The title to last night’s episode of Conan was “Is Anyone Paying Attention to These Friggin’ Episode Titles?”
Why, yes, Coco. I am. The silly episode titles are one of m favorite things about the show. I enjoy them so much that I even created a contest and a Twitter hashtag game; “Name an episode of Conan!” which I’m about to launch in a few minutes.
I took it upon myself to create this obviously necessary contest because they hadn’t yet. It’s high time we had this! I haven’t quite figured out what the prize should be, but I’ve definitely decided to be selfish with it. I figure I’m gonna win this thing since I’ll probably be the only one playing. I’m a crafty devil.
A few prizes have come to mind. I’m just trying to decide between a new Ford Fusion, a job with the show or $25,000. So what if these are ridiculous. I created this fake contest and I do what I want!
I’ve come up with several possible titles and about 9 that I like. So, each day during the week I’ll post a title I came up with and I’ll include the hashtags #NameAConan and #conteststhatdontexist. Maybe I’ll @ the show, too. But I’m sure it will go largely unnoticed. They’re probably still sifting through “Grow the beard back” tweets.
As a little treat to you guys who visit my site I’ll include some of my rejected titles below.
Two Tickets to the Pun Show
The Ballad of Chip Chop
Conansus: The Forbin Project
The Sting of Gordon Sumner
My Diplomatic Immunity Has Just Been Revoked
