Colbert Christmas Special: John Legend Sings For His Nutmeg

You know, my kids really love those old Rankin Bass stop action Christmas specials and look forward to watching them immediately after Thanksgiving. But I now have my own favorite Christmas special, thanks to Stephen Colbert and Comedy Central.

I had hoped to find a clip of Willie Nelson as the fourth Wise Man singing about his gift to the baby Jesus of a little pot, but John Legend singing about needing nutmeg was pretty damn funny too.

Serving eggnog without nutmeg is like serving turkey without a duck and a chicken inside it.

Words to live by. More clips over at Colbert Nation. Don't miss Jon Stewart trying to interest Colbert on the Festival of Lights.
