We love Stephen Colbert long time, but we are a bit confused by the honor bestowed on him this weekend:
"Truthiness" and "Wikiality" — two of the words popularized by political satirist Stephen Colbert on his TV show "The Colbert Report"— were named on Sunday the top television buzzwords of the year.
On the one hand, we want to congratulate him, and on the other hand, we're not sure beating out "You're Fired!" is such a big deal. At first you read that and you think "ha, ha, funny joke," and then you go to the actual article and find that Colbert just narrowly beat out "Katrina," which is a buzzword for a type of hurricane that destroys thousands of lives in 2006, and "Katie" which is a buzzword because Katie Couric what the fuck?
