There’s nothing Bwog loves more than to wake up to a boner joke. Aren’t you glad we said “joke” at the end of that?

Anyway, Columbia’s very own superstar Professor Eric Foner stopped by The Colbert Report again (!) to discuss his new book “The Fiery Trial.” But before he even began to share his expertise on Abraham Lincoln and American slavery, Foner was asked a pressing (ha) question by Colbert:

“Does he know his name rhymes with boner?”
