Before the start of the show, Stephen comes out to the audience for a brief Q&A… offered the chance to ask Mr. Colbert anything at all, I decided to ask if he had seen the banned PETA ad (see below) – and then question his opinion on the sexiest vegetable known to man.
Stephen, in fact, had seen the commercial, and offered his answer, “Is the vagina a vegetable?”
You won’t find this in the episode – but check it out tonight at 11:30 on Comedy Central. I, alas, do not have cable, so savor the moment for me. (PS – great pre-taped interview with Paul McCartney!)
