Stephen Colbert's Ode to Tater Tots, "Food"



On last night's episode of The Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert presented another in his always entertaining "Thought for Food" series.

This time, he begins with the news that the USDA is looking to restrict the amount of potatoes served in school lunches, which prompts an inspiring ode to one of Gut Check's favorite guilty pleasures, the humble Tater Tot.

Then, he addresses the attempt by Yum! Brands, parent company of KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and ugly stepsister Long John Silver's, to become part of the federal food-stamp program.

The totally SFW and frankly quite moving video is after the jump:
