When he was at Harvard, Conan O'Brien and some friends stole a costume from the actor who played Robin. Funny prank! Here's another: O'Brien just submitted his version of The Tonight Show to the Emmys, to compete against Leno.

Now, O'Brien's Tonight Show will compete against Jay Leno's Tonight Show in the category of best variety show. Hee hee haw haw. But both will be competing against The Daily Show, whose writers use Emmys to prop up their uneven coffee tables, so neither of them will probably win anyway. Still, how dare O'Brien besmirch what some call the Nobel Prize of Television! We are now going to care even less about the Emmys than we usually do. [LAT]
