This is quite hilarious. Colbert had one of the best set-ups he could probably hope for from the president of the United Mine Workers Association, Cecil Roberts, who aptly compared the coal industry to a well-known killer. Of course, Colbert could easily take it from there and add to the humor of the matter.
The intro and the segment that followed were both hilarious, too. Enjoy the video above or on Colbert Nation.
