Happy Birthday, Stephen Colbert!

Today is holiday time at Colbert News Hub because we are celebrating Stephen’s birthday today! Yay! And it’s a big one, too, because he is marking a half century on this earth. But Stephen has nothing to fear, for he looks fantastic and has enough energy to power many small villages.

Stephen Colbert Birthday

So on behalf of our webmaster Katt, our Hub staff, and Hubster community, have a wonderful birthday, Mr. Colbert. We hope you get to enjoy it to the fullest. Thanks for all you do to keep us smiling every day.

Feel free to add your birthday congratulations in the comments.

    From a post that I sent someone a while back on tumblr:

    Sorry it’s so late. Happy Birthday, “Stephen”!

    It’s for “Stephen” of the Colbert Report. I realize that this is for “Stephen” instead of Stephen. But I’ll work on something similar for Stephen too. Before anyone says anything, Yankee Doodle is considered public domain, so it’s fair use under America’s copyright Laws. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.

    (To the tune of Yankee Doodle, Kid’s version)

    Verse 1:
    Stephen Colbert came to town
    Riding in a hummer
    He claimed today was the greatest day,
    His fiftieth birthday!

    Stephen Colbert keep it up,
    Give it up for Stephen!
    Fifty years he’s been around,
    And we will never leave him.

    Verse 2:
    From speaking in two thousand six,
    The Correspondent Dinner,
    To running for the Presidency,
    I wish you were the winner.

    Stephen Colbert keep it up,
    Give it up for Stephen!
    Fifty years he’s been around,
    And we will never leave him.

    Verse 3:
    Stephen Colbert, you’ve done so much;
    You are America’s treasure.
    But once the Report is all gone,
    We’ll lose a national treasure.

    Stephen Colbert keep it up,
    Give it up for Stephen!
    Fifty years he’s been around,
    And we will never leave him.


  • I’m almost a month late, but I did my requisite birthday wishes to Stephen both on Facebook and Twitter on the actual day, and I think a birthday is worth celebrating any time, so Happy 50th Birthday, Stephen! May you continue to shine your satire beacon on those that need/deserve it most (good and bad), and thank you for being a light to many in the Colbert Nation. Excelsior!
