Farewell Conan!

Sure, he's responsible for unsavory (but hilarious!) characters such as Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Robot on a Toilet, Vomiting Kermit, and who could forget, the Masterbating Bear. But even after a harsh break-up with NBC, Conan O'Brien ended his show with sincerity and class. His final words on the show were what I wanted to focus on. He addressed the younger fans of his show. He told them not to be cynical even if life doesn't turn out they way they wanted it to. And, my favorite part was when he said if you are hard working and kind, amazing things will happen. So true, so true! We can't all be famous or wealthy or beautiful models and blaming everyone for that loss is just ridiculous and serves no one. Having a family can be amazing. Having good friends can be amazing. Having love, trust, joy, and purpose in your life can be amazing. Way to stand up for the good guy! Thanks for the laughs, Conan! I've been with you since your 5th year on Late Night and I'll follow you to whatever show you do next.

I'm sure he'll have another job very soon.

You know I've never watched his show....ever. But reading your post tells me he was a pretty good guy. And NBC is stupid for doing that to him! And Jay is stupid for letting them.
