While the rest of the media was creating a diversion with some other event, the REAL story of yesterday was the ruthless shaving of Conan O'Brien's symbolic beard by none other than Will Ferrell. Nice try, Bin Laden, but even you can't take away from this moment. Roll the terrifying clip.

RIP Conan's beard. While you may have simply been a collection of hair on some tall man's face, you represented so much more.
