Cory Booker, the Mayor of Newark has â€śaccording to the powers invested in (him) by the people of Newarkâ€ť officially banned Conan Oâ€™ Brien from the cityâ€™s airport. Get the rest of the scoop here.
No need to fret, Conan, LaGuardia is close by.
The Mayor of New Jerseyâ€™s biggest city didnâ€™t take kindly to a joke that the â€śTonight Showâ€ť host recently made on his program during the opening monologue. Poking fun at the cityâ€™s dismal reputation the funny man said:
“The mayor of Newark NJ wants to set up a citywide program to improve residents’ health. The health care program would consist of a bus ticket out of Newark.”
Despite the fact that the wisecrack was quite humorous to those of us not living in Newark, the cityâ€™s mayor took offense, and issued a declaration that banned Conan Oâ€™ Brien from the airportâ€¦
I for one canâ€™t wait to hear Conanâ€™s retort to the Mayorâ€™s plea for attention. In fact, if anything, I think the only people who have the right to take offense to the joke are those that may of mistaken the â€śTonight Showâ€ť for a real news program, and got there hopes up about the free bus ticket.
For the dramatic conclusion of Bookerâ€™s feeble attempt to land a blow against Oâ€™ Brien he sternly said:
â€śTry JFK, buddy.â€ť
I tell you, these words may have stung, but not nearly as bad as Conanâ€™s triathlon skit mishap last week, in which the comedian severely hit his head landing him in the hospital.
