Stephen Colbert takes on what has to be the issue plaguing out nation's teens the most these days. No, it's not bullying, budget cuts, or teen pregnancy.
According to a KPHO Phoenix news story, teens are soaking tampons in vodka and shoving them into whatever available orifice they can find. How do we know this is true?
