Comic relief.

“Drinking and foul language?! That goes against everything pirates stand for!”

“We have bred a super race of taser-resistant drunks.”

Stephen Colbert’s take on the PNC Park tasing incident will have you — and I’m going to spell it out: Rolling On The Floor Laughing Your Ass Off.

Maybe the ninja uprising we’re seeing in Pittsburgh is due to their upcoming war with the taser-resistant drunks.

Get ‘yer popcorn; this is going to be AWESOME.

    Colbert is awesome! I wish all politicians had even a bit of his sense of humor and perspective. Thanks for the post, Ginny.

    Nice to see Pgh’s repeat criminal cops, AND the hideous Pirates record showcased on national TV!

    “It is like a time out for your child’s vision and breathing.”

    Love Colbert!

    Did you see this one? I almost wet myself from laughing so hard.

    I loved his comment about taking out the whole crowd at a Bucs-Nationals game…

    It’s pathetic when the camera tracks a fly ball and the only thing near it is a pigeon and it didn’t hit the pigeon in flight!

    You know, I’ll joke with my friends about how horrible the Buccos are or how no one ever goes to games but it’s just sad when the rest of the world starts realizing it too…

    “That policeman’s arm is so weak that he could pitch for the Pirates.”

    Hilarious if it wouldn’t be true ;)
