Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Conan:
Huge snowstorm hit the Midwest. This thing was crazy. The roof of the Metrodome, where the Minnesota Vikings play, collapsed. So I guess even God wants Bret Favre to retire.

Time magazine is now ranking the best tweets of the year. According to Time the top tweet of 2010 was written by John McCain. Experts say it’s even more impressive considering McCain thought he was opening his garage door.

Jimmy Eat World was the musical guest. They rocked.
Good show. I give it:
