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?
