Colbert took on two major news events, The World Cup and the oil spill, in one glorious segment last night.
With the U.S. facing England in the first round, Colbert was pumped at the chance to "get back at those limey bastards for the oil spill." The game plan: dumping 10 million gallons of oil on their side of the field. Seems easy enough. He then added:
"Then, we stop play while shrimp fishermen in hazmat suits scrub down the British team with toothbrushes, which will have the added benefit of introducing the British to the concept of toothbrushes. "
The bit begins after the (also very funny) segment on Michael Jordan's Hitler stache.
