Stephen Colbert on "Gay Oreos" and the Hidden Homosexual Agenda of Twinkies, Mounds, and Animal Crackers

Surely by now you've caught wind of the "gay Oreo" "scandal." In short, Oreo posted an image of a rainbow-filled cookie on its Facebook page in recognition of Pride month, and homophobes went berserk, calling for a boycott the company. (To which every gay rights supported in America said, "Great more cookies for us!")

Naturally this whole episode was candy for Stephen Colbert, who last night went to town on the Oreo sexual metaphors ("The things I've done with them!....Splitting them open and licking their cream." AHHH!) He then examined the hidden homosexual agenda of other favorite snacks like Twinkies ("Your mascot is a naked man in a cowboy hat.") and Almond Joy/Mounds ("Almond Joy has nuts. Mounds? Someone's tucking.") Hoo boy!
