Watch Stephen Colbert to Debate Whether Bigfoot Would Beat the Tooth Fairy in a Fight

“Classical mythical match-up that’s been debated for centuries”

Stephen Colbert brought comedian John Hodgman on The Late Show to discuss a “classical mythical match-up that’s been debated for centuries”: Bigfoot vs. the Tooth Fairy.

As Hodgman said, it’s perfect that he’s here for the latest installment of “Friday Night Fights,” Colbert’s series of Twitter polls. “I host the Judge John Hodgman podcast…People call in with disputes, I tell them who’s right and who’s wrong.”

In this case, he claims he’s right and Colbert is wrong: the Tooth Fairy can take Bigfoot any day. Watch his compelling argument in the video above and vote in Colbert’s poll below.

Elsewhere, the pair discussed whether an Apple Genius with a switchblade could best a Walmart greeter with a crossbow. Hodgman is somewhat biased due to his past commercial work for Apple, but he still sided with the long-range weapon.
