Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert on Tuesday's broadcast of The Colbert Report said gay marriage sounded “delicious.”

Colbert was poking fun at the Iowa-based Christian conservative The Family Leader's anti-gay marriage pledge signed by Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. Both candidates are virulently anti-gay.

The pledge “defends marriage by vowing vigorous opposition to intimate unions which are bigamous, polygamous, polyandrous, same sex, etc.,” Colbert reported on his farcical conservative news show.

“And that etc. is an essential catch-all folks because there's a lot of freaky stuff going on in Iowa. OK. Man on corn. Corn on man. Corn on cob. Butter on corn on cob on man.”

“But I know what you're thinking: 'Steven that sounds delicious,'” he added.

Colbert went on to take a swipe at Bachmann's remark that being gay was “personal bondage.”

“Yes, personal enslavement,” he said, “or personal domination, depending on what role you're playing that night. The important thing is to have a safe word … perhaps Bachmann.”

“You see, Bachmann is sensitive to the pain of slavery because to her clearly everything is slavery. Don't walk signs, that's ambulatory slavery. Fat free cheese, that's just flavor slavery, or flavery,” he added.
