Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • obfuscator

    Shit that’s funny.

  • Tybalt

    They actually failed to make Jon Stewart look smug enough. I didn’t think that was possible much less where he’s supposed to be trying to look smug.

  • CivicHoliday

    Steward looks like he escaped from a mental hospital in that picture. And Colbert? Well, lets just say, girl, oh noes you dinnit!

  • grendel

    If they really loved America there would be an American flag in that fireplace. Commie elitists.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    I wonder if they fought over who got to wear that amazing ‘fro wig.

    A sign that Colbert is now Top Dog?

  • Vanity Smurf

    Who knew Colbert could rock a ‘fro like that?

  • Hamster

    Damn I miss cable. Stupid-ass economy, fuck you.

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …FAKE: Colbert is missing the black fist hair pick!

  • ihasasad

    OH – MY – GODS. Colbert is GORGEOUS!

  • Serolf Divad

    It’s OK, the bitters knew Stewart and Colbert were gay homosexual America haters, even as they tune in each eve at 11:00 to laugh at a bunch of jokes they mostly don’t get.

  • Terry

    Colbert should consider keeping that hairdo. The man rocks a big ‘fro.

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …and ironically, John Stewart(Jewish) is playing a Muslim.

  • StripesAndPlaids

    Satirist Fist Jab?

  • sanantonerose

    Colbert is the only one who can pull off the ‘fro. So damn sexy.

  • The Gordo

    I heart Colbert and Stewart.

  • magic titty

    Stephen Colbert’s sassy face is sort of epic.

  • columnv

    [re=108177]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: and he’s wearing muslin!

  • Harvey Birdman

    Ugh, this is reminding me I have to think about a Halloween costume.

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    That ‘fro is beyond awesome. Oh, Steven. Be mine.

  • ihasasad

    [re=108177]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: But he’s married to a Catholic so doesn’t that work somehow?

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …no self respecting black guy slings a AK-47 over his back. We always tuck them into our pant and fire them side ways!

    And yes I do know you cant tuck an AK into your pants, its called “grasping for straws”.

  • PoliTacky

    [re=108170]Hamster[/re]: You can watch DS and CR on hulu…

  • Hairy Reed

    [re=108170]Hamster[/re]: hulu.com, my friend

  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=108170]Hamster[/re]: Fuck TV. The INTERWEBZ holds da KEYS 2 FREEEDOM.

  • Hairy Reed

    [re=108196]PoliTacky[/re]: Oh, you beat me.

  • Monkey

    [re=108195]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: It’s a black woman.

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …they should have added a black “booty” dancer to play Michelle and a woman in a burka behind Stewart.

  • facehead




    Live long and prosper.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    [re=108168]Vanity Smurf[/re]: I’ve always suspected that Colbert was insanely gay. Not that I wouldn’t fuck him ten ways from Sunday, but… totes queer.

  • Tawmn

    This made my entire week!

  • Miller

    I can’t even tell who this is supposed to be racist towards. Muslims, Jews, Blacks, Whites, TV hosts, fireplace enthusiasts? Give me a conduit to channel my hate at EW! I need to feel outrage again.


  • Monkey

    Entertainment Weekly just lost their backwoods trailer-trash 12 percent racist paranoid readers.


    STEWART: That’s why I don’t excuse what I guess you’d call the satiro-industrial complex from culpability.

    Take that Ken, Sarah and Jim! Jon holds you culpable! You, shortsshortsshorts and AngryBlackGuy.

    The rest of us are just innocent bystanders.

  • Vanity Smurf

    [re=108218]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: Oh, I’ll take him. I bet he’s a screamer too.

  • Biden Time

    [re=108161]grendel[/re]: Srsly. Cop out!

  • PoliTacky

    [re=108201]Hairy Reed[/re]: jinx!

    I just found out about hulu about a month ago and mainly use it for TV shows I miss by not having cable: Where I live, I can’t get a dish ‘cuz my building doesn’t allow them, and I only have 1 choice for cable: Time/Warner, who gets sued repeatedly for their shitty service and has only 3 craptastic “packages” to “choose” from, so, uh, screw that.

  • Wonk’s Adventure

    Stewart: “The press is 6-year-olds playing soccer; nobody has a position, it’s just “Where’s the ball? Where’s the ball? Sarah Palin has the ball!” [Mimes a mob running after her.] Because they can only cover one thing.”

    anyone else now have a mental image of wolf blitzer’s face on a six-year-old’s body, complete with a beard and microphone?

  • Totowa

    Who needs them when we got Wonkette. Much funnier. Hope they don’t steal their jokes from this blog!

  • magic titty

    [re=108283]Totowa[/re]: I actually think some of them come from here. I’m not kidding.

  • PoliTacky

    [re=108283]Totowa[/re]: [re=108313]magic titty[/re]: We should all get a little PayPal ‘donate’ button next to our names so we can get paid for all the jokes people steal from here. Kimmel is the worst, I’ve seen him rip off Wonkette jokes down to the punctuation marks.

  • lilblackcorvette

    ok. this is going to offend some people. After watching those old white guys standing around at that podium, they just showed Barry and his crew going in his Senate office. they just look like “We got this shit on lock!” Like sho’ nuff regulators!

  • AngryBlakGuy

    [re=108222]WIDTAP[/re]: …hey, hey, hey I haven’t taken my meds in months! Leave me out of this!

  • Dailyfare

    Now that’s funny! That’s satire! The original cover – not so much.

  • Dailyfare

    Colbert actually looks coquettish. Who’da thunk?

  • BobLoblawLawBlog

    [re=108174]ihasasad[/re]: I was just thinking the same thing. And also, once again, wondering if Jon Stewart ever makes any other faces ever. Yeesh, and I used to be so in love with him when he was rocking the acid wash on “You Wrote It You Watch It.”
    Colbert, though…say it softly and it’s almost like praying.

  • Oh hell to the no

    [re=108157]Tybalt[/re]: Oh, I dunno. They both seem real uppity in that picture.

  • rocktonsammy

    those two always seem to be trying to hard to be something.

    Can’t wait for Reno 911 to return, now theres funny.

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    Can you imagine the sex between the two of them after the photo shoot?

  • S. Cullen Bonz

    [re=108716]Lionel Hutz Esq.[/re]: They would have to be skinny people because there is not a lot of space between Colbert and Stewart for people to have sex in.

  • pixiestyx

    Oh, shut the f*&k up! We love them lots and y’all know it. If anyone wants to piss on ’em, well you’re just jealous. After all, who among you Wonkette posters doesn’t possess a little bit o’ smugness? Or a lot (and that’s okay, really!!)?
