Things That Are Nice: Day 10


Linky linky if that doesn't work.

I am forever tempted to do this. Corner people I think are awesome, and tell them in great detail why I think that. I almost never do it -- most people get severely weirded out over it, and it's not worth the awkwardness. But Stephen Colbert got the chance to do just that when Jon Stewart left The Daily Show. The cast and crew evidently plotted this without letting Fearless Leader know; Colbert knew full well Stewart was going to squirm and sniffle and try to weasel out, hence blocking his escape after the bit they'd actually rehearsed.

It's not on the soundtrack to the broadcast footage, but a couple of the other correspondents have mentioned that the mob sent up a gleeful chant of "Made him cry! Made him cry!" as they gathered afterwards.
