The Daily Show‘s John Oliver took a look at Tim Geithner’s hard-to-sell Larchmont, N.Y., house last night. The segment wasn’t all that funny, but the part where Oliver gets Robert Shiller to comment on whether Geithner’s  turquoise (aqua? teal?) bathroom tiles are driving away buyers is surreal enough to be worth a look.

I kind of liked the tiles myself, but what do I know?
