At work eating lunch all by your lonesome today? You can find some solace in knowing that Stephen Colbert is here to join you -- through a screen, at least -- as he embarks on the first in a five-part series called "Stephen Colbert Has Stephen Colbert's Daily Lunch With You Starring Stephen Colbert."

If this was elementary, Colbert would easily be the baddest boy in the whole school with the contents of his brown-bagged lunch: Thin Mints, ribs and a hand-written note to himself, written by himself.

Watch the video below, and prepare to be BFFs with Colbert come September 8:
