Yell Podcast Quotes to Conan at Own Risk

I was in a seemingly likely public place to spot celebrities when all of a sudden, I see a tall, pale, ginger figure ahead of me. As suggested by Conan, I started belting a litany of quotes from the Podcast as I approached.

Suddenly, I was right upon him wondering why Conan is not reacting to my "KEDAKAI", "COCKAROO", or even his favorite "MAGOOOSH". I perform one last ditch "Jub Jub" when suddenly the man swings around and snarles "WHAT'S YOUR F***KING PROBLEM?"

This person was not Conan.

I shamefully replied, "Very sorry, I thought you were Conan O'Brein". The man seemed even more perplexed by this and stormed off muttering.

Wheeeeelmed wheeelmed whelmed

Giving thanks to y’all and all youins (<—that’s proper northeastern right?). Thanks always for being yourselves and trusting someone will find comfort and camaraderie in it. May you be well and neither under or over whelmed.

PS- What about Conan O’Brian needs a band every once in a blue moon??

Have a good food day 🤌🏼,
