Colbert's "Metaphor off" with Sean Penn last night was brilliant. But Colbert told Penn "Metaphors be with you." I now have it on good authority that George Lakoff used to have that up on his door back in the early 1980s. Turns out, the joke is all over the place — see the image.
Well, Stephen, you lost to Sean, and we just can't rub it in. Just do us a favor: Please crush George Clooney into molecular dust during your upcoming Hyperbole Off. (See here for details, and video from the Penn show.)
