Stephen Colbert may have won NASA's poll to rename a module on the International Space Station, but NASA doesn't really want to go through with it. Instead, they might just name a toilet after him.

Despite beating out Serenity by more than 40,000 votes, NASA still has the right to choose the name on its own, and Colbert might just not have the, well, gravitas necessary for the job. But hey, he still gets something! They're talking about possibly naming the new toilet being delivered to the station "Colbert," so at least something up there will get his name, even if it's just where the astronauts go to drop a deuce.

For me, Colbert, Jon Stewart, even the guys behind South Park. They gave me a good laugh in a hard time. They helped me have hope that sanity was a sharp sword piercing the murky veil of nihilistic greed and blind hate.

Colbert is a fitting name for the module. In an insane time, the moniker of a man mocking the insane is insane enough to be appropriate. :-D
