Stephen Colbert's Take On The Plaxico Burress Incident

Stephen Colbert Has An Interesting Take On Man-Gun Relationships, As It Relates To The Man Named Plaxico

For all of you out there who may already be sick of the constant Plaxico coverage, I apologize in advance. But sometimes, a story comes along that is just too good to be true. This is one of them, and as a result, this story probably won't go away too soon.

Stephen Colbert has always been a favorite of mine, and his Colbert Report on Comedy Central is definitely must-watch TV. Much like everyone else, he has addressed the ridiculous Plaxico Burress incident involving Plaxico shooting himself in the leg with a Glock that he had tucked into his sweatpants while in a nightclub.

As usual, Stephen's take on it is a bit different from (and better than) everyone else's. Check it out.

And if you live in Atlanta, do be careful around the mountain lions on the subway.

I'm not talking about Plaxico himself, just the state of NFL players and the increased rate of criminal records and suspensions.

Have you tired David Allen Grier's Chocolate News? Sure he's not Chappelle, but he's well within local calling distance of the Chappelle Show.

I've seen that one. It's ok. There have been a couple really funny sketches but nothing like Chapelle. What I would love to see is South Park take a jab at all of the messed up NFL misfits. That would be hilarious.

This whole situation is comedy gold. It is also times like this that I wish Dave Chappelle still had a show.

Plaxico would be carrying the gun to protect himself from Wayne Brady.

Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a Plax?!?

I prefer Stewart's take on this, mostly for the "Jon Stewart Touches Kids" and "Our Little Secret" graphics. 

Both guys are hilarious though.  Definitely one of the best hours in television.
