Lean On

Did you see The Colbert Report last night? I gotta say, the end of the show, where Stephen was joined by Brian Eno (!) and Michael Stipe (!!) to sing Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me,” was more moving than I expected it to be.

I think I have to put more thought into my answer, but a great cheeseburger and fries doesn’t sound too bad. A good gyro would make my mouth water as well. A last meal would also justify having anything from ThisIsWhyYoureHuge.com
