The "case" of the stolen joke

The big news in the world of television this week is that a sniveling little twerp from AirAmerica who is on a show called “the Young Turks” has decided to sue Mr. Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report. The twerp, who claims his name is Cenk Uygur, claims that Stephen Colbert stole a joke from him. This is, of course, patently ridiculous.

First let’s examine the joke. Cenk says that on September 7, 2007 he commented on the Republican presidential candidates debate that the candidates used the work ‘honour’ (or ‘honor’ as our friends to the south misspell it) so much that they sounded like Klingons. On September 11, 2007 on the Colbert Report Mr. Colbert made a similar observation in which he showed a photo of a Klingon, calling it a photo of Rudy Giuliani. Big honking deal. Similar? Sure. Stolen? I think not.

Let’s examine the two men involved. The alleged Cenk Uygur would appear to be a Turk of some description who nobody has ever heard of. I mean, AirAmerica for gosh sakes. Then there is Mr. Stephen Colbert, one of the sharpest political commentators in North America. The man is listened to by hundreds of millions of people on a nearly daily basis. He hosts the hugely popular Colbert Report and in truth has no need to steal “jokes” or anything else from anybody. Especially from a gomer like Cenk Uygur, if that’s his real name.

I would like to propose a more likely scenario here. That Cenk fellow is a plant by the extremist elements of the enemies of the United States and freedom in general. Is it possible that his real name is Osama or bin Laden or something along those lines? I suggest that he may be here to distract us from what is really going on with some sort of frivolity, such as a lawsuit against the greatest voice for conservatism the United States, and indeed the world has ever seen. Just something to consider.

Anyway… Humouroceros
