Stephen Colbert, my favorite faux blowhard, is certainly getting a lot of mileage out of picking celebrity feuds (our Rachel Sklar has been all over this story). Along with his hyper-hyped aqua-tiff with "rebel billionaire" Richard Branson, there have been public throw downs with Brian Williams and Katie Couric over their willingness to show their support for wristiness by wearing one of the WristStrong ™ bracelets Colbert has been flogging since breaking his left wrist in June.
Now I'm all for the promotion of wristal health but, really Stephen, don't you think you are milking your injury just a tad? I mean, how big a deal is a broken wrist -- especially a left wrist? I broke my ankle - a weight bearing bone, mind you -- in July but you don't see me bitching and moaning every day about "ankliness," and trying to get every celebrity I meet to put on a little rubber anklet, do you? Hey, wait a minute, that gives me an idea: AnkleStrong ™. I like it!
So what do you say, Colbert? Are you man enough to admit the negligible nature of your affliction and stand up for ankleal health (no easy task when you have a broken ankle)? Let me know. And, by the way, can you get me the number of the company that makes your bracelets? See you in physical therapy, chump.
