As Stephen Colbert continues to adjust to his move from Comedy Central to CBS, one thing he has to now deal with are the total nonsense rules of the network censors. As Colbert found when he wanted to talk about the famous painting, Nu Couché, which recently sold for $1.7 million, those rules are strict, arbitrary, and totally silly. You can’t show women’s swimsuit areas, but you can show a close-up O’Keefe. You can maybe show something Picasso drew that definitely looks like nipples, but how can we be sure? You can show Michelangelo’s David, but only from far away and hope the audience blinks and misses it.

And then there’s my favorite, in which Colbert is basically straight-up trolling the censors, where he shows the difference a couple of sharpie lines make. (As beautifully GIF’d by Vulture.)
