Harvard Chooses Jay Over Conan

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!
