Conan tells it better. But, in short: A tee-shirt company in Boston sent Conan a local tee that didn't resonate with his experience of growing up in the Massachusetts capital. So, he complains about it and asks for a more "realistic" one, an outrageous depiction of his actual childhood. Well, the tee-shirt company delivered. They sent him a new tee, effectively knocking it out of, well, Fenway Park! Get yours here. Read the rest
"When they were putting a chip in your brain they sunk it deep, didn’t they?"
With the help of an insider, Conan O'Brien crashed an online strategy meeting for TIBCO Software in Silicon Valley, surprising its attendees.

You may remember that, in Japan, you can rent fake family members to fight loneliness (or for other reasons, like you want your kid to have a "dad").

He told them right from the start that they must laugh at his jokes (his real wife is "tired" of them, he says) and they do, even when it's inappropriate. It's funny, as are the other "Conan Without Borders" videos he and his crew shot in Japan. You can watch them all at the Team Coco website.
