The offending witticism, from his April 29 segment about homosexuality and the civil rights movement, We Shall Undermine:
OK maybe not precisely the same joke, but certainly close enough to arouse suspicion.
Though to be fair, he didn’t call the segment “Ski Shall Undermine” — as I surely would have — because, frankly, that wouldn’t make any sense. Unlike my jokes. Which always make perfect sense. When I make them. Trust me, this makes perfect sense.
Post title intended as an homage to Colbert’s former co-worker Steve Carell and the dearly departed Michael Scott:
Doctor: “Does the skin look red & swollen?”
Dwight: “That’s what she said”
Michael: “Thats my joke, dammit Dwight!”
