Here it is: Oxford American Editor Roger Hodge on The Colbert Report

  • Oxford American Editor Roger Hodge was on The Colbert Report last night.

Oxford American Editor Roger Hodge was on The Colbert Report last night, chatting with host Stephen Colbert about Southern culture, barbecue, music (Louisiana is "in some ways the most musical state in the union," Hodge said) and whether Texas — Hodge's home state — is part of the south.

In the battle of wits that is every guest segment on the show, Hodge struck first.

"I'm a southern boy," Colbert said. "I'm from Charleston, S.C."

"Which is kind of north, from where we sit," Hodge replied. The audience didn't seem to agree. "Ooooh..." a bunch of them said.

"Sir, all roads lead north from Charleston," Colbert said.

Hodge disclosed that he's from Del Rio, Texas, which allowed Colbert to get in perhaps the best dig of the night: "Listen, I don't mean to burst your bubble. Texas is a great place, OK? But if you're from the real South, Texas is Texas. Ask someone from Texas and they'll tell you, 'I'm from Texas.' They're not going to say, 'I'm from the South.'"

Hodge seemed to concede this, at which point Colbert said, "I accept your apology."

Colbert went on to correctly identify beef barbecue ribs as "an abomination."

"God meant us to slow smoke pig," he said.

You can watch the whole segment after the jump.
