Still coming down from the high delivered by his ice cream’s cameo during the penultimate episode of Breaking Bad, Stephen Colbert found the perfect opportunity to draw way-too-perfect parallels between the shuttering U.S. government and Vince Gilligan’s iconic television program on The Colbert Report.

Check out the brilliant ‘Breaking Gov’ segment below, in which Colbert paints the government as a once sympathetic character that transformed into an egotistical, self-destructive maniac in a matter of just 237 seasons.
