After being tackled to the ground by fellow nominees Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon, Jon Stewart took to the Emmy stage last night, backed by his Daily Show cohorts, to accept the show’s tenth consecutive award in the Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series category.

A big, sincere congratulations goes out to the entire Daily Show staff on an amazing job well-done and for being in the truly rare and enviable position of now being able to play Emmy bowling.

In the meantime, here are some more Word Mash Ups from the show:

You might be wondering why Bender is carrying a horse in that still from “31st Century Fox,” the first of next week’s back-to-back season finale episodes. But anyone who watched this year’s Olympics knows he’s practicing the popular equestrian sport of dressage.

Meanwhile, the other image features The Huntsman from the same episode, a character who will be voiced by none other than Captain Picard himself, Patrick Stewart!

Futurama’s one-hour season finale airs Wednesday at 10/9c.
