(Newser) – It's not often that the Daily Show and Fox News are on the same page—but it seems the sequester is bringing them together. Both shows are ridiculing the current automatic-budget-cut obsession, Mediaite reports, with Jon Stewart last night donning a hazmat suit. We're "four days away from everything we know as the American way of life being destroyed," correspondent Samantha Bee warned the host, noting that the Obamas are "bucket-listing" (see the president's round of golf with Tiger Woods, and Michelle's dancing and Oscars gig).

Meanwhile, on Fox News' The Five, Greg Gutfeld held that "we’re arguing over pennies as our banks are essentially burning." Those on edge about the sequester seem to think "two-headed carnivorous cats" are on their way to "force humans underground." Perhaps even worse: "There will be a new Jim Carrey movie." Gutfeld added: "“What do you call tens of thousands of kids losing their Head Start services? A head start."
