Watch Colbert Wag Finger at OKRA Charity Saloon

Last night on the Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert wagged his finger at The Original OKRA Charity Saloon. Citing the recent New York Times story about a "Houston bar that gives a patrons a vote as to which charity should receive that month's profits," Colbert expresses concern that drunk donating could lead to unintended consequences. Specifically, "there will be fewer votes for UNICEF and more for the 'Man I Could Really Go For a Gyro Foundation.'" It's all done with the usual truthiness.
