That really was hilarious! Colbert's Spanish isn't too bad for the most part even. He could use some work on his phonetics, but he did quite well. I chuckled at one point when the subtitles translated his reference to the middle class getting squashed in between the upper and lower classes as being crushed like grapes. He actually said smashed like flies, but the imagery works either way.
