The Wife Has a New Favorite Thing…

After her fifth time watching this, she said, “I want to be Stephen Colbert’s friend.”

    Very funny. We were going this way at my parish for about 18 months. Then Father Marxist baled for a lady friend.

    I missed a great deal of liturgical abuse. I guess I am lucky.

  2. Tom Craughwell says

    I’m with Mrs. Lickona! Stephen Colbert is HIGH-larious. And his skewering of both the insipid “King of Glory” AND the liturgical galumphing that is thought to just tickle God pink is pure genius. Except, after watching the youtube clip, now I can’t get the damn tune out of my head.

  3. Exactly! It’s been in my head since yesterday.

  4. AnotherCoward says

    Is it good or bad, though, that Colbert has us so completely mesmerized by this?

    I can’t get it out of my head, and I keep wanting to watch it.

    And, on an unrelated note, I’ve also fallen in love with “crappit”. People are amused with its usage … and it’s just so on point in a non-offensive way.

  5. Matthew Lickona says

    “I can’t get this song out of my head! Crappit!”

    The Wife keeps coming back to it as well, and that’s very, very unusual for an Internet gag…

  6. Does anyone else want to know why (and when and by whom) this was made? He looks like he’s playing Chuck Noblet (at least, this dance is taking place in what looks like a schoolroom). But it never appeared on Strangers With Candy, I’m sure…was it goofing between takes (with editing in camera)? Was it a private joke among friends (e.g., between Colbert and those laughing off-camera) about the insipidity of G&P…maybe even after attending a Mass at Stephen’s daughter’s Catholic school? Can I move to wherever these people are?

    Right and wrong about SWC–this bit played behind one episode’s credits. More recently he recycled this song-and-dance routine for Conan after talking about his other job, teaching Sunday school. During which interview he says he gives the kids his “own specific story of salvation,” whatever that means. He’s probably like most Catholics in this country, i.e., cruising the cafeteria. But at least he knows a joke (i.e., Glory and Praise) when he hears it.
