James Joyce at the Olympics

From The Examiner:

Stephen [Colbert] made visits to a few international houses full of visitors from various countries supporting their teams. After pissing off a Swiss guy for implying that his main language was really just German, Colbert challenged him to a game of Fondue Pong, a variation of Beer Pong, but the loser had to drink a bowl of crazy hot cheese instead. At the Russia house, he played, and won, a game of table hockey. The best moment was when he was at the Irish house. He asked the crowd, “Who wants to celebrate Irish culture?” Then he proceeded to read James Joyce’s Ulysses to a miffed, befuddled audience. Boos and booze were prominent.
