Breaking News: Hugo Chavez is dead and Jon Stewart of The Daily Show will be taking the summer off to rule Venezuela. Obama has never visited Israel. Now he wants to visit in the spring. It is a trick my Hebros. The president is no friend to Israel. He appointed Chuck Hagel a man who has said that He is not an Israeli senator and does not work for Israel interests.
Ambassador of Israel, Michael Oren, joins Colbert to discuss the president’s trip. Saying that Obama has to visit the wailing wall, eat some brisket, and forgive the Israeli prime minister for backing Mitt Romney. Colbert asks when will we start bombing Iran.
A brave entrepreneur, Dennis Tito, wants to send people to Mars for the best reason of all: impatience. He wants a married couple to voyage in a bathroom sized vessel for 501 days. There will be no showers and they will use a poop shield made from their own feces to block solar radiation. However, the best thing of all is that there will be tons of recycled pee for their drinking pleasure.
Couples should train by spending a year in a Geo Prism while spreading their poop on the windows and drinking each other’s pee. If the cops ask you what you are doing, say that you are training to be astronauts.
Then Colbert talks to James Franco about the film Oz: The Great and Powerful. Franco has been a regular guest on the short for a few years now. Franco and Colbert both have a strong love for Tolkien. They also talked about the Oz film as a prequel to the Wizard of Oz.
This was a decent episode however the best part was the Mars story and James Franco. The Colbert Report airs on Comedy Central.
