Talk about a government takeover!

"The Colbert Report" was broadcasting from Washington D.C. on Monday when President Obama appeared on stage to announce that he was stepping in for Stephen Colbert in his segment "The Word."

Since Colbert had take so many shots at his job over the years, he said, he wanted a shot at his. And because he is the president, he naturally changed it to "The Decree."

"Nation, as you know, I, Stephen Colbert, have never cared for our president," Obama says to kick off the piece called "To Health in a Handbasket."

While discussing his health care plan, he made fun of himself in the third person, Republicans and even the "fake news" channel "Fox News."

The Colbert Report is in its final stretch with the last episode to air December 18.

This delicious campaign is the brainchild of Lux Dei Design, a New Jersey-based Christian design firm. The firm's tenuous logic is as follows: church attendance is in decline across the United States, and so churches need to find new ways to attract "clientele." Enter, Big Mac.

One of the many reasons why Martin Luther broke away from the Catholic Church way back in the 16th century to form Protestantism was because he disagreed with a common practice which he called the "sale of indulgences." People could sin as much as they wanted, then just simply pay a priest some money and all would be forgiven in the eyes of God.

I wonder what he would think of the literal sale of indulgent burgers these days...

Also, never has this pairing of billboards been more relevant:
