a special note to stephen colbert

I know what you need. It is soft and moist. It's suh-weet. Getting it only makes you want it more. It's the perfect way to end a meal or start a day. It's the climax of any celebration. (If it's really, really good, it's worth celebrating itself!) And next April, when my book hits the shelves, I would like to sit on your lap and give it to you.

A slice of Truthiness cake is yours for the tasting. All you have to do to get it is invite me to be a guest of The Colbert Report.

Perfect!

Diana Pappas said... Best Blogger Tips

He can't possibly say no!

Sarah said... Best Blogger Tips

Seriously, who can resist?
(And you really have to come up with a recipe for Truthiness Cake now).

lysandra said... Best Blogger Tips

Love it! You would be great for that show!

Kim Hosey said... Best Blogger Tips

I'll take a bite of that truthiness cake. Especially if it has coconut or chocolate. Or both.

Okay, I'm hungry now. I blame you.

Mary said... Best Blogger Tips

Very ambitious of you. I like it! I hope you get on the show so I can tell everyone I know you.

Rachel said... Best Blogger Tips

You would be so, so awesome on Colbert! That is one episode I would for sure watch. ;) Also, I really, really want cake now!

Beth said... Best Blogger Tips

This would make a great book jacket.

jennifer said... Best Blogger Tips

YNL said... Best Blogger Tips

Actually, if I were Colbert, I kind of WOULD be scared... but in a good way.

Aunt Teena said... Best Blogger Tips

Did you really send this to him? It's great. If I had a show, I'd invite you on. If he invites you on, I'll buy his book. Although I'll probably buy it when it comes out in paperback anyway. You'd be a great guest.

suttonhoo said... Best Blogger Tips

oh yes.

he doesn't *know* how bad he needs it.

but he will.

April said... Best Blogger Tips

Yep. He definitely needs a big slice of that!

Manisha said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh, he absolutely cannot refuse!

John said... Best Blogger Tips

I'll set aside my jealousy, but only cause it's colbert.

but i want cake too!

Do I have to rescind my membership in the Republican party to watch you on the Colbert Report? Because I intend to watch, but I don't want any trouble! I hope you sit on lots of laps--this book is going to be great, and everyone with a lap--and many without--will have to read it. Dogfacemom

Laura said... Best Blogger Tips

Colbert? Are you sure? What about The Daily Show?

Either way, I don't see how he can refuse your offer. And I can't wait to read your book.

Leslie F. Miller said... Best Blogger Tips

Thanks, everybody.

In answer to a question I've gotten from many, it's true that Jon Stewart is a hottie; who could deny it? But, as he admitted last night, an author would pretty much have to write a book called How George Bush and His War Have Effed Up the Universe in order to get on his show. His guests are usually political. Cake is not political. But it's cultural and very American, despite its mixed influences, and I think that's enough to be considered as a guest for the show.

Joy said... Best Blogger Tips

How can you say no to that? I would love to see you on his show.

Barbara Benham said... Best Blogger Tips

Wow! There's must be a political tie-in you could concoct to get your cakeness self on his show. And I bet Colbert likes to like the spoon.
