Once upon a time, Stephen Colbert, the lovely and hilarious host of our favorite political talk show, The Colbert Report, graciously invited our bosstone to be on his show. During their interview, he asked Tavi if we might maybe think about considering having him do an Ask a Grown sometime. Our answer, of course, was, “Hell yes, you wonderful man!!”
Now, we’ve cashed in on that generous offer to bring you this video containing SC’s wise advice about misogynist jokes, boyfriend-based dilemmas, and how to tell if someone thinks you’re cool. And, Stephen, we’ll make that last one easy for you: WE THINK YOU’RE *EXTRAORDINARILY* COOL.

A very picky chinese farmer who had a bout of genius decided that pears were boring.. tasty but very boring and uninteresting. As any modern day picasso or brilliant person does he decide to go against his mother’s words and play with his food. Setting out to create a buddha pear by encasing the young pears in molds while they’re still on the tree.As they grow they have no choice but to take the shape of the spiritual figure. Buddha pears are sold in china, but the farmer plans to spread the love worldwide.
that’s pretty awesome.

Interview with Ellen Page on the Colbert Report
Also good for the kids. They encourage having slow readers read to the family pets. A dog will listen to a kid read a whole book one damn sssyl-la——-ble at a time, and it will never get frustrated, or correct their pronunciation, or start playing Angry Bird because it can’t stand listening to the slowness any more. The dog will look at the kid approvingly, because, human. Human is talking. Human is interacting.
So this is a great win-win.
