Conan gives Jimmy Fallon the pickle - VIDEO

FallonDid you know that there was a late night television tradition over at NBC of late night hosts giving each other the pickle? It's true!

Conan O'Brien has given the giant green pickle to new Late Night host Jimmy Fallon. The tradition was started by David Letterman, who gave the pickle to O'Brien when O'Brien took over Late Night all those years ago and Letterman went over to CBS. The pickle was delivered by someone on Conan's staff and included a nice note from the new Tonight Show host, asking that Fallon give it to the next person. Conan was sure to say that would be many years from now.

OK, now that I've done a post like a third grader by including the words "pickle" and "staff" as much as possible, here's the video that Fallon made for his blog showing the pickle and the note. I'm assuming it won't show up on ebay at some point.
