Stephen Colbert Gets A Free iPad

Stephen Colbert has been using his Comedy Central show for weeks to plead for a free iPad and last night, he showed it off. “Nevermind how I got it — I had two kidneys,” he said to audience cheers. “Luckily, there’s an app that filters urine.” Colbert also showed how the media hype over the iPad has built to a crescendo the last few days. After listing the rave reviews from various outlets, he pointed out that Newsweek was so excited about the iPad, “They made it their first non-Obama cover in 15 months.” Colbert compared the magazine’s cover treatment to a free full page ad — and contrasted it with the paid ad on the back cover for — it’s too perfect — the Amazon (NSDQ: AMZN) Kindle. Colbert’s best line was delivered as he discussed the iPad’s features, noting that “Just like the iPhone, you can’t make calls with it.”
