7/30/07--The Toss

Jon Stewart: Before we go, we check in with our good friend Stephen Colbert at the Colbert Report. What do you have for us tonight, Stephen?

Stephen Colbert:

Thanks, Jon. Tonight: the latest on Iraq.
Is it in disarray? Is peace derailed?
Can we now say that Bush's war has failed?
A failure too calamitous to mock?
Or will the future bring a pleasant shock?
Will it be said democracy prevailed
And will the recent surge in troops be hailed
As more than merely running out the clock?
We'll cover that; then on the lighter side
I'll interview one plucky girl
Who's opened up a brand-new candy store.
Then weather, sports, your weekend movie guide
And finally: a water-skiing squirrel.
All that tonight on the Colbert Report.

JS: Stephen, was that--was that a sonnet?

SC: Yeah. Petrarchan. I said Elizabethan, jackass!

(no subject)

"As you know, the hot dog was invented in America when a family of raccoons wandered into a toothpaste factory."

A bunch of other great quotes from tonight, but that was the only one I could remember.

This is all part of my plan to take over the Internets, a series of tubes.

Hello, Nation! This is raindroproses, one of your lovely new co-mods. I just wanted to introduce myself. For those who haven't yet noticed by my frequent postings, I am a huge fan of both TDS and TCR.

I'm a pretty easygoing mod, especially for communities like these, which aren't all that busy. As long as you're not blatantly breaking rules left and right, I'm likely to let small things slide. (I don't know about newgeneration, though, so I suggest following the rules anyway. Which shouldn't be hard, as they're not too stringent in the first place.)

I'll be futzing around with the layouts of tds_quotes and cr_quotes over the next week (if that's okay with you, newgeneration!), so if there's anything you'd like to see, let me know.

Also, I've added some tags, and I'll be going back and tagging posts. In the future, please tag your posts. If a tag doesn't exist, let newgeneration or myself know, and we'll add it for you.
