We're not sure why HLN decided to have Jon Hendren come on to discuss Edward Snowden, but we sure are glad they did.

I mean, the Twitter comedian's handle is @fart.

All the same, when Hendren went on Sept. 30 to talk about Snowden's new Twitter account, HLN anchor Yasmin Vossoughian took it very serious. And that's just how it began as she talked about how Snowden's release of classified documents could have endangered national security.

"Well, you know to say he couldn't harm someone...well, absolutely he could," Hendren said. "But I think to cast him out, to make him invalid in society, simply because he has scissors for hands...I mean that's strange. People didn't get scared until he started sculpting shrubs into dinosaur shapes and whatnot."

It went on from there and it was wonderful.

You had me at: "Just because he was created on top of a mountain by Vincent Price, incomplete with scissors for hand and no heart. Edward Scissorhands is a complete hero to me."

God bless you, Jon Hendren.
