It's a rip-off!!! it is less than 5minutes.

It conveys no story AT ALL., it is only slightly funny. It is less than 5 minutes only.

Eh...

I love Colbert and his humor, but this short little essay was lackluster overall. It's narrated by Stephen himself, which is nice. It's sort of funny in the beginning, and is well-written with a good dose of the wit for which the author is so well-known. None of this makes up for the fact that it gets old less than half way through. At 7 minutes, that's saying a lot. Worth a listen for true fans, but generally not something I'd listen to ever again.
