A few days back, Taco Bell unleashed it’s latest vaguely Mexican-ish-sorta-sounding fast-food Voltron, the Quesalupa — or as Conan O’Brien dubbed it, the “Case of Lupus” — but only in Toledo. Because none of us live anywhere near the Ohio city and because fast food items tend to look very different than what’s advertised, we asked readers to send in photos of the Quesalupa in the wild. You obliged, and the results are surprisingly not horrifying. [More]
One of the staffers on Conan O’Brien’s show is an aficionado of the fine, authentic Mexican cuisine at Taco Bell, so using the “incredible power” he has in show business, Conan did what any good boss with a TV talk show would do — took the staffer to the Taco Bell test kitchen for a segment. [More]
You’ve probably seen any of the dozens of commercials that legendary San Diego anchorman Ron Burgundy has recently made for the Dodge Durango. But the tell-it-like-it-is newsman isn’t going to hide his distaste for the vehicle. [More]
Times have changed, and cable no longer plays automatic second trombone to network TV. ESPN hosts Monday Night Football and the BCS championship game, the NBA playoffs are on TNT and the new king of late night is on TBS.
For the Conan fans out there who don’t feel like ponying up for basic cable, TBS has decided to post every episode of his new show online the day after it airs.

As you are probably aware, we tried to help Mr. CoCo by offering EECB information for NBC executives. It didn’t work, but people seemed to accept the fact that we were now writing about Conan O’Brien which, editorially, we find refreshing. NBC even ended up in the Worst Company In America bracket, though that might have also been due to contact dermatitis from Comcast. Anyhow, Conan was on 60 Minutes the other day and now some genius has added subtitles of what the bearded ex-host was really thinking as he politely declined to unload on Jay Leno. We’re sorry our EECB didn’t help you, CoCo, but we still love you.
Perhaps following the lead of Denny’s, who has been pointing customers to the wrong Twitter account for several months, the folks at United Airlines decided to use their Twitter to link out to a site selling male enhancement pills.
Actor B.J. Novak from The Office appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien bearing proof that Cadbury eggs have recently shrunk. In tow were two Cadbury eggs; the egg from yesteryear was clearly larger than the egg currently on shelves.
