Conan’s Chicago visit was rich with meat-related content. Here are some of my favorites:
Conan’s 5/20 Tweet – “I’m in Chicago, the food capital of America, for one more night. Hang on, arteries, hang on!”
Special guest Lil Ed (red sequined fez-wearing Chicago Blues Legend) joined Conan on stage and sang a song called, “Icicles in My Meat loaf”.
Chicago is Andy Richter’s hometown and he embraced the audience with a warm welcome of, “I love Chicago, you are the people who taught me to love meat and cheese!”
Later, Conan made a reference as the voice of “the one vegan in Chicago” by saying, “you’re taking the life of innocent cheese!”
And my personal favorite, on the second night of the Chicago shows, Conan said, “I’ve been here for two days and I already have a 30% blockage in my artery. It came out shaped like a brat. And I ate it.”
Thanks for two fantastic shows, Conan!
P.S. Did he talk about meat and food this much in other cities too?
