In order to get rock star Morrissey to appear on his show, Stephen Colbert had to agree to his entire studio being free of animal products for the day – and therefore all the staff going veggie. [readon]
In his Tea-Party-style TV persona, Colbert has mounted some of the best satires against animal abusers (like here where he take Congressman Steve King apart for his defense of dogfighting).
Here’s last night’s conversation with Morrissey, including discussion of his song “Meat Is Murder“, which Colbert pretends to poke fun at. (Morrissey can’t quite keep up with Colbert’s leaping repartee, but it’s all for a good cause!)
