Wikiality, my hero and The Colbert Report.

My hero, Stephen Colbert should be applauded for pointing out facts of life that are sooooo freaking obvious but we so blindly ignore JUST BECAUSE the majority of the population thinks it is right.

We follow like cattle.

From the guy who gave the world the word "truthiness", we have a new entry.

"Wikiality"

Excerpt:

Colbert praised Wikipedia for "wikiality," the reality that exists if you make something up and enough people agree with you - it becomes reality.

Now, how true is that.

Now, I am pretty sure everyone has sort of heard of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" but not many people watch "The Colbert Report" that runs RIGHT AFTER the Daily Show. I have taken the trouble of finding the YouTube clip so you can bask in all that glory that is Stephen Colbert. Stop watching American/Singapore/Pop Idol, and watch something that is a little smarter for crying out loud.

Watch it here.




And Psycho Phil, you should start watching "The Colbert Report" if you haven't already.
