I keep suspecting this is all just a massive scam on NBC's part to boost ratings, but if it's real it's funny as hell.
THA SUGAH RAIN
Well NBC owns the rights for the video and music he has played, and its a blatant lie that he bought that horse, so draw your own conclusions I guess.

I hope this late night television hijinx never ends.

No "also his balls are huge" tag?
ShiftlessRastus
As I previously pointed out, all Conan clips should contain the "Also his balls are rouge" tag.

MaulLove
How the fuck did I not realize that? I loved that tag.

Meerkat
yeah real funny kill how many minks for laughs ha ha ha ha oh god i'm rollin on the floor here
MaulLove
You can't possibly believe this is intended to look anything like real mink, so I'm going to assume you just thought the entire skit was unfunny.

Hooker
Those minks probably had earmites.

zatojones
Don't laugh until I tell you the real punchline:

Those minks were beaten to death with baby harp seals.

oogaBooga
what the fuck has a mink ever done for me

Meerkat
Well it's OK if they had earmites, because those things spread like wildfire and soon you have a giant raft of earmites in the pacific ocean feeding on the great garbage bioform and infecting unwary telephone sanitizers.

Nigga please. He's walking away with million I'm sure he'll be fine.

nbc will pass on the money they lose on this to the consumer.

they will cancel 30 rock just to spite me personally.
Redlof
This is one of those things that starts out really stupid when you first see it, and then 10 years later when you're describing it to somebody else it suddenly becomes the funniest thing in the world.

Fortunately, I've got enough foresight to rate it five stars now.
snothouse
Come ON. The horse watching restricted footage is pretty great.

dueserpenti
The one-star votes for this video are the most bafflingly retarded things I have ever seen.
abeli$con
you realize that conan is getting fired because he sucks right?

snothouse
Can we all agree that abeli$%%^whatever's days here are numbered?

Scrotum H. Vainglorious
An easy five if the horse exploded but it didn't so there!

Desidiosus
You realize your mom got fired for the same reason?

Late night talk show hosts milking a joke for weeks? What is this world coming to?

positively
People who change their fb photos to celebrities they are obsessed with are fucking losers

CornOnTheCabre
i saw the horse thing at work and laughed WAY too hard.

then again I haven't been watching The Tonight Show lately.

Conan's problem is that he's only funny to people that don't watch late night talk shows. those people being anyone who isn't a complete retard.

goddamn I love wikipedia editors

Tonight Show "Appearance"

I'm trying to rework the "In Popular Culture" section to make clear that the "purchase" of Mine That Bird was just a gag. Aside from the premise being preposterous, the horse on the show (which was a chestnut with a big star) was obviously not Mine That Bird (a bay with a tiny star). If someone else can do a better job of reworking this section, please do so. Brock256 (talk) 06:32, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

I wouldn't be so quick; various news souces (including CBS News; see first link below) have reported the appearance with no indication it was inauthentic [1] [2] [3]. Thoroughbred Times hedged a bit [4], basing their doubt on the horse's coloring, but the horse on the show certainly appeared to me to look like the horse pictured in the second link above. There's no suggestion of the horse not being Mine That Bird in the New York Magazine page linked from the article. In the absence of actual evidence that the horse was different, we can't discount the possibility simply because it seems preposterous. MisfitToys (talk) 21:19, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

The CBS News source merely reports O'Brien's claim, without comment on its veracity (other than noting that O'Brien is "comically" vowing to spend these amounts of money, which should be a clue). Thaindian is not a reputable source. MTV News and NY Magazine's entertainment blog did report it as straight news, which is sad, but Thoroughbred Times makes the obvious problems with O'Brien's claim very clear in the article you cite. If you want to remove the claim (which is obviously and assuredly true) that the horse on the show was a different animal based on lack of a source, that's one thing, but the article should not report as fact that the horse was Mine That Bird. The only source for the claim that the real Mine That Bird appeared on The Tonight Show is the quoted claim of a comedian in the midst of a joke, and the encyclopedia should reflect that.

I understand that facts on Wikipedia must be sourced, but I can tell you right now that the horse on The Tonight Show no more resembled Mine That Bird than Pee Wee Herman resembles Robin Williams. I'm not trying to be snarky here, but it really is that obvious.Brock256 (talk) 02:05, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

AND ADD THAT IT WASN'T A REAL MINK SNUGGIE!

Lauritz Melchior
Could somebody explain in a sarcastic and insulting manner what restricted NFL footage is? Why is it restricted? Please, future insulter, I'm too lazy to look it up myself.
