Paying no mind to the "Sausage principle" — the idea that you should never find out how something you love is made, — John Oliver pulled back the curtain on FIFA's "comically grotesque" operating principles ahead of the 2014 World Cup.
On Sunday's episode of "Last Week Tonight," Oliver explained why soccer isn't only "a religion" in just about every country other than America, but an organized religion with a corrupt, manipulative, "non-profit" organization at its head.
Watch Oliver break down FIFA's outrageous wastes of money in this year's host country Brazil, such as a $270 million stadium that will host four games before becoming, "The world's most expensive bird toilet." Oh, and it doesn't help that they're tax-exempt, too.
But it gets worse. From changing laws put in place to prevent fan deaths, to "cartoonishly evil" boardrooms and numerous corruption and bribery scandals, FIFA has done just about everything to make the World Cup a conflicting event for fans like John Oliver. But hey, that doesn't mean he isn't going to love every second of it.
Watch the full segment above.
