Stewart's high school photo, as it appears on classmates.com.

The secret’s out. “The Daily Show ” host Jon Stewart’s nickname is ... “Soupy.”

The Huffington Post broke the news to the world on Monday afternoon, following blogger Jessica Roy‘s tweet of the Stewart’s 1980 high school photo - in which Stewart sports a super-eighties hairdo.

“Jon Stewart went to the same high school as my mom. This is his senior portrait. Sweet feathered haircut!” Roy tweeted.

The photo was found on the classmates.com page for the 1980 Lawrence High School class. Stewart’s real name, Jonathan Leibowitz, appears underneath the black-and-white photo.

What’s the meaning behind “Soupy?” Who knows. According to the Stewart page on superiorpics.com, which features profiles of celebrities, Stewart’s got several nicknames, including “Lefty,” “Poochy” and, perhaps the best one, “Susceptible Boy.”
