Before his occasional segment where he recalls 'the daily news that almost-no one is covering,' he introduces it with a new metaphor describing the contrast between his monologue-writing process (with the big international- and national news) and the writing-process of this segment. (I tried to find a collection of 'meanwhile intros,' but the closest thing I found was this collection of 'meanwhiles' (and 'quarantine-whiles')) https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUok5GRwyZ3QEKBJJOPeXDG4zXwcNKbtU How long do you think it'll be before Stephen has to reuse a joke-crafting metaphor?

Probably not long?

You should hear ... sometimes his intro seems to stretch longer than the rest of the segment!
