That is What 370 Pounds Looks Like

I know what many of you are thinking. "How did Salt & D get away with posting that topless photo of Miss Cleo?"

Unfortunately, that is not a pudgy, Jamaican psychic. That's not even a woman! That is Terrence Cody of my beloved Alabama Crimson Tide. He, like many other draft-eligible college football stars, is in Mobile, AL this week for the Senior Bowl. And, like all college football all star games, the Senior Bowl begins its week of festivities with all of the players weighing in.

It did not go well for Terrence "Mount" Cody. As one scout said "That's not a pretty 370." If you scroll down and look at the picture without seeing his head, Cody's man boobs and belly button look just as surprised as everyone else that the scale only says 370.

Here are a quick list of my favorite jokes for this picture.

1. Things have gone horribly wrong for Ziggy Marley.
2. In my fantasy Aunt Jamima was not only topless, but also holding pancakes.
3. Weensie from Old School gets ready to hit the beach on his Caribbean vacation.
4. The Jamaican bobsled team will have an unfair advantage this year.

Conan's Open Letter

What is written below is Conan O'Brien's open letter to his fans explaining his decision not to stay with The Tonight Show.


People of Earth:

In the last few days, I've been getting a lot of sympathy calls, and I want to start by making it clear that no one should waste a second feeling sorry for me. For 17 years, I've been getting paid to do what I love most and, in a world with real problems, I've been absurdly lucky.

That said, I've been suddenly put in a very public predicament and my bosses are demanding an immediate decision.

Six years ago, I signed a contract with NBC to take over The Tonight Show in June of 2009. Like a lot of us, I grew up watching Johnny Carson every night and the chance to one day sit in that chair has meant everything to me. I worked long and hard to get that opportunity, passed up far more lucrative offers, and since 2004 I have spent literally hundreds of hours thinking of ways to extend the franchise long into the future.

It was my mistaken belief that, like my predecessor, I would have the benefit of some time and, just as important, some degree of ratings support from the prime-time schedule. Building a lasting audience at 11:30 is impossible without both.

But sadly, we were never given that chance. After only seven months, with my Tonight Show in its infancy, NBC has decided to react to their terrible difficulties in prime-time by making a change in their long-established late night schedule.

Last Thursday, NBC executives told me they intended to move the Tonight Show to 12:05 to accommodate the Jay Leno Show at 11:35. For60 years the Tonight Show has aired immediately following the late local news. I sincerely believe that delaying the Tonight Show into the next day to accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting.

The Tonight Show at 12:05 simply isn't the Tonight Show. Also, if I accept this move I will be knocking the Late Night show, which I inherited from David Letterman and passed on to Jimmy Fallon, out of its long-held time slot. That would hurt the other NBC franchise that I love, and it would be unfair to Jimmy.

So it has come to this: I cannot express in words how much I enjoy hosting this program and what an enormous personal disappointment it is for me to consider losing it. My staff and I have worked unbelievably hard and we are very proud of our contribution to the legacy of The Tonight Show. But I cannot participate in what I honestly believe is its destruction.

Some people will make the argument that with DVRs and the Internet a time slot doesn't matter. But with the Tonight Show, I believe nothing could matter more.

There has been speculation about my going to another network but, to set the record straight, I currently have no other offer and honestly have no idea what happens next. My hope is that NBC and I can resolve this quickly so that my staff, crew, and I can do a show we can be proud of, for a company that values our work.

Have a great day and, for the record, I am truly sorry about my hair; it's always been that way.

Principles or Stupidity?

Slash says he will never play with Axl Rose again. In fact, he told GQ that he has already turned down huge offers to get the original Guns N' Roses lineup back together.

So here's the question. Is Slash a man of tremendous principal or an idiot?
