Dr. Greger's Hedgehog Humor

Dr. Greger appears on Colbert giving his expert opinion—on hedgehogs.

He’s wearing a white lab coat and glasses, sitting proudly in front of The Humane Society of the United States logo, but Dr. Greger’s appearance on The Colbert Show is not nearly as serious as it sounds. Sure, he’s offering his medical opinion, but the topic is not vegetarianism or nutrition, but rather hedgehogs and the health threats they may or may not pose to the rural community of Lawrence, Kansas. Despite the fact that he’s being called on as an expert, you can always count on Dr. Greger for a dose of humor, and this little segment does not disappoint. Hats off to him for proving that vegetarians do have a sense of humor.
