Colbert: "I say we carpet bomb the University of Wisconsin"

You read it here first.

Colbert was talking about stories of giant badgers roaming Basra (in southern Iraq). Bombing UW was just to be safe.

For our international readers: The University of Wisconsin sports teams are called the 'Badgers' and our mascot (yeah, I know, a whole nother world) is 'Bucky Badger', pictured here.

Why do you hate us, Stephen, why?

Update, 6:20 am: Looks like Colbert barely skimmed the cream on the real story —see this.
