Apologies for everyone reading feeds with this and expecting technical talk. This is just a silly idea I had this morning, as a subject line to parody… Stephen Colbert. Hence, the rest of this article you’ll have to read by clicking on the “Full Article” link.
“Despite his bluster, Colbert’s character also demonstrates a notable phobia of bears, which he refers to as “godless killing machines without a soul”.
O’Reilly? (Err, Oh’Really?)
Here’s what I want to do. I want to make fun of Stephen Colbert (the character) and his aversion to bears by punning on his name’s pronunciation. I want to do so in so outrageous a fashion that he ends up inviting one or two people involved with the joke onto his show to publicly lambast them over it (in-character). I don’t necessarily have to be one of those people.
- Only the character of Stephen Colbert is attackable. No personal attacks on Stephen Colbert the actor.
- Be family-friendly, please. Save the raunch dressing for when you’re actually paid to do stand-up comedy. Besides, bears are a rare-enough subject where we don’t need bathroom jokes. (I know, I’m proposing we go after a Comedy Central show, and they’re not always family-friendly. Deal with it.)
- Please use the TrackBack feature (and preferably comment to this blog entry) about whatever jokes you come up with. I’d like to know about them, but I don’t want to be held responsible for the content.
- Disclaimer: I personally work for ManyOne Networks, Inc., which may be a competitor to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not the subject of this joke, so please don’t abuse them or what they provide to the community. (In other words, I am deliberately not suggesting making a billion edits to someone’s Cold Bear Report page on Wikipedia.)
- I reserve the right to amend these rules as I see fit with no notice. Sorry, but I want this to be a good-natured tease about The Colbert Report. You are of course at liberty to disregard these rules and do whatever you want; just don’t blame me for whatever happens.
