On Sunday night in Baghdad, President Obama ordered Gen. Ray Odierno, the commander of the American troops in Baghdad, to shave Stephen Colbert’s head.

If you think that’s a joke, it’s not. The order was actually given by Obama and Stephen Colbert actually did end up with a military hairdo at the end of the day. If you haven’t heard, Colbert is in Baghdad filming four segments of The Colbert Report. As you can see in the image above, his desk/set consists of sandbags painted in the colors of the American flag. Haha, this is great!
