I enjoy watching the Colbert Report. I recently located this clip from the show containing a gravitas competition between Stone Phillips and Stephen Colbert. The competition revolved around who could display the most gravitas when reading bizarre news headlines. Well, there has been a re-match, so here is clip 2. Thanks to the website onegoodmove for posting the videos. I wonder if any of my students ever feel that they are forced to assume the gravitas tone exhibited in these clips when representing their clients.
