The Late Show host shows the endless possibilities of cake toppers available to those who don't really understand what marriage equality means.

Leave it to Stephen Colbert to explain how ludicrous people's fears about the legalization of same-sex marriage truly are.

"I think everyone should be able to love whoever they want," Colbert told his Late Show audience Friday night.

And in talking about the Supreme Court ruling that guaranteed marriage equality in all 50 states, Colbert addressed the claim of Iowa congressman Steve King: "You could marry your lawnmower with this decision."

Colbert said he is worried, "Who's going to provide party planning for Steve King's nightmare marriage scenarios?" And with a dramatic pause, answered his own question: "I will."

He dubbed the segment: "Stephen Colbert's All-Inclusive Wedding Cake Toppers."

The host dug under his desk for props to demonstrate the variety of cake toppers available for nearly any wedding, from same-sex marriages to weddings featuring men and ghosts, box turtles, 15 babies in top hats, Dora the Explorer and the Eiffel Tower and, of course, Rep. Steve King and his lawnmower.

But as The Advocate previously reported, it's actually not possible to marry a lawnmower.
