Hand Signs

This is hilariously funny; it helps that the two Occupiers involved handled the interview almost perfectly, and therefore played a good feed to Colbert's comic. (Which is essentially what Colbert, following in Stewart's footsteps, does: he plays the funny man to guests, who are supposed to play the straight man. When it works it really works; but not everyone can play it straight.)

    We laughed. We cried. Tears of laughter.

    My favorite point is where Colbert just started making up hand signs; it was almost too funny to bear.

    It's true, I literally just woke up my wife with my laughing.

    Not surprised at all!
