Colbert Urges Nation to Buy Lightsabers

Bonnie Burton | December 3, 2008

Not to be out-geeked by The Daily Show host Jon Stewart, on the Dec. 1 episode of The Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert wagged his finger at the National Toy Hall of Fame curator Christopher Bench for inducting the stick into the museum and called it “all natural, the perfect price.”

Colbert says of Bench:

Wrong! Free is never the perfect price! Retailers depend on holiday toy sales but thanks to Mr. Bench here, parents are gonna realize that sticks literally grow on trees. He makes me so mad I want to poke him in the eye, with not a stick, but a Star Wars Force FX authentic replica lightsaber. (Waves lightsaber around.) Just $79.99!
