There's a hilarious interview on the Onion A.V. Club section with Conan O'Brien.

Included is a chat about where he'll do the Tonight Show when he takes over in 2009:

AVC: How did you find out about the Tonight Show gig?

COB: Ed McMahon came to my door. It was shocking. He had a large check. And he seemed confused. I don't think he's well. He had two medical attendants with him saying "No, Mr. McMahon, no. Finish your pudding." I got the call that NBC was curious if I was interested, so I said "You betcha!"

AVC: Will you be doing The Tonight Show from New York, or L.A.?

COB: No one said specifically. The Tonight Show has been in Los Angeles since 1972. So someone please do the math. Upward of 30-something-odd years. It's such a strong franchise that I can see them maybe feeling like the mountain doesn't go to Mohammed. I should get my ass out there to L.A. I can see it going that way, but no one said specifically. Which is why I keep pushing for Tampa.

For you tourism board officials who are pitching Tampa to the GOP mucky-mucks, Conan is actually goofing on us.
