" is pronuce like "we" in "west"

  40. Shit! I wouldn't mind chilling with that Jamaican nurse. She fine!

  41. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

  42. I really hate when people touch my monitor screen at work so imagine the cave people rolling in their graves over this lol

  43. That cave painting has already known for years. The difference is just the local archeologists aren't white.

  44. My God would have intervened right before I sliced my thumb off.

  45. Have you heard about "keeladi excavation" ?

  46. Why was he using a saw to make a card

  47. My mom had leg tendons placed in her forearm to she could use her hand and wrist again. Science is crazy good at Frankensteining us back together.

  48. "God does things for a reason"
    You did it to yourself!!!

  49. HAHAHAHA these parents are evil

  50. Ok so thatโ€™s finger/toe is weird. Def couldnโ€™t hold his hand. I donโ€™t like feet as it is. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

  51. America is getting dumber by the day ๐Ÿ˜€

  52. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚The way I laughed

  53. Damn shame. Playing with your child's emotions and causing them unnecessary stress for social media.

    And I'm glad someone finally mentioned President Pussyneck.

  54. I love this man,๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฉ

  55. I am sure this is what Jesus wanted. Little kids afraid of a guy that's suppose to bring them gifts. Cause they do all of this in his name…smh

  56. Santa Claus is a pedophile!

  57. I hope those kids get revenge too ๐Ÿ˜ก

  58. This show has just turned into corporate media distraction. It used to be actually critical of society. I still like it, but is just fluff now. Seriousness has moved to Oliver and Manaj.

  59. I think that accent is actually from Barbados though lol

  60. Those Santa pictures seem like child exploitation. lol

  61. Blaming a fake ass god for your stupidity. Man fears responsibility more than anything else. Instead of saying i did something stupid and fucked up its god did it for a reason.

  62. Starting from the bottom now we here – big toe

  63. Finally, Indonesia again

  64. I think the parents are doing it on purpose, so their kids are terrified of Santa.
    What would you like Santa to bring you this year, Liam?
    Okay, if you insist.

  65. So wrong

  66. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™
    1:00 ๐Ÿ’˜

  67. "Her name is KARMA bitch!"

  68. People sound so stupid when they say that โ€œgod has a planโ€ nonsense.

  69. A trauma as a Christmas gift… wow

  70. Oh yeah just gloss over how the ancient cave art depicted furries.

    Cultural erasure.

    Parents: "so we've decided to start this new tradition called torture…"

  74. 4:25 is that mom poking her son to make him cry?

  85. The one time I was taken as a child to see Santa at the mall, I was around 6-7yo… I thought he was scary & I didn't have my picture taken. The end.

  86. What's funny about lying to your kids about a big creepy man coming down a chimney and then making them cry? People are really messed up

  87. This with santa, that parrents are fighting against corporations trying to make their kids ask for presents by using santa claus character. This way kids will run away if they see santa on some ie. toy comercial or so.
