The Irish Times makes it to Comedy Central

The extremely funny Colbert Report, which runs immediately after the mother ship Daily Show hosted by Jon Stewart has an occasional segment called un-American news where Stephen makes fun, in Bill O'Reilly fashion, of overseas newspapers. Monday's spot featured an edition of the Irish Times. Stephen holds up the "Births, Marriages, and Deaths" page and as the camera pans across the top of the page, he complains that there are only deaths listed, no births or marriages. He then makes a funny remark along the lines of the Irish not having enough sex. It looks like there's an active link for the spot here (click where he's holding a copy of Le Figaro); the Irish Times bit happens at about the 2:45 mark.

[Here's a direct link; how long it will remain good is unclear]
