For burgeoning young journalists worried about the oft-predicted death of newspapers, Stephen Colbert has some career advice: Go where they don't know print is dying. His choice du jour: Mongolia. Cosmopolitan magazine launched its flagship women's magazine in Mongolia. This will be the 61st foreign edition. Colbert had a field day with the possible story ideas for the magazine. A few writers started a gag on Twitter called #MongolianCosmoCovers. Jacob Weisberg at Slate offered up, "How to please your Hun." While Evan Hughes suggested, "Breaking Through the Great Wall to His Heart."

Obviously, Mr. Colbert hasn't rolled along the sidewalks of Ulan Bator lately, where the women are beautiful and the heels are as high as the steppes are low.

Mongolia has the most beautiful women in the world. Colbert’s asinine humor is not going to change that.
