John Waters on 'Colbert': 'Wouldn't you rather your kid be a drug dealer than a drug addict?'

Posted on

Sometimes Colbert and Stewart have the most random-seeming guests on, and you forget that yep, they are some of your favorite real-life creatures ever. Here’s director and Role Models author John Waters on last night’s Colbert Report. It will be tough, but take a break from marveling at his white shoes and (book) jacket-matching socks to listen to verbal gems along the lines of this: “I taught a first grade class — the same class that I teach in prison. We did improv. We did an airplane crash and they loved it. They were hugging me. I gave them presents like Oprah. I gave them rat skeletons and they really liked it.” We really like you, too, John Waters. Video after the jump.

Can you go anywhere without looking like a child molester, PopWatchers? And which late night guests have been the most pleasant/strange surprises for you recently?
