chained_bear commented on the word absinthetinence
Abstinence from absinthe. Colbert encourages his viewers to take the absinthetinence pledge:
"I, (state your name), do hereby pledge to practice absinthetinence by remaining absinthetinent from absinthe, since absinthe incidents in many instances induce incipient synesthetic inspiration and sinister synthetic insistence on sin, I sincerely insist I will be absent from instances of absinthe ingestion, this instant."
He also remarks that if you're not drunk on absinthe, you should be able to pronounce this pledge.
