Stephen Colbert on Denny's New Hobbit-Themed Menu

Stephen Colbert is in the middle of Hobbit Week, celebrating the forthcoming release of the movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Last night, he took on "the wizards at Denny's" who have launched a hobbit-themed menu that is "a delicious tribute to a beloved children's book, though the breakfast has a much darker ending." As Colbert says, "Yes, eat like a hobbit because at Denny's you can't eat like a human." He also claims that J.R.R. Tolkien would probably eat the Gandalf Gobble Melt and suggests, "Maybe get the Ring Burger, which the legends say will turn your intestines into Mount Doom." Here, go watch.
