Colbert on the Eggo Shortage, Calls for Obama to Open Strategic Waffle Reserves


After revealing that he keeps his secret stash of waffles inside Sarah Palin's Going Rogue, last night on The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert reported on the worldwide shortage of Eggo waffles:

Why isn't the CDC on top of this, folks? By which I mean the Center for Delicious Circles. Which monitors our nation's supplies of Eggos, pancakes, pizzas, donuts, and pizza donuts. Until this is over, I am putting this nation at WAFF-CON 4, and calling on President Obama to open our strategic waffle reserves.

The segment in which he reworks cable news footage about swine flu vaccines to instead make it seem as though there's a nationwide waffle panic: Genius.
