Every curious citizen has a theory about what's hidden inside Google's mystery barges and Jon Stewart is no different. Last night on The Daily Show, Stewart sliced through the fervent speculation with a voice of reason: "Let's be clear, it's not normal for an internet search engine to launch secret ocean vessels."

Stewart managed to throw in a Google+ dig and mock that credulous Time magazine cover before putting things in perspective: “I’m pretty sure this is how the movie Cloverfield started.”

If the Coast Guard can't get any answers, maybe Comedy Central can.
