Jon Stewart is possibly the funniest human alive. He's also democrat, in case you didn't know that.

They could each enjoy a long career as Major League Baseball relievers, but the following left-handed stars have chosen a different field in which to utilize their eccentricity.

Some are singers. Some are actors and actresses. One is the President of the United States!

But they all have one thing in common: they write with their non-right hand. So weird, right?!?

So, in honor of Left Handers Day (really, it's a thing; look it up), THG is excited to presented snapshots of 21 famous southpaws.

They may hate the set-up of spiral notebooks, but we love what they add to our lives. Long may they be left(y) behind!

Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga might be pointing to her engagement ring from Taylor Kinney here, but she could just as well be showing off the fact that she's left-handed.

P.S. Did you also know that yesterday was World Elephant Day?

Remember back in 2008 when every lunatic with an anti-Obama agenda claimed the President-to-be was a closet Muslim?

Well, it seems the torch has been passed, and now it's up to Obama's allies to question his religious convictions.

Appearing on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart recently, comedian and liberal pundit Bill Maher made the strange declaration that Obama is "a drop-dead atheist."

While if the same words came out of Bill O'Reilly's mouth, they'd be taken as an attack against the President's moral character,coming  from Maher the bizarre claim is the verbal equivalent of putting his arm around Obama's shoulder and posing for a selfie.

Jon Stewart isn't even a real news broadcaster, but the Comedy Central figure is more trusted to deliver news than MSNBC, a new study found.

According to a new survey by the Brookings Institution and the Public Religion Research Institute, the public trusts him more than a 24/7 news channel.

The organizations did a study about immigration and the media that contained within it a broader question about which news outlet the public trusts most.

Fox News came in first, as per usual; the network has been consistently named both the most and the least trusted name in news. Let's hear it for polarization!

Unfortunately for MSNBC, it was dead last, with just 5 percent of Americans saying they trusted it most ... 8 percent, by comparison, chose The Daily Show.

Another study showed that Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert did a better job at informing people about campaign finance issues than traditional outlets.

What do Barack Obama, Nicole Kidman, and Justin Bieber have in common? They've all made a sex tape?

They're all left-handed, making them quite elite for more than just politics, movies, and music.

Between 7 and 10 percent of people worldwide are left-handed. Why does that matter?

Well, because quite a few of Hollywood's elite also happen to be southpaws, and an uncanny number of politicians around the globe are too, for that matter.

Take a look at this list of 21 left-handed celebrities to see the one thing that unites them all:

Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga might be pointing to her engagement ring from Taylor Kinney here, but she could just as well be showing off the fact that she's left-handed.

Being left-handed is commonly associated with intelligence and creativity, not to mention those terrible ink smears along the side of their dominant hand.

Seriously, what's a leftie have to do to get the right kind of desk around here??

Despite their minority status, left-handed people are more likely to excel in music, math, and sports; based on scientific studies and anecdotal evidence, that seems to hold true. 

Just don't expect Bieber to be a poster child for International Left Handers Day.

As he announced on last night's Late Show, David Letterman is retiring in 2015 which gives CBS execs just a few months to secure a replacement for the beloved host. No mean feat, given the high stakes in the late night ratings battle and giant shoes Dave's successor will need to fill.

Jon Stewart hosts The Daily Show on Comedy Central. Some believe the comedian is a contender to replace David Letterman on CBS' The Late Show.

So who should the network choose to fill such an important role? Well, the race is wide open with several late night hosts up for contact renewal within the next year. Check out the gallery above for some of the frontrunners.

Big names like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert may find themselves competing with lesser-known basic cable stalwarts like Bravo's Andy Cohen.

Dark horse candidates like Chelsea Handler could bring an all new audience to the CBS late night lineup, but the network execs (typically not adventurous types) may choose to play it safe by promoting Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson.

This, naturally, set The Donald off.

Following a holiday hiatus, Jon Stewart and The Daily Show returned to the air this week - just in time to take on the pressing topic of gun control.

The host kicked off last night's episode by introducing a segment known as "Scapegoat Hunter," in which he took the NRA to task for blaming incidents such as the Newtown shooting on everything EXCEPT guns.

He then brandished a plastic weapon and bellowed:

“We can blame movies, or video games, or the mentally ill, or God. And it’s a complex problem, and all solutions have to be on the table. But it is time we talk about guns."

Jon Stewart, Plastic Gun

At a fundraiser for the Montclair Film Festival on Friday night, Jon Stewart sat down with Stephen Colbert and spoke on a number of issues:

How close he came to quitting The Daily Show after landing the gig; how he can't watch the opening to his 9/11 episode; and how much he absolutely hates Hugh Grant.
