Stephen Colbert Fails Miserably At High Tea
In case you missed it last night, in honor of Kate Middleton and Prince William's upcoming wedding, Stephen Colbert got lessons in English table manners from royal expert Hugo Vickers. The two sat down to a proper English table setting for tea and biscuits. As one could imagine, things digressed rather quickly.

1. That was funny. I had to see it again.


I wonder if Colbert warned Mr.Vickers what he may be in for. He was really a good sport about his shenanigans.

2. I'm sure he knew he was on a comedy show
But had little idea of how far Steven would take it. He seemed to enjoy the straight man role.
