Why was Jon Stewart so harsh on Arby’s? We may have to wait for his memoirs, but as The Washington Post noted — “The Daily Show” hits didn’t hurt its bottom line. Besides producing a farewell video to the TV icon, Arby’s has unveiled yet another “secret” menu item.
Ask for The Daily Deli.
Christopher Fuller, Arby’s chief spokesman, told the Post that the chain moved this week to add a “secret” menu item in his honor — i.e., one that won’t be listed on its menu, “but that Arby’s will make if in-the-know customers ask for it.”
The sandwich is a double corned beef on rye — Stewart’s favorite.
Jon, feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com.

Sometimes Jon’s jokes about us were hard to digest, but we kept watching #TheDailyShow anyway. #JonVoyage pic.twitter.com/FGoLhf6QyX

Thinking I’m going to have to have dinner at @Arbys in honor of @TheDailyShow Jon Stewart’s final day.
