Made an icon from Earl's "Better Know A District" segment--the quotation is one of Colbert's lines from the interview--and like all the products of my mediocre dabblings in image editing, it's free to a good home if anyone else is weird enough to want to use it.

The Beginner
(Kipling)

On the first hour of my first day
In the front trench I fell.
(Children in boxes at a play
Stand up to watch it well.)

Rudyard Kipling, Epitaphs of the War, 1914-1918:

My son was killed while laughing at some jest. I would I knew
What it was, and it might serve me in a time when jests are few.
