It was another Colbert Report classic, combining spoofs of pop culture, the broadcast media, and religion.
The occasion was Flo Rida’s performance of “Can’t Believe It” on NBC’s Today show, complete with the line about the rapper’s love of shapely posteriors (or “bubble-yum bum”).
Following the performance, Flo Rida explained the gaudy piece of Jesus jewelry he wore during the performance.
“I put God first with everything I do,” said the rapper, soberly.
It was all too much for Colbert and his writers, who logically concluded that “Jesus was a bootie fan,” and also gave a new twist to a classic Christian commandment.
