On Friday’s edition of “The Late Show”, host Stephen Colbert had “an inspirational story from north of the border” to share with viewers.
Colbert runs down the true tale, in which four would-be thieves, wearing masks and armed with canisters of bear spray, entered an Ontario pot dispensary.
“That’s how Canadian this story is,” quips Colbert. “The robbers thought there was a chance the store was run by a bear.”
The store’s employee, however, fought back, “using the closest weapon at hand: a bong,” he added.
After showing closed-circuit footage of the bong-bearing employee chasing off his would-be assailants, Colbert joked, “There is an easier way to knock someone out with a bong: use it.”
