MOT fans of the Colbert Report got a huge boost yesterday when Stephen Colbert reported on Israelâ€™s newly designated National Bird the long-billed hoopoe, celebrated the kosher certification of giraffe meat by dancing a combo-Irish jig/ Horah and spilling the Mani.
In his own words, or those of his very funny (Jewish?) writers, Lâ€™Giraffem to you Stephen!
Let it be known that we have always known that giraffe was kosher Stephen, we just don’t know where to cut its throat. LOL.
