Stephen Colbert Calls Out Smug Vegetarians In The Best Way

You just got served, vegetarians, and we're not talking about tofu dogs.

With recent studies finding processed meats like bacon may be a cause of cancer, some people (ahem, vegetarians) have started using the hashtag #SmugVegetarian to call out their meat-eating brethren. Well, Colbert, who proudly claims to have a two-pound slab of bacon in his fridge at all times, isn't having it.

The "Late Show" host called out #SmugVegetarians, saying the hashtag is redundant and adding that refraining from eating things like shrimp doesn't make sense because corn has more coherent thoughts than shrimp do.

“Have you ever had a conversation with a shrimp? It’s almost as boring as talking to a vegetarian," joked Colbert.

And, just to make sure veggie eaters got the message, Colbert pointed out how studies found that 10 percent of vegetarian hot dogs contain meat and two-thirds contain human DNA. So chew on that, vegetarians! Or, actually don't. That sounds gross.

"The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.
