Colbert Struggles With NYC Soda Ban, Conan Offers Alternatives

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's proposed ban on high-capacity drink containers has caused ripples and repercussions he could never have imagined, including the effect on law-abiding citizens like comedian Stephen Colbert.

Could Bloomburg not see the unintended consequences of this ban in nearby Jersey City? Granted, with the economy like it is, I'm sure the nearby Insulin Barn will receive a much-needed bump in walk-in sales now that it will have a Johnny Slurps Sodateria next door.

Late-night TV host Conan O'Brein reports one entrepreneur's attempt to help New York City resident circumvent the ban.
