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.

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."

Debris filled the streets after the rally to support Conan O'Brien outside Universal Studios.If you live in Los Angeles, be prepared to run into a lot of Conan O'Brien fans with severe colds over the next week.

Hundreds of dedicated "Cone-heads" braved some of the nastiest weather LA has seen in years to gather outside Universal Studios to show support for O'Brien and opposition over NBC's decision to remove him from The Tonight Show.

As multiple rain storms swept through the area, intersections flooded and cars choked out in waste-deep water. Wind gusts tore palm trees frond from frond, and flood channels threatened to overflow their drainage pipes.

But, throngs of orange-clad O'Brien enthusiasts gathered outside Universal's main gate -- urging the passing motorists to honk if they supported Conan's quest to hang on to the 11:30 PM slot on NBC.
