Stephen Colbert Jokes That U.S. Aid to Egypt Is Reason We Haven't Been Attacked by Mummies (VIDEO)

The billions of American taxpayers' dollars that's spent annually on foreign aid can be a sore subject with the general public. However, on 'The Colbert Report' (weekdays, 11:30 ET on Comedy Central), Stephen was able to find a silver lining behind all the money we've sent to Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak's embattled regime.

"Mubarak is our friend. And we know Mubarak is our friend because we pay him to like us. Specifically, we pay him $1.3 billion a year," Colbert explained, as his audience groaned.

"But folks, listen up, that money buys us security," he continued. "We haven't had a single mummy attack on US soil!"

We ran Colbert's claim of no mummy attacks by our crack team of researchers, who were able to confirm that it is 100% accurate.
