After the real Colbert brought back his Colbert Report character “Stephen Colbert” in a recent episode of The Late Show, CBS was contacted by the “top lawyer from another company” (likely Viacom, the company that owns Comedy Central, the channel that aired The Colbert Report) to say that the use of the character violated intellectual property law.

Basically, they like to eat what they’ve been accustomed to eating since before humans started making cheese around 10,000 years ago. So how did the myth that mice liked cheese get started? Nobody knows. It’s been around for a long time…
