While many are excited that Thanksgiving is falling on the first day of Hanukkah this year, Stephen Colbert’s conservative alter ego is terrified.

“How dare you Hanukkah?” Colbert said last night on “The Colbert Report,” pointing out that these two holidays have zero connection. “Hanukkah celebrates the struggle of an oppressed people’s fight against invading conquerors, while Thanksgiving is about our healthy and nurturing relationship with the Indians.”

It gets even better when he attempts to draw a hand menorah with a mouth-held Sharpie, and even better than that when he breaks from his character, cracking up over the fact that his effort to create a menorah has resulted in a Hitler mustache.

Funny stuff.
