Last Week Tonight: John Oliver Dissects Our Pumpkin Spice Addiction

If you have not watched Last Week Tonight with comedian John Oliver on HBO, I can tell you that you're missing something magical. To say the man is brilliant is to still sell him short. A wonderful summary of just how bright and observant he is with his humor, take this bit he did on his show this week about America's obsession with pumpkin spiced anything between October and the end of November.

Just the simple fact that he reminds us all there is no actual pumpkin in pumpkin spice flavoring and it just sits behind the shelf at Starbucks for nine months of the year is genius enough, and it only gets better from there.

The "five pounds of pumpkin a year" fact is pretty mind-blowing, too. I may just skip the pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving, come to think of it.
