Colbert Report Discusses Robot Language Teacher, Tea Party Racism, 4/20, and Dreamworks 3D

Stephen Colbert, host of the Colbert Report

In this episode of the Colbert Report, Stephen discusses an electronic vocal organ that is posing as a teacher, converses with PK Winsom about tea party racism, expresses his distaste for the 4/20 pot-head celebration, and interviews the CEO of Dreamworks Animation, Jeffrey Katzenberg.

The episode opens with Stephen Colbert discussing a controversial clip of him using a Chinese accent that was somehow perceived as racist. After re-showing it – for those that missed it – he moves to his own defense, by rolling a story about a innovative and highly-complex electronic vocal organ that was recently invented by Japanese scientists. Stephen claims that he learned with the robot teacher, since the new creation was designed  to help the hearing impaired with their vocal training.

Later on in show, Tea party racism is allegedly accredited to the fact that the rallies are – in general – mostly white with an insignificant number African American participants. To remedy this issue, PK Winsom shows up, offering his services to any protest that needs a few black people to reduce the any racial tensions. Then, as a tangent on the subject of race, Stephen stakes a claim against the pot-headed holiday, four twenty.

To close the episode, Jeffrey Cassenberg, the CEO of Dreamworks animation, announces that every future Dreamworks movie will be shown in 3-d, citing that life is in 3 dimensions, so why not our movies?

Colbert Report Explores Ricky Martin, Catholic Sex Scandals, and the Opinions of Simon Johnson

Stephen is Fighting for America

In Tuesday’s Colbert Report, Stephen expresses his surprise when Ricky Martin comes out of the closet, admitting that the news has rendered him upside-inside-out. He is saddened by the fact that The Holy Week has been tainted by more priest abuse cases, which are slowly popping up across Europe. Stephen urges everyone to forgive and forget, since sex abuse has only been committed by 4% of priests.

Another edition of “Thought for Food” discusses Nature Babycare Diapers – which are manufactured from corn-based materials – and a study asserting that fatty foods are as addictive as heroin and crack cocaine. Stephen laughs at Jaimie Oliver, when his show fails to convince kids that chicken-carcus-slurries don’t make a good chicken nugget.

Stephen interviews Simon Johnson about his book 13Bankers, in which he discusses the five year pattern of wallstreet-sanctioned financial meltdowns. He explains why failure is important to the market, and how Obama’s administration failed to break up with big banks. He calls the president a capitalist, and admits that he doesn’t have faith in the country’s judicial system. Johnson also convinces Stephen about the danger of the enormous banks, and how they metaphorically flip over the game board when they start to lose at their global game of economic monopoly.
