The saga of Conan and David Letterman’s horse gift has possibly come to an end after a late night back-and-forth between the two hosts. As we’ve detailed in prior posts, Conan penned a wonderful goodbye to Letterman when The Late Show host was retiring, prompting Letterman to send Conan a gift in return for thanks — and jokes, as we are well aware now.
Letterman had a horse delivered to Conan at the Warner Bros. lot, hoping that he would take it on his show and the horse would poo on the stage. At least that’s what he told Jimmy Kimmel earlier in the week after watching Conan’s appearance with Stephen Colbert. Conan spent most of that interview complaining about this horse, how it was costing a lot of money, was too crazy to ride, and was then living it up in some horse massage camp. It was funny, Letterman’s response was funny, and the entire situation was a funny cross-section of the late night comedy club.
And then the folks at Conan posted the clip above during the show’s time off due to the MLB playoffs, adding another chapter to the horse saga. Not only has the horse now received a beard, similar to the beard shared by Letterman, but it has been snatched from its massage palace to head back to its rental home in the back of a UPS truck. Why not? The shame of it is now Letterman is without a show and can’t keep this going without appearing on Conan’s show.
Hopefully that is what happens.
