I can't help but comment on this response from last night's The Colbert Report about Colbert's challenge that Jimmy Fallon donate $26,000 to DonorsChoose.org:
First of all, Steven Colbert, the line(s):
"If you can't donate 26,000 dollars of your best friend's money without asking him first, then what's the point of being best friends? ... I give and I give and I give ... your money to other people, and I get nothing back"
But then, Fallon goes on to break down laughing during Colbert pretending to give a heartbroken BFF-breakup speech - completely ruining the skit in his trademark fashion.
And then, as if being a horrible actor and comedian who ruins everything that he is involved in weren't enough, Jimmy Fallon went on to be a selfish loser by - instead of conceding and donating his own money - asking his viewers to donate the $26,000 so he won't have to pay a cent out of his own pocket.
What's a matter, Jimmy, you're big, fancy television contract doesn't pay you enough to spare your own money? You couldn't even spare half of it and let your viewers donate the rest? You could have donated the first $26,000 yourself and then asked the viewers to donate at least another $26,000, so that DonorsChoose.org would get over $50,000!
Even though I doubt that you'll read this, I challenge you, Jimmy Fallon (or the studio that produces your show), to match whatever is donated by you and Stephen Colbert's fans.
And in the hope of taking as much of your money as possible, I just made a donation of $50 to Let's learn team sports with real equipment by going through the link on www.ColbertNation.com, and I encourage my readers to do the same!
You can pick another charity though if you want :D
