"Nation, laissez les bon temps rouler!"
Had a laugh attack again tonight, this time courtesy of The Colbert Report. I had tears from laughing at Colbert's opening bit. He did a quasi-hulu dance proclaiming, "laissez les bon temps rouler!" for Mardi Gras, and threw a bead to the audience asking them to show a nipple. Lol. From there, things just got funnier. On Tuesday morning, media reports said the stock market flashbacked to 1997, so Colbert did a whole 1997 bit. Dancing to Hansen's "Mmmmbop" (quasi-hulu dance again), dialing up a modem to connect to AOL on a green iMac. I think the part that killed was listening to the modem dial and then having his "mom" pick in the middle saying, "Hello? Hello?" Ridiculous. Later on the show, he did his "Nailed 'Em," feature, which featured buffet crime. It's too funny to summarize; you have to watch for yourself.
