Culture :  Humor 

by Kevin James Salveson

If there's one guy we admire, a gent who's jibcut we like, a spirited rhetorical jouster with a wit so fast it makes lightning jealous, it is the Carolina's own Stephen Colbert. So, why not engage his legendary whip smart rejoinder machine on the Twit? Our thinking went. And that's about as far as it ever went.


Essentially, we sent him tweeted inquiry after inquiry, sometimes making fun of his utter rejection, sometimes falling into a pit of unrelenting dispair that took whole afternoons of bong hits to fully recover from I can tell you. One day (perhaps today is the day!) he is going to get around to responding, we're sure of it.  


Especially after his stonewalling has made our only responsible journalistic recourse an attempt at humiliating him in public until he submits. After all, how many times have you seen that strategy work?  Probably almost everytime it's been tried, I'm betting.  Public humiliation and shame are powerful motivators of human action!  Something in a man loves a good insistent berating from someone to which they owe absolutely nothing.


With that in mind, below find the questions we tweeted to Stephen.


(If anyone else reads this and wants to take a crack at answering them yourself, feel free to give your answers in the Facebook comment section at the bottom!)
