Oh, such a fine bicycle shorts black suit with a marvelous silver and black striped tie set off against a crisp white, barrel cuffed, dress shirt.
No surprise Stephen unleashed a peloton metaphors; for him, writing metaphors is as easy as falling off a bicycle. Setting off a break away into laughter and made a criterium of that whole segment. Rouleur! Sir! Do we have a Commaissaire in the house to make a call on that one! Lance’s Pants! Lance’s Pants – fun to say!!!
Spoiler Alert, Spoiler Alert! Lance Armstrong is banging Oprah! The Story of O Returns! And Oprah is most satisfied after hours and hours and she didn’t ease off Mr. Armstrong – stamina, man, stamina!
Monkey on the Lam! If you swoon to Stephen Colbert’s marvelous narrative baritone, then carry on! As the reporter says, “I have seen the monkey, I have followed the monkey, I have written about the monkey … “ but the question is, has she spanked the monkey?
Now, The Colbert Report is known for sharing the obscure and outlandish, the Catacombo is just plain weird. Music to die for! Can you think of something more hellish than an eternity of listening to Nickel Back. Though listening to Mr. C crooning, well, swoon!
Catacondoms, inspired! “After all, you’re dead, not married!” Well done, Sir, it just too you 3 minutes to set up that one! And thanks for the smirk!
Okay, on to the interview with Jared Diamond who has pterodactyl on his tie? “Primitive societies” in say, Montana! The upside is that the elderly are treasured in their end days; the down side, end days come at 32. Their life expectancy of 32? Then Stephen admits he would have been dead months ago. And how often do you get to hear in an interview, “The widow strangling is not involuntary.”
Find out what he means by “I could be Vann Camp, King of Beans!” But they ask, “What good is an electric can opening if you don’t have cans?” – heck, what good is an electric can opener if you don’t have electricity! Steve Jobs business model, “sell them the electric can opener and lease them the cans.”
Who would have thought, Dr. Jared Diamond doubles as the mascot for the Fighting Irish!
