Everyone's favorite fake conservative political pundit, Stephen Colbert, is feeling the love.
The Colbert Report won the highly regarded Peabody Award on Wednesday for excellence in television broadcasting.
The administrators of the award explained the reasons why Colbert won, saying:

Stephen Colbert's alma mater, Northwestern University, will be giving the Colbert Report host an honorary degree during the school's commencement on June 17.
Other folks who have received such an honor from Northwestern include computer science expert Barbar Liskov, death penalty/international criminal law scholar William Schabas, and opera singer Jessye Norman.
Those OTHER recipients may have some pret-ty impressive sounding jobs….but did any of them write, produce, AND star in Strangers with Candy? Didn't think so!
Congratulations, Stephen! We're happy for you!
Do U think Stephen Colbert deserves an honorary degree?

Oh man! A mini-Strangers With Candy reunion!
Our heart just skipped a beat!
Seriously - we don't know what the hell this, but check out Funny Or Die's latest 'commercial' for Chipotle (above), which also features Amy Sedaris proving once again that she's pretty much the best person on the planet!
And we love that her former Strangers co-star Paul Dinello is around for the LOLz, too!
Too bad they couldn't get Stephen Colbert, though!
C'mon guys, it's time for a reunion! Please and thank you!
