Like all intelligent adults, we get all of our news from Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report andThe Daily Show.

Bill O'Reilly, famous Fox News conservative host, is a ‘hero’ of Stephen Colbert, and last week Colbert reported that an active outpost of soldiers in Afghanistan was less than thrilled to receive a box full of Papa bear’s new book, Pinheads and Patriots: Where You Stand in The Age Of Obama.

The boxes of O’Reilly’s new book were promptly burned on the base and that photo has since gone viral.

That inspired ‘a clapping rage’ in Colbert, but the anonymous soldiers clarified, while he/she did “take pleasure in removing a few copies of this bigoted twerp’s writings from circulation,” it’s merely army practice to burn all waste on the base.
