'The Colbert Report'Every year, Halloween comes under assault, but this new environmental-friendly notion of costume swapping is taking it too far. Stephen Colbert took to the airwaves on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central) to decry the besmirching of this noblest of holidays.

"Environmentalism goes against everything Halloween stands for," he said. "Rampant consumerism and waste."

He then gave a poignant and beautiful analogy of the life cycle of a tree, comparing Halloween to "clear-cutting a forest, pulping the trees into lush three-ply toilet paper ... and, as a heartless final insult, [hurling] them at their still living cousins."
