Americans love watching people go around in circles

The Olympics are coming up. Only for some reason, they’re having them in the winter. What’s worse, they’re being held in Vancouver, Canada.

But not every team will get to go to these alleged “winter games,” unless they get help from the followers of a show on Comedy Central (which is also how it worked in ancient Greece). The U.S. Speed Skating team was sponsored by DSB Bank, which is based in the Netherlands, somewhere near the Dutch. Then the bank went belly-up.

Stephen Colbert and his followers, the Colbert Nation, came to the rescue. Lead by their namesake, the Colbert Nation have put up thousands of dollars to send our boys and girls all the way to Vancouver, which I believe is a matter of miles north of Seattle.

In unrelated news, The Guys are forming a curling team, and we need money.
