Wow, no Stephen Colbert posts in quite a while. Here’s an EW interview with the man behind truthiness and the scoop on his new book “I am America (And So Can You!)”:

Yeah, I get the sense that if Jon asked to have an eagle named after him or something, people would be like, ”Uh-huh,” and take another hit off the bong. But people actually do name things after you. Very flattering. You have a bridge, right?
I won the bridge-naming contest in Hungary, but apparently you have to speak Hungarian and you have to be dead. So it ended up becoming the Magyar Bridge. But I’m now an honorary citizen of Hungary.
