Stephen Colbert and the Angry Inch

How tall is Stephen Colbert

On Wednesday night’s episode of “The Colbert Report”, Stephen Colbert devoted a segment of “Who’s Attacking Me Now?” to the search engine giant Google, who have robbed him of a precious inch of height.

“You see folks, when I Googled myself this afternoon, as I do every day at 3 sharp … I was horrified to learn that the Google celebrity profile of me lists my height as 5’10″. 5’10″? What is that measured in? Hectares? Because it sure isn’t feet and inches, Google. I’m 5’11″!”

Colbert went on to personally address the chief executive of Google, Larry Page, because in image-conscious Hollywood an extra inch means everything. “All I want is the height I deserve. And I fought for every inch, and no one, but no one, is taking that away from me. Especially not Larry Page, who according to Google, is 5’11”. [The New York Times]

Well it seems that the good humoured powers that be at Google were watching the show on Wednesday night. If you search, “How tall is Stephen Colbert” on Google, you will receive the following answer “5′ 10.5″ (1.79m -ish)”. And as seen in the image above, Google couldn’t help getting a jab in at tiny fake newsman Jon Stewart, who is listed as “Shorter”.

But it doesn’t end there folks …

Stephen Colbert Serves as Apple’s ‘Chief of Secrecy’

It’s no secret that Stephen Colbert is a huge Apple fanboy, but his taking a call from Apple’s head software designer during a product presentation took the audience by surprise:

Forget hosting The Late Show, Stephen Colbert just lined up the gig of a lifetime: Intergalactic Chancellor of Apple.

Well, his exact title is still a work in progress, if Thursday’s iPad event is any evidence. In a very dad-like phone call, Apple’s senior VP of software design Craig Federighi explained to Colbert how the comedian would help the tech company “triple-down” on secrecy — something much needed after Wednesday’s iPad leak.
