Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

From the "In case you missed it" file: On Thursday's hilarious "Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger" segment, viewable below, The Colbert Report's Stephen Colbert weighed in on the fact that no students have signed up to live in CU-Boulder housing that allows guns -- a story our Sam Levin first reported in August. Of course, Colbert is critical of this situation, reminding enrollees that college is "time to get crazy: do shots, take shots, get shot."

But a wag of the finger for Colbert's reference to "U of C students." It's CU, pal -- or CU later.

Here's the video. The CU guns item is the second in the clip.
