Colbert vs. O’Reilly: Colbert steals Bill’s microwave!
First, on the Fox News Channel on O’Reilly’s “No Spin Zone” :
Then, late night on the Colbert Report (great montage to begin):
The AP reports that Colbert also swiped the microwave from the O’Reilly green room … mission accomplished! No Hot Pockets for them!
From the report:
Once inside Colbert’s studio – decorated for the occasion with a large “Mission Accomplished” banner and a portrait of O’Reilly placed fireside – O’Reilly seemed to be regretting the decision.
“This was a huge mistake, me coming on here,” he muttered.
It may have been a greater error allowing Colbert into the Fox News headquarters, located near the “Colbert Report” studios in Manhattan. There, Colbert smuggled a microwave out of the green room, a bounty which he proudly displayed at the conclusion of his show.
A spokesman for Fox News confirmed that Colbert stole the microwave, but said it was all in good fun.
