Conan O'Brien on tour in Eugene, Oregon
Conan O'Brien's 'Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television' Tour might be a once-in-a-lifetime event, but that doesn't mean it isn't bound by the laws of concert tours.

Those are the unspoken laws of live entertainment physics that affect every staged entertainment venue across the globe. And just like actual physics, they are cruel mistresses with no pity for people who dare to challenge them or go outside their boundaries of motion, inertia and box office receipts.

White People Like Coco O'Brien

Are you a fan of Conan O'Brien? Were you so incensed at NBC's treatment of him that you considered launching some kind of letter writing campaign that, at best, could cripple NBC's mailroom department and force them to take a half day? Chances are you're also really white.

Christian Lander's hilarious Stuff White People Like blog featured the former 'Tonight Show' host the No. 113 thing that white people, presumably, like.

Lander said the lighter skinned people of the universe are behind Coco because "he embodies so many of the things they already like before he even opens his mouth: Ivy League Schools, Red Hair, the Boston Red Sox, Self Deprecating Humor, The Simpsons, and Bad Memories of High School (likely, but not confirmed). Seeing him on television five nights a week is a comforting reminder of community to the white people who still have televisions."

Support Haiti relief and Conan with new t-shirt

A t-shirt with this logo is available to support Haitian relief.The "I'm with Coco" campaign to honor Conan O'Brien and ravage NBC's treatment of him over The Tonight Show is selling a t-shirt to show support for Conan and to send much-needed relief funding to earthquake victims in Haiti.

Obviously, the shirt's logo is a take-off on the proliferating "Hope" poster stamped on President Obama's campaign. According to the t-shirt's sales page, a portion of the proceeds will go to Haitian earthquake relief services.

That sounds like a great idea, but there's word published about what percentage of sales -- or what dollar amount -- will go to Haiti. I'm not saying it's a scam at all. With more than 111,000 Facebook folks following the cause, there's plenty of eyes watching this effort. I just can't report the financial details on the shirt.

Meanwhile, on the "Save Conan O'Brien" front, there's a rally to show support for the current Tonight Show set for Universal Studios (the current home of Conan) this Friday at noon.
