A pretty funny segment from the Colbert Report on training the US men’s Olympic speedskating team to be as hetero as possible for when they compete in Sochi, Russia – since Russia is notoriously anti-gay.
Buddy Cole was pretty funny this time.
The part with Kyle Carr about 3:00 into the video is priceless.
Buddy Cole: Is speedskating a choice, or were you born a speedskater?
Speedskater Kyle Carr: I think you’re born a speedskater.
Buddy Cole: So you were born a speedskater? Yes. What’s your name?
Kyle Carr: Kyle Carr.
Buddy Cole: [repeats his name with the same butch accent Carr has] Kyle Carr.
Kyle Carr: I’m a short track, um, I do short track…
Buddy Cole: What, you’re a short tracker? Don’t worry about it Kyle, it’s a little cold in here. We’re all a little short-tracked.
