As someone who considers herself a huge fan of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, I must report severe failure and guilt issues concerning those shows as of late. Many weeknights, I am either furiously writing about irrelevancy in motion for hours on end or plowing through prime time shows for Sound Bites. Then it’s suddenly 2:30 a.m. and I’m 22 minutes into my recording of Glee. I know watching TV is a treat in itself, but getting to watch TV without the competing glow of a laptop screen can feel like a vacation. All of this nonsense is to say that (1) Last night’s Stewart-to-Colbert throw — “Jon Is a Downer” (on Hulu) — was one of the funniest and most ridiculous ever; (2) Stephen wasn’t sure how to turn off his iPhone either — Stars: They’re Just Like Us!; and now, the life-changing (3)…CrispyCones is a company that actually exists. It’s the food you love…in a cone. An Americone Dream? (Tip of the Hat/Wag of the Finger to CrispyCones starts at 3:30 in the clip below.)

CrispyCones seems like something for which the Annie Lennox lookalike on NBC’s Shark Tank would have offered $250,000 and a 50 percent share in the business. What a tease, though — they’re not in convenience stores yet. Anyone else need CrispyCones in their lives…like, this weekend?
