Happy 44th birthday, Conan O’Brien! Late-night talk show hosts come and go, but you — you pale-faced, carrot-topped Irish toothpick of man — have kept us entertained for 14 — er, make that 11 laugh-filled years. Many happy returns of the day! (Is there any chance, before you take over the Tonight Show chair, that Earth might once again confront the steely menace that is Pimpbot 5000?)
