Watch Stephen Colbert Take on Subway's 'Scamwich'

Last night on the Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert addressed the recent attack on Subway's "Footlong" which has been found to measure only eleven inches. Colbert calls the incident a "corporate scamwich" and notes that the President has been "strangely silent" on the issue. "We have been five dollar foot-wronged," he declares. "Twelve inches is twelve inches — I know it's cold out, but that's no excuse." Colbert describes the discrepancy as "an enormous breach of trust" and praises a related article by the New York Post, calling its authors "The Woodward and Bernstein of Oscar and Mayer." Go watch.
