    “We have beautiful golf courses here, Mr. President,” one man says. “Please come cheat on them.” One woman sends a “message of love” to America’s leader: “Oprah, we love you!” O’Brien even found a Norwegian immigrant who lives in Haiti. “I would like to immigrate to the USA,” she says, “after 2020.”

    Late-night host Conan O’Brien has touched down in Haiti, where he’ll be shooting a “Conan” travel special in response to President Trump’s recent disparagement of the country. “Just landed in #Haiti and already made some new friends!” the TBS host tweeted late Thursday, sharing a video of himself interacting with some friendly locals. “Follow me all this weekend in real time as I explore this beautiful country. #ConanHaiti” Twitter Ads info and privacy Over the weekend, O’Brien announced his plans to visit the Caribbean nation because he was still “reeling from @realDonaldTrump’s very negative Yelp review of Haiti.” “I have...

    During the June 13 monologue on Conan, host Conan O’Brien referenced the Orlando terror attack and said no one should be able to own “a semiautomatic rifle.” He described semiautomatic rifles as “weapons of war” that “have no place in civilian life.”
  • Half Of Western European Men Descended From One Bronze Age 'King'

    Telegraph UK ^ | April 25, 2016 | Sarah Knapton, Science Editor
    Half of Western European men are descended from one Bronze Age 'king' who sired a dynasty of elite nobles which spread throughout Europe, a new study has shown. The monarch, who lived around 4,000 years ago, is likely to have been one of the earliest chieftains to take power in the continent... It is likely his power stemmed from advances in technology such as metal working and wheeled transport which enabled organised warfare for the first time. Although it is not known who he was, or where he lived, scientists say he must have existed because of genetic variation in...

    3RD UPDATE – FINAL: (See Conan and Obama videos here and here.) We warned you not to expect much from tonight’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. And true to form it failed to deliver. Bland to a fault Conan O’Brien didn’t lay a glove on celebrity-in-chief Barack Obama. (Bring back Seth Meyers…) But the President got an easy laugh with a showbiz joke that couldn’t have made Comcast too happy. (He noted that, of 22 recent basketball shots, he had 2 hits and 20 misses. “The executives at NBC asked, ‘What’s your secret?’” POTUS said.) O’Brien’s best line of the night...
  • Lousy New Obama & Biden Campaign Slogans

    07/31/2012 10:16:08 AM PDT · by Lucky9teen · 13 replies
    Coming up with an effective, catchy campaign slogan is serious business — and seriously difficult. In 2008, Barack Obama‘s campaign found a winner with “Hope and Change,” but they haven’t been able to recreate that fervor four years later. We mean, come on. “Forward”? Zzzzz. Well, on Thursday night, TBS’ Conan O’Brien shared some other… interesting slogans from President Obama and VP Biden. Our personal favorite? “Come on, man. I’m serious.” Biden’s Dirty Harryesque voice really brings it on home, don’t you find?

    UNE 15--For the fourth time in the past two years, a Cincinnati man has been arrested for masturbating in public with the aid of a teddy bear, records show. Charles Marshall, 28, was arrested Wednesday evening after employees at a health clinic spotted him pleasuring himself in an alley. Marshall, pictured in the adjacent mug shot, was cited for disorderly conduct. Municipal Court records show that Marshall has already been convicted three times of engaging in public indecency/disorderly conduct with a teddy bear. The misdemeanor counts resulted in short jail sentences and small fines for Marshall.

    "Groundbreaking." "Memorable." "Big." "Remarkable." "Intimate." [?] "Wonderful." "Great." "History-making." "Go Coco!" The above statements were made by various media outlets upon learning of Conan O'Brien's intention to preside over the wedding of a gay couple during the taping of his show "Conan" in New York this week. O'Brien, who is celebrating his first year at TBS, is back in New York this week (for 16 years his previous show, "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" was filmed in New York City). He announced last week that he was going to officiate a gay wedding because same-sex marriages are now legal in...

    If anybody thought that Stan Lee Media Inc., the company which now operates independently from its comic book legend founder, was gone for good, guess again. On Friday, SLMI made a big move in U.S. District Court in California to grab back rights on the fictional character Conan the Barbarian and win proceeds from the just-released Conan the Barbarian 3D film. The new suit comes from SLMI, which has had a rocky history since being founded by Stan Lee in the late 1990s. Initially, the company looked to be on its way towards success after Lee assigned SLMI rights to...

    TBS's pricey Conan O'Brien experiment is flopping—and is about to get even more expensive. When the cable network hired Mr. O'Brien for more than $12 million per year in 2010, TBS executives hailed late night as its "next land of opportunity" and Mr. O'Brien as the "building block" to a network-wide revival. In the nine months since "Conan"'s debut, TBS has canceled its only other late-night show, George Lopez's "Lopez Tonight," and viewership of "Conan" has tumbled, by about 60% since its high-profile debut last fall. Despite Mr. O'Brien's shrinking audience, TBS is doubling down on the red-haired comedian, paying...

    "I live. I love. I slay…I am content." - Conan The Barbarian The most legendary Barbarian of all time is back this Summer. Having thrived and evolved for eight consecutive decades in the public imagination- in prose and graphics, on the big screen and small, in games and properties of all kinds- Conan's exploits in the Hyborian Age now come alive like never before in a colossal 3D action-adventure film. A quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce Cimmerian warrior soon turns into an epic battle against hulking rivals, horrific monsters, and impossible odds, as Conan realizes...

    Once upon a time there was widespread concern that America’s late-night TV comedians, who fuel and reflect so much of popular culture’s chatter, would shy away from making fun of the Smoker-in-Chief because, well, you know. As someone who collects these passing smiles, we can report that is not the case. Here are a few recent offerings: Letterman: Vice President Joe Bidens birthday party was over the weekend. President Obama was so excited he asked Biden to attend in his place. Leno: Happy Birthday to Joe Biden. President Obama got him a gag gift. No, not a funny gift. A...

    WND ^ | November 9, 2010
    Comedian Conan O'Brien says perhaps Barack Obama is qualified to drive a cab in New York City. The on-screen personality joked about Obama's eligibility to be president in a promotional video for his new cable television program called "Conan." In a satirical look at his own exit from late-night television, he role-plays a man hunting for a job, including a stint as a fast-food restaurant worker and as a children's party clown. In that persona, he states, "First, they said Obama's a socialist. Then they say he's Muslim. Now they're saying he wasn’t even born in this country. "It's got...
