Wednesday night on “The Colbert Report,” host Stephen Colbert discussed a recent report by the United Nations that said humans will be turning to bugs as a source of food in the future.
People who watch the show each night, Colbert said, will know that he is “un-fond” of the United Nations. The relief organization, he explained is “hell-bent on taking our guns and making us speak Esperanto.”
And now, he said, “The U.N. bullies want to make us eat a bug.”
The United Nations report touted bugs as not just a means of feeding people sustainably, but also as an economic opportunity for poor and urban people in the form of “mini-livestock.”
“Do you hear that?” he asked the audience. “‘Mini-livestock!'”
“So, let me get this straight,” he said. “According to the U.N., all you New Yorkers with bedbugs are technically ranchers.”
