Harvard Chooses Jay Over Conan

By Seth Abramovitch

Jan 24, 2011

Harvard’s “Hasty Pudding Theatricals,” a club famous for somehow convincing a celebrity to show up to its annual Man of the Year ceremony and don women’s clothing because THAT’S SO FUNNY, UGH, FORGET IT, YOU’RE NOT SMART ENOUGH TO GET IT, has chosen a somewhat controversial honoree for 2011: On February 4, Jay Leno will be crowned the group's Man of the Year. That’s a clear thumbing of the nose at famed Harvard alumnus Conan Christopher O’Brien, whose legacy at the Ivy League institution (Mather House resident, Lampoon president, inventor of a primitive precursor to Facemash utilizing no computers and 5000 Uno decks) is somewhat legendary.

What will the members of Coco Nation have to say about this travesty? Will they picket the ceremony, hoisting giant placards reading, “GOD HATES JAY?” Will Jay cross the picket lines (again)? Developing!

    staind47, you are funny! It would be great to serve it like that to Leno.

    It's seems like a rather dubious honor anyway... And it's true that Conan could probably pull it off, and Jay wouldn't, so that would be... more fun? I don't get this tradition.

    Wow, that is a slap in the face. I mean Conan is a Harvard alumni. Or maybe they are gonna wait till the last second and tell Jay Leno that they decided to go with Coco.....which would be freakin hilarious! :)

    This has to be ironic doesn't it? I mean Conan went to Harvard!

    Conan is much more deserving of that title when you consider the hardship he's had this past couple years and the triumphant return he had to TV this past Fall. Not to mention the fact that Jay Leno is not funny and a terrible interviewer.

    It's a trick to lure Jay away from the studio in L.A. ...

    either this is going to be the greatest prank in history or the dumbest selection of all-time.
