Stephen Colbert Fails Miserably At High Tea (VIDEO)

Tea on 'The Colbert Report'In honor of Kate Middleton and Prince William's upcoming wedding, Stephen Colbert got lessons in English table manners on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central) from royal expert Hugo Vickers.

The two sat down to a proper English table setting for tea and biscuits. As one could imagine, things digressed rather quickly.

Colbert gargled his tea, like he was tasting wine. He also spit, stirred sloppily, held his tea cup wrong, and at one point drank the cream on the table straight out of its jar.

"You're just doing everything wrong," Vickers admonished.

By the end of the session Colbert had tea drool dripping from his mouth. "By this stage you'd been sent up to the nursery," Vickers concluded.

It was one of those Colbert segments in which even though his "victim" was probably in on the joke, he was still bit shocked at how far Colbert took it.

Could someone please explain to me how a thread has a negative number of comments? This particular story showed "-4" comments on tvsquad's main page. At first i thought maybe it meant that four "negative" or thumbed down comments had been left, but upon clicking to show the full story (and any comments) I see that there are no comments (besides this one). WTF?
BtW I'm referring to the area over each story's image on the main page that has like five buttons, i.e. twitter, facebook, # of comments and so on...
