Bluenose Bowdlerizer: Colbert praises the efforts of censors and claims that contrary to some prevalent opinions, censorship encourages creativity. For example, writing "Flip you, codbucket" takes more imagination than the more obvious, profane alternative.
Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs: To be the World's Strongest Man, Colbert lists a mule, Rodin's The Thinker, and "Rodin's The Thinker riding a mule" as what you need to lift.
Camp Straight: Austin, the former homosexual from one of the "Stephen Speaks For Me" sections.
Cluster F-Bomb: The Guy Sitting Next To You At The Stadium. And wouldn't you know it, he's in two "Stephen Speaks For Me" sections.
Department of Redundancy Department: The Fun Zone for Hollywood has the same answer for Leonardo DiCaprio, Rosie O'Donnell, Sheryl Crow and Alec Baldwin: d. "Hey! Look at me!" Also, most editions say "from the author of I Am America (And So Can You!)" at the top.
Dirty Communists: Mort Sinclair, the communist TV writer from one of the "Stephen Speaks For Me" segments.
Eagleland: Apparently, just opening the book's front cover will make you 25% more American.
Godwin's Law: Done with people other than Hitler. For example, he calls women's rights activists "Femin-Idi-Amins".
WANING! Several reportages of illegal produced issues of this book from Glorious People Republic of China stealing into bookstores. Do not! Buy only likely copies only authorized STEPHEN COLBERT'S I AM AMERICA AND SO ARE YOU books like this one itself!
—Yours, U.S.A. Publisher
Killed Mid-Sentence: Gil Honeycomb, the oldest man in the world, suffers a fatal heart attack in the middle of his "Stephen Speaks For Me" segment.
Mistaken for Racist: Colbert, in one of his recollections. He likes to remind everyone that he doesn't see race (unless Mexican immigrants are involved).
Mr. Seahorse: The species itself is mentioned in the chapter on Sex.
Never Say "Die": His parents' use of this trope has led Stephen to believe that his childhood dog, Shasta, was living on a big farm upstate. He insists that his current dog is so much better, and will be with him forever, unlike Shasta and his grandfather.
Once an Episode: Every chapter ends with a segment called "Stephen Speaks For Me", a short passage from some character who more or less agrees with Colbert's beliefs.
Product Placement: Colbert sells the naming rights to the chapter on sports... three times.
Averted: In that same chapter, he mentions digital video recorders by the generic name because, as he lampshades, Tivo didn't pay for the chapter's naming rights.
