(Newser) – OK, we're not gonna pretend this one actually has much news value, but there's something to be said for watching Stephen Colbert shimmy and shake his way out of his boxers and toss them in the microwave. Colbert nuked the drawers as a symbolic "protest" over the "End of Men" story in the latest Atlantic Monthly. Colbert called his boxers the "symbol of male oppression," saying guys only wear them because "the matriarchy says we need them in case we get hit by a bus."
