Jay Leno To Receive Humor Award. Everything You Know Is Wrong.
Entertaining millions of people doesn't mean you're funny. It could just mean that you have an army of interns who can clip newspaper headlines, or a passing knowledge of who Octomom is. Strangely, Conan O'Brien has never received the award, despite being a Harvard alum and, you know, funny. Could the Hasty Pudding Club have an ace up its sleeve with this announcement? Will Conan jump out of a cake and bite Jay Leno in the crotch? Could this be the elaborate staging of a humo intervention? Probably not, but this news is something of a shock. I'd like to think that it's just the result of NBC kicking over a shit ton of money to the club, rather than just a monumental lapse in judgement and reason.
