Host Stephen Colbert's "Late Show," in order to prove just how boring this Republican National Convention has been, live-streamed on Monday the condiment station at the Quicken Loans Arena.

"Half-a-million people watched delegates put ketchup on their hot dogs," Colbert said. "Proving what we already knew — the Republican party is a bit of a sausage fest."

A surreal highlight of the two-hour stream came in the final minutes, when Fox News host Bret Baier filled a plastic water bottle with mustard.

"Why is Brett Baier hoarding mustard? What does he know that we don't know? I can't judge the man; we report, you decide," Colbert said, calling this "the biggest condiment scandal to come out of Fox News since Roger Ailes was caught spanking the bottom of a ketchup bottle."
