As an intro to a bit on Japan's canceled whaling season, Stephen Colbert referenced Cookie Monster's healthy eating advice: "Whale is a sometimes food. Much like Cookie Monster meat." He also offered an appetizing visual of what that meat might look like. Coincidentally, Cookie Monster was also on Top Chef last night. Think the Quickfire was originally supposed to be Cook a Muppet?
Anyway, Colbert wagged his finger at the "environmentalist blubber-huggers" responsible for the canceled whale hunt. Japanese whalers say the anti-whaling group Sea Shepherd made the ocean too dangerous for their ships.
