Hilarious: Conan O’Brian and kids play the blues

The Daily Catch - published on 12/22/16

Conan O’Brian has long been held as one of the best night-show hosts around, but this time he’s really outdone himself. He decides to see if he could get little kids to appreciate the blues if he sings about their problems. Our favorite was the little girl who “lost her bear”

Conan – Summer what makes you kinda grumpy? Summer – When I think about how my sister took my teddy bear when I was probably three. Conan – Your sister took your teddy bear when you were three? Summer – Well, me and my sister were playing around, but then she took it Conan – So she took your teddy bear. How long did she keep it for? Summer – Well actually, she like sorta like dropped it off the bed, but I catched it. Conan – Wait a minute your story’s changing. You went from your sister stole your teddy bear, which is a great blues song by the way, to your sister didn’t really take your teddybear. She just pushed it off the bed, but you caught it. I’m gonna be honest with you Summer, this isn’t the most terrible story I’ve ever heard and I’ve heard some bad things. Summer – It is when you live it.

What a line! Innocence and wisdom have their own way of lining up.

Thanks to Conan for entertaining us yet again with such a great idea!
