Colbert Report

Making a list: Words in Colbert’s intro

In an attempt to avoid the real work I need to do, I’m compiling a list of words that have appeared in Colbert’s opening intro. You know the one. The eagle, the flag, Colbert flying through the air and landing in an arena that looks like Betsy Ross threw up all over it.

I’m in a parody/satire class, so I’ll play this off as research.

Here’s the list. If you have words to add, please leave me a comment or send me an email! Your comment won’t show up right away, but I will approve them asap! (Damn sapmmers).

Also, here are a couple of blogs I pulled words from and had a nice little read about the theory behind this opening:
