Stephen Colbert Just Revealed How He Hid His Bong From His Mom

Comedian Stephen Colbert, who rose to fame by mocking political spin on 'The Daily Show' and 'The Colbert Report,' has always had a knack for manipulating the truth — at least when it's come to hiding his cannabis use. During last night's 'Late Show' monologue, Colbert revealed how he hid his bong from his mom using semantics.

The monologue took aim at the hypocrisy of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms over their position on "bump stocks" — gun accessories that turn semi-automatic weapons into automatics, which is exactly how the Las Vegas shooter was able to gun down so many people in a short period of time last Sunday. According to the ATF, bumper stocks aren't subject to gun regulation because they are part of a gun, not a gun itself.

So Colbert mocked that rhetorical smokescreen with a weed analogy. "[It's] like when your parents find your bong and you tell them, 'Hey, there's no weed in there now. So technically, that is a vase. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some Pink Floyd to listen to. May I have my vase back?'"

And it turns out he wasn't spitballing that analogy on the spot. "That's based on a true story," he told the audience. "My mom didn't know."
