Tim Tebow currently is peddling his autobiography, and his tour included a stop tonight on perhaps the funniest show on television, The Daily Show. Jon Stewart fired a few good-natured zingers at Tebow, who didn’t flinch -- and who mustered at least one humorous response.

For example, Stewart asked Tebow how old he is.

“Twenty-three,” Tebow said.

“A lot of people might say you want to wait until you’re 24 to write an autobiography,” Stewart said.

Tebow then talked about his parents’ background as missionaries, and his support of an orphanage in the Phillipines.

“Wow. You seem like a real asshole,” Stewart said.

Replied Tebow without hesitation, “I mean, but that’s how I try to come across.”

When Stewart raised the topic of the struggles of “Ohio State University,” Tebow was quick to correct him. “The Ohio State University,” Tebow said.

It was a pretty good segment; if you missed the show, check Tebow also is scheduled to be on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday morning.
