A press release confirms that Jon Stewart — lover of pizzapasta, and hand-washing —  and his wife Tracey McShane have purchased a farm in New Jersey that they hope to turn into a farm animal sanctuary.

Does this mean Jon Stewart is becoming a vegetarian?

Farm Sanctuary, a farm animal rescue and advocacy group, today named two sheep for Jon and his wife in honor of their new farm purchase. It's just one more thing Stewart, who has a thing against Nazi beef, can cross off his bucket list. Here they are, little Tracey and fuzzy Jon.
