Stephen Colbert's "Beautiful" Wax Figure Unveiled at Madam Tussauds

Top satiricist and all-round funny guy Stephen Colbert has been to Washington to unveil his waxen twin, reports the Washington Post. 

Washington's Madam Tussauds has been undergoing a big refurbishment, retailoring their media room, and they've now recreated The Colbert Report's set, with Colbert's wax figure sitting centre stage, as he does on his satirical show. Never losing his comedic streak, he said "I'm honored to be standing here next to my Man-Crayon... I learned this from the Madame Tussauds people just a minute ago - that on the color wheel, my skin tone is Semi-Gloss Romney Voter." 

"I want to thank everyone at Madame Tussauds for the honor of becoming the latest Waxican American, because being cast in wax is true immortality - as long as the earth is not in any way getting warmer," he continued. "So without further ado, I present you all...the greatest American figurine since the Ken doll. And unlike Ken, this one is anatomically accurate." 

When the curtain was moved aside to reveal his replica, Colbert gushed, "I'm so beautiful!" before attempting to lick himself... his wax self. But was told by Tussauds' staff that licking the wax figures was strictly prohibited.
