Video: Kristen Schaal does Daily Show bit about growing up in Colorado

Last night, Comedy Central aired a repeat of the July 1 Daily Show that included a segment with comedian Kristen Schaal (whom you might recognize from her role as obsessive fan Mel on Flight of the Conchords) about efforts in France to ban Muslim women from wearing burkas.

Schaal, who grew up on a farm in Longmont, included a joke about how birds in Colorado often mistook her for a scarecrow and built nests in her mouth.

"That was a dark time," she mutters.

Finally, someone is telling the truth about the long-ignored epidemic of Bird Nest Mouth Flu in Colorado!
