Stephen Colbert has been on vacation for the last two weeks, so he’s been a bit behind with the news. Beginning his show last night, he wasted no time in getting down to business and addressing the most important headlines of the past two weeks: the awards he’s won.
During his break Colbert received a Peabody award. More importantly, however, he was named by Maxim magazine as one of the “Most Beautiful Women in the World” (the 69th most beautiful, to be exact). He’s the first man ever to get a spot on the list.
Last night on The Colbert Report, Colbert finally responded to the honor. In typical Colbert style, he gloated like crazy. Along the way, he managed to sneak in a few digs at some of the women who finished ahead of him in the rankings, as well as the girlfriends of all of his viewers.
Colbert joked that no award is beyond his reach. “I expect to also win the Westminster Dog Show and Motortrend Car of the Year,” he quipped.
