Play of the Day: Welcome to Citadel, Idaho

While Jon Stewart weighed in on the gun-control debate on Tuesday night, Stephen Colbert addressed it last night by introducing his viewers to Citadel, a "walled and armed community with up to 7,000 families living on about 3,000 acres in the moutains of Idaho, not to be confused with the armed community of 1.5 million people in the moutains of Idaho called ... Idaho."

Residents of Citadel will not have to recycle and must pass a variety of firearms proficiency tests annually. 

Jimmy Fallon also lampooned President Obama for offering "special perks" to those who donate at least $1 million to the upcoming inauguration. You know what else gets you perks, Fallon said, "keeping that $1 million."

For today's must-see moment, fast forward to 2:40 to see Colbert explain the Citadel's resident application questionnaire.
