Alabama is In

And you thought all Alabama could do was turn out American Idol contestants and winners for that matter. But back the first part of October I posted about the Stephen Colbert Museum opening in Colbert County, Alabama and how the county had recently renamed itself after you know who. Well, “The Stephen Colbert Show” plans to air the segments next week on Comedy Central. Imagine, a county actually changing its name. Of course, this is a huge honor, and I’m sure Stephen will be duly humble.

You know I’m kidding, don’t you? Colbert (the ‘bert’ is pronounced as in Bert & Ernie and not as ‘bear’ like Stephen pronounces his name) County had been known best as the home of Helen Keller before all of this hoopla by one of the cleverest men in America. Anyway, I’ll be checking it out. Smart folks those Colbert Countians.

Many thanks. Glad to see your comments. If you return, you'll see that I am a huge fan of Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart and Comedy Central in general.
