I wish I knew more details about this story beyond “I saw this on Colbert Report last night and thought it was hilarious.” So instead of reporting the news, I’m going to report on Colbert reporting on the news.
In last night’s segment of “Tip of the Hat/Wag of the Finger,” Colbert discussed (and made fun of) this BBC story. There isn’t much to it. It’s just a group of 50 rabbis flying in a plane over Israel praying to rid the country of swine flu.
The story isn’t so exciting but the video is awesome. However, BBC doesn’t want to let me post the video so you will have to click on the link above.
But what I can link to is the Colbert Report video (unless you’re from Canada). I won’t say much, except that Colbert blows a shofar. It’s worth a watch.
