Goodbye From Conan’s “Intellectual Property”
(Pimp Bot 500, Masturbating Bear, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog)

So…Conan’s final Tonight Show aired. It left a weird taste in my mouth, kind of like a doughnut….I liked it but it gave me heartburn!

It was funny, Steve Carell from The Office came on and did a fake exit interview; Tom Hanks came on and taunted him with the nick-name he came up with, Coco. Neil Young performed a very sad song, which I could have gone without but people love that old hippie. And of course, Will Farrell (with Beck and ZZ Top!?!) came on and played Free Bird with Conan. VERY fitting.

Conan then gave a very classy and touching speech. If you have not heard it, here you are:

He is such a humble, classy guy. I am glad that he really appreciates all of his fans and realizes how loved he is by, at least my generation. And on that note it was nice that he took a minute to tell us not to be cynical. I can’t imagine how hard it is for him to not be a cynic at a time like this, but that just shows how awesome he is. I think that it was a good thing to say to my age group especially because I feel like most of us are cynical. It’s hard not to be but to have someone who just got screwed in front of the entire nation, on TV no less, tell you not to by cynical really made me think about it.

I typically think people, for the most part, are stinky butt holes who don’t care at all about others, but that largely has to do with where I work and the stinky butt holes I’ve had the misfortune of dating. But to hear Conan say look on the bright side after the hell he just went through really made me think that might be a nice thing to try, to not be cynical, well, not so cynical.

For any younger people who do not understand where the title of this blog came from, it’s a song (and no the song did not come from LA Confidential, it was used in it):
FACT:  Johnny Carson died on 1/23/2005. Conan’s final Tonight Show aired 1/23/2010….hmmm.
