Characters: colbert, woman, me

I was watching what seemed to be an episode of a talk show hosted by Stephen Colbert, but somehow I could interact with it.
colbert: "Don't you want to meet your maker?"
woman: "To the extent I have a maker I've met them, my parents."
colbert: "I hope you've never seen, let's say, an insect...as a mere outgrowth of your own human-centric philological conceptions."
me: (interrupting somehow) "Wait, never? If you don't believe in a simplified model, and then later learn it's more complex than you thought and see it in a deeper way, then you don't get that feeling of realization."
colbert: "What I meant, was..."
me: "What you SAID was you hoped everyone was born with perfect beliefs, as you apparently were. But for my part, I hope you sometime have the experience of learning something profound. It's fun."
colbert: (laughing) "Well, I hope if you continue this train of thought you do so more quietly, because there are people upstairs sleeping and if you wake them up that's going to be a problem."

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
