Late night love

“If eyes are the window to your soul, then how come it hurts when I spray them with Windex?”

- Stephen Colbert

Geez, I just love Stephen Colbert. In the opening montage of his show when he does the little turn, points his finger at the camera and looks ME right in the eye, I get all tingly inside.

Oh, Stephen, with razor wit
For hours I could sit
And watch you mock the world.
You slice
You dice
Everyone else is second rate
To the smarts you impart with style.
With a twinkle in your eye
Smiling, rakish yet sly
Nothing is untouchable.
With raised brow
And pencil jab
An innocence exudes.
Build them up
Then rip them down
No mercy for the dude….
or dudess.
At 10 PM C.S.T.
The hour that you come to me
I feel my heart expand with fondness sure.
Oh my heart, be still I beg
I cannot help but wonder what his legs
Look like in shorts.

Last night Stephen Colbert challenged Richard Branson to a duel. Stay tuned.

The truthiness will set you free!

I'm currently singing that K.I.S.S.I.N.G. song with yours and Stephen's names in it. :)

I just watched an old Janeanne Garafalo stand up special, like from 1997 and Stephen Colbert and his buddy Paul Dinello were the opening act. It was really weird to see him so early, like pre Strangers with Candy and pre Daily Show. It's less than 2 minutes at the very end of the show, but very funny and if you're a fan it might be worth it.

Lady...thanks for the tip. I'll check it out.

Fun post and witty verse. :)

HUGE fan of Colbert myself!

Ribbon and REread...for me it's about intelligence and humor. I'm easy prey for smart and funny.

But with that said, I think if you mussed his hair a bit, gave him some trendy designer frames and put him a pair of tight jeans, you might see there is an inner stud muffin waiting to break free.

I loooove Colbert. He always makes me laugh out loud, no matter how I'm feeling.

Rudee said...

I adore that man and stay up late to watch the repeat. Duh. I have DVR.

I'm a sap for funny and smart too.
