(Newser) – Jon Stewart shed some real blood during a mock press conference last night on the Daily Show. The host, while offering his "resignation" for going too easy on his old friend Anthony Weiner, accidentally slashed his hand on some broken glass while making a margarita, reports Mediaite. He wasn't seriously hurt, and taping continued after a pause.

During the mock presser, set up to resemble Weiner's the previous day, Stewart explained that the decision to run with material about John Edwards and Sarah Palin (rather than skewer Weiner) had been all his. John Oliver pretended to take over as host, promising to cover Weiner cruelly, and telling Stewart that he should photograph himself like the congressman did "so you can remember what balls look like."
