Those of you who have followed my on-going, one-sided, and largely irrelevant feud with television news anchor Stephen Colbert know one thing Stephen Colbert doesn’t. You also know that on December 14, 2008 I challenged Mr. Colbert to open 2009 the way God opened the bible, with a snake story. He backed down. This month, instead of marking his fall season return with a serpent, Stephen opened with yet another spider story. Why does Stephen give so much time to spiders? Because some arachnodufii named a trap door spider after him, and another one after David Bowie.
Well, I’d like to make another stand for reptiles: Stephen if you put me on your show, I’ll name a lizard after you. (My lizards are already named Lizzy and Balthazar so if you accept my challenge there may be a brief period of confusion.)
