You know, I was trying to find a good Scooby Doo unmasking picture to start this thread off with a good topical style joke. Instead I found this:
www.velmadinkley.com

I don't care, that's just the best way to start this thread.

For years I swore I remembered Match Game 72, recently I discovered the first 70s version was 73. I didn't intentionally lie about it, I made an honest mistake about it.
I'm willing to give him a pass on this.

When I finish reading stories to my one year old, I always end with "The end.  That was a good story."  It's almost always an intentional lie.

So even if Christie intentionally lied to the 4 year old to make him happy, I'm willing to give him a pass.

Reminds of the book about the guy who tried to follow everything in the Bible for a year and the time when he couldn't bring himself to lie to his toddler like the wife wanted by claiming a different kind of bread was the kind of bread she wanted and of course she threw a tantrum.

"Leave the gun. Take the cannoli."

This.  I doubt most of us have particularly clear memories of what shows we watched at 4 vs 7 years old.

On a side note: I really love how Scooby-Doo has become this multi-generational cultural touchstone. I guess there's just something about kids, their talking dog, implied pot use, and monsters that will never get old.

Colbert was "joking."  He's comedian.

Really liked him being fact checked during it.

I loved Emergency and Adam 12 when i was a kid.. but i would not take bets on knowing what actual years those shows were on. Id guess 4th grade? so, i guess i was 9? i could easily be wrong.

I agree with everyone else who the Fark cares. Do you remember the exact year you saw every TV show, movie, and cock you sucked between the ages of 4 and 10? I didn't think so.

Oh, and so long as the governor agrees that Scrappy Doo is an abomination, I don't care when he started watching.

We're too busy arguing about whether misremembering when a cartoon came out makes you a dirty liar or not.

Scooby Doo is on a list of kids' shows that I never got, as a kid.

My friends in 1st Grade or whatever would say, "hey I saw the funniest Scooby Doo episode, it was hilarious!"

So I'd watch the next one, and it would be an insult to retarded kids to say it seemed to have been written by retards.  All the plots were nearly identical, the characters flat, the whole thing a waste of 30 minutes of my young life, or any kid of any age.

And I'd say to myself, "wow, I'm really sorry I missed the previous episode, because *that* must have been the funny one."

/maybe I just didn't smoke enough pot when I was 6

I think that was Colbert's point.

Colbert's segment actually just used the Chris Christie Scooby Doo fact check to make a larger point about how we fact check jokes and frivolous statements of little to no importance while neglecting to do the same for important policy proposals.

Why is the Huffington Post  reporting segments from comedy shows?

New Farkin User Name: Why is the Huffington Post  reporting segments from comedy shows?


Because Huffington Post gets alot of their traffic from entertainment and celebrity based content.

Also the segments from Colbert and the Daily Show are often more informative and honest than the kinds of things you see on CNN and Fox.

Colbert has really been firing on all cylinders since the election. The daily show has been good but Colbert has been on another level. I don;t know if they hired some new writers or they are doping more but I have enjoyed the hell out of the Colbert Report these last few months.

I have no idea why, but your post made me try to find a floating head with the mouth flipped vertically. I couldn't, so I did a quick-and-dirty in Paint because I lack skillz. Hopefully someone else with skillz will make a better one.

I loved that scene last week when he high fived the hand coming from under his desk.

I'd like to point out to everyone that this wasn't even Colbert "Fact checking"  Christie.  This was him QUOTING politifact doing so:
http://www.politifact.com/new-jersey/article/2013/apr/21/chris-chris ti e-claims-scooby-doo-was-his-favorite-/

Yes, a "serious" fact checker did this,  Colbert was making fun of that,  not Christie.
 
2013-04-24 08:54:47 PM
I swear I remember Inspector Gadget being a new show when I was a kid and old enough to form memories of television shows.  Instead, as was pointed out on Colbert, it came out when I was 1.

Don't start too soon, guys.  He might go from bad guy to a guy who is getting picked on.  Voters love the guy who they think is getting picked on.
