(Remember that time when they forgot to renew their URL and the website just didn't exist for a couple days. Doesn't GoDaddy send a heads up or something?) The excerpt that you can read on the Rolling Stone site is interesting, but kind of lacking in the funny.

For some reason, The New York Post has gotten their hands on the juicy stuff. Like Conan's fiery feelings regarding the beloved masturbating bear:


"If there's something we did for a long time that we've established as ours, we'll figure out a way to do it," O'Brien told Rolling Stone in its Nov. 11 issue. "I won't be denied my Masturbating Bear!"

He is, of course, referring to the "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" gag where a bear wearing a loincloth -- actually a man in a costume -- walked on stage and then pleasured itself to the strains of Aram Khachaturian's famous "Sabre Dance." It's one of many characters and comedy bits that frequently appeared on "Late Night."

"What I really wanna do," O'Brien confided, "is be sued over the bear and then appear in court with the Masturbating Bear. 'Your Honor, this bear can't help himself!' "

Post Tonight Show debacle, Conan's support has gone through the roof, and judging by all the buzz surrounding his return, his TBS show will not disappoint. But if for some reason you were still on the fence about what's to come, perhaps these pictures of an old friend will put that to rest.
