Fierce Five 'intern' on 'The Colbert Report'

The U.S. women's gymnastics team continues to take New York by storm and appeared as "interns" on "The Colbert Report" Wednesday night.

Host Stephen Colbert said he hired a new group of interns, who were "five bright women who just returned from study abroad in London."

When Colbert said he needed a pen, the Fierce Five— Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber, Kyla Ross, Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney— appeared as the interns and got a Sharpie to him as only they could.  Each athlete tumbled around the stage passing the marker to each other before Wieber handed it to the host with her foot while walking on her hands.


As the five waved goodbye to the audience, Maroney could be seen making the not impressed expression which has now become one of the most popular memes on the Internet.

The team has been barnstorming the talk shows and hitting all the sights in Manhattan while making public appearances.  Let's see now... there's only Ellen and Jimmy Fallon left, if I am correct.
