Ice Cream Moves Colbert Closer to World Domination


You might have heard by now that "The Colbert Report" star Stephen Colbert will be getting his own ice cream, courtesy of Ben & Jerry's. Now, I'm as excited as the next girl to dip into Americone Dream (vanilla ice cream, fudge-covered waffle cone pieces, caramel, and a dash of truthiness — "the sweet taste of liberty in your mouth," says the press release). But when my girl Yum and I were chatting about this, we wondered if Colbert maybe wasn't getting a little greedy. After all, he already has a hockey team, a bald eagle, and — oh, right! — a TV show.

On the other hand, is Colbert's potential for world domination really a bad thing? If he really wants to make his mark, maybe he could try to get his name on one of these:

  • An endowed chair at a major university (The Stephen Colbert Professor of Patriotism Studies, perhaps?)
  • A federal building
  • A planet
  • An element
  • A disease
  • A wild bear refuge

What else would you like to see named after everyone's favorite faux-pundit?
