Colbert's New York Post Hooker Headline Parodies

Editorial Director

The New York Post managed to out-New York Post headline itself yesterday with its stock market/”hooker’s drawers” comparison. This did not go unnoticed by one Mr. Stephen Colbert, who opened last night’s Colbert Report providing “hooker’s drawers” context for those of us not as familiar with “hooker’s drawers” references as Post readers. He then went on to provide a few fabulous suggestions for future headlines where the Post could put the universal “hooker’s drawers” analogy to work.

Video above (obviously), original headline below, screengrabs of the parodies after the jump. I have to say the London one is my favorite, primarily because I think the British welcome a good “hooker’s drawers” reference. Somalian refugees, not so much.
