Stephen Colbert feels my pain about the lime shortage. Spring is here and the warm weather brings a craving for gin cocktails, like gin and tonic or my favorite cocktail – the gin gimlet, that just beg for some fresh lime.

As always, Colbert explains the reasons behind this news story and puts his comedic spin on it so you learn a little and laugh a lot.

I laughed out loud at the Bud Lite Lime joke. Finally, the real reason why the drink is so nasty tasting.
