Sir, if I may, I want to party with you, cowboy

Yesterday, Cave of Forgotten Dreams Director Werner Herzog appeared on The Colbert Report, and things got more than a little other-wordly as Werner explained to Stephen why he added radioactive albino crocodiles to his documentary about cave paintings...

Some days I'm embarrassed to be American. I know the atmosphere of the show is utterly goofy and ironic, but this audience (and Steven himself) were rather like jocks picking on nerds. While Herzog was delivering a perfectly understandable, plain vanilla explanation of the complex philosophical arguments in "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" and he is (despite trivial journalists who say so) not at all eccentric. Just smart.
