Doctors in Israel are testing a new pill that claims to aid in constipation by inducing vibrations. However, for those of you who need fecal relief much, much sooner, Stephen Colbert has a solution that is neither scientific nor tested, but IS sponsored by a brand name: push your (T-Mobile) cell phone up your butt.

"When you have the nation's fastest 4G LTE network," Colbert jokes, "you can call your colon from anywhere in the country with great reception, no matter how far you jammed it up there."


Sigh. Even when Colbert is "phoning it in" with brand-sponsored content, he still gets the last laugh.
