Sure?  I was speaking to Lizzie, who was watching it on TV when it happened.  Colbert Report, last night.  It was just a quick cut away to someone eating an Apple, so you may have blinked and missed it, or something.

I suppose it's possible. Nothing happened during his actual conversation with the priest, though; of that I'm fairly sure.

I notice a mention of illumination soon followed, as well.

Hmmm *strokes chin*

EDIT:

AND Colbert talks about making everyone else infalliable and the Pope falliable.

Oh damn, that was right after the commercial break and I was rushing back in from the kitchen.

And I only turned on the television to watch that very moment! :argh!:

And Colbert complains he isn't included in Lives of the Saints

HOW MANY HINTS CAN HE DROP?

Looks pretty unmistakable to me.
This success needs to be leveraged somehow, for something.

Letter-writing campaign congratulating him as our Brother in Discord?
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

Idea:

We should put some publicity up about "Discordian Rallies" of some sort. That way our letters can be centered around the horrible unlawful, sinful, bizarre, believable things which happen at Discordian gatherings. "Dear Abby: last weekend my son went to this Discordian rally thing, an he came back with a tattoo the word "Spag" tattooed on his neck!" Everyone can adlib what happened.

The real interesting thing is going to be that if tons of newspapers cover this thing within a short amount of time, news may emerge on the phenomenon itself. This sort of meta-news will cause reporters to write rather frankly about Discord, raising awareness, etc etc.



To Do:
  • Collect addresses of the ten most popular advice columns.
  • Write up a page on the wiki about AbbyGASM. Explain what it is, how it works, and how to get involved. Make sure the "buzz week" date is posted loud and clear.
  • Push links to this project ALL OVER THE WEB. Hit 23ae, facebook, myspace, lj, poee, eb&G, irreality, ANYWHERE where Discordians hang out.
  • During buzz week, and for a week or two afterwards, we'll hide the wiki page, so that advice columnists doing background research on this thing won't see the project and spoil the prank.
  • Collect any buzz that comes up, and post it to the wiki



Volunteers?

We could tie this into Colbert.  Get him to mention it?

Greetings GA!

As you've likely noticed, we've been....fairly busy, shall we say, when it comes to pranking Colbert.  8)
