Humanity’s Last Chance: Stephen Colbert

That’s right: When humanity is destroyed Stephen T. Colbert will be able to resurrect humanity, single handedly with his own DNA, at least according to a story on CNN.com

In October, Stephen – or as his friends call him: Steve – will send his DNA or at least a digital reproduction of it into space.

“In the unlikely event that Earth and humanity are destroyed, mankind can be resurrected with Stephen Colbert’s DNA”, the article claims and continues that “The host of “The Colbert Report” will essentially be preserved so that aliens can clone him.”

While we applaud this decision and are ardent fans of Mr. Colbert’s journalistic work, we must question whether Steve is the most appropriate individual to serve as the ‘savior’ of mankind and perhaps Mr. Colbert’s ego has truly outgrown this world.
