Colbert Report Takes on Beast Jesus Master

by Hrag Vartanian on September 21, 2012

The tragic/demented/whatever-it-is story of Cecilia Gimenez has entered a new phases of its pop culture notoriety when last night Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report took on the Spanish restoration “master.”

She showed a “can-do attitude about things she clearly cannot do,” he says in the segment. “You could say my kid could paint that, but not if your kid had seen a human face.”

Though the joke about the upcoming Dan Brown novel (pictured left) might be my favorite.

Thank you, Colbert!
