Stephen Colbert Disses Gandhi

by at . Comments

Stephen Colbert gave the commencement speech at Princeton University this past weekend. As usual, The Colbert Report host offered everyone pearls of wisdom.

"Gandhi said, ‘you must be the change you want to see in the world,'" Colbert told an audience of thousands. "But may I also point out he drank his own urine, so let's not go overboard on his advice."

It's hard to argue with that logic.

The protege of Jon Stewart added that the Class of 2008 "can change the world," but he pleaded with its members to "please don't do that."

"Some of us like it the way it is," Colbert said. "Personally, things are going great for me right now."

The Hollywood Gossip agrees. We're all for change, Barack Obama, but keep your focus on Iraq and the mortgage crisis. Don't enact underwear-wearing policies for female celebrities. Please.
