WELCOME TO "THE DAILY SHOW"!

MY NAME IS JON STEWART.

OH, WE GOT A GOOD ONE TONIGHT.

MY GUEST TONIGHT, NEW YORK METS PITCHER AND RECENT CY YOUNG RECIPIENT-- CY YOUNG RECIPIENT--

R.A. DICKEY IS GOING TO BE JOINING US ON THE PROGRAM.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) THE MAN.

MAY BE THE FIRST GUEST IN THE HISTORY OF THIS PROGRAM TO BE TRADED WHILE I AM TALKING TO HIM.

(LAUGHTER) THEY MAY JUST -- THEY MAY COME IN AND TAKE HIM AWAY.

(LAUGHTER) I THINK I'LL ASK HIM WHAT RACE HE'D LIKE TO BE.

(LAUGHTER) SOMEBODY ASKED ME THAT BEFORE THE SHOW STARTED.

(LAUGHTER) WE WERE TALKING BEFORE THE SHOW STARTED AND EVERYBODY'S GOT A QUESTION AND "WHO WOULD WIN IN A

FIGHT, FROG OR SHARK?" THAT KIND OF THING.

SOMEONE JUST SAID TO ME "WHAT RACE WOULD YOU BE IF YOU COULD BE -- I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY A JEW IS

FINE BUT, I MEAN -- IF YOU HAD A CHANCE, I MEAN, WOULDN'T YOU GO ASIAN JUST FOR A DAY?"

(LAUGHTER) (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) IT'S FINE.

THEY'RE NICE PEOPLE!
