    Wow... seriously what is the point of that cup... Thank you Stephen Colbert for making my morning as I had not seen this yet. I'd buy a Toylyte though. =3

    Ok, I would make fun of that idea too. Honestly, the only real use for it would be to tell if someone spiked, poisoned, or put date rape in my drink.

    Just my luck. I'd like to see the video for myself but it's not available in my location. :( Prudes.

    This is why I hate the CRTC, video cannot be viewed in my location, the show airs on channels available around here but for whatever stupid reason I can't watch it online without going to, which if I may add sucks and is slow as molasses. Lucky I have other ways to view this video and had already seen it before it was posted here. Amazing how dumb ideas snowball in to creation, regardless of how ridiculous they may be and how much criticism they receive.

    The only thing that would be humorous about Colbert is if there was a video of him wiping his *** on Oprah

    Yeah I had to use YouTube, really we should have linked to a YouTube video anyway. Just search for the title.

    About the cup, it seems to be beyond stupid. But maybe there is real world applications for people with disabilities?

    I can't find clip anywhere that is not 'blocked' by some corporate whiners or some other bs.

    I can try watching a whole episode on if I knew what date he aired this.

    Otherwise cool story bro.... >.>

    I'm not planning to sit on the toilet, long enough to be able to use a laptop/phone!
