R.I.P. Conan’s Beard

05.03.11 6 years ago 15 Comments

The last time Conan O’Brien appeared on TV without a beard, he was playing rhythm guitar while Will Ferrell sang “Freebird” to close out O’Brien’s final “Tonight Show.” On last night’s “Conan,” Ferrell appeared on the TBS show for the first time, and made a big to-do about getting rid of the host’s whiskers (video below).

It would have been a cute little story for Tuesday morning if the show hadn’t been taped in the wake of Osama Bin Laden’s death. Trying to care about some TV host’s beard when America’s #1 enemy for the last decade has just been killed is too frivolous even for me, and I LOVE frivolous bullsh*t. I mean, this is a TV blog that focuses on dogs wearing sunglasses half the time because Hollywood industry news isn’t frivolous enough. I am an expert in things that don’t matter, and this really takes the cake.
