Chicago citizens are well familiar with the Wiener’s Circle, a hot dog stand where the staff yells at the usually-drunk clientele who stumble in past 3 AM looking for a bite and a fight. On last night’s episode of Conan, the comedian capped off his week hosting from the Windy City by sending the infamous Triumph the Comic Dog to the Wiener’s Circle, along with 30 Rock star Jack McBrayer, to get into some trouble. After McBrayer gets his pleasant demeanor rocked by the staff’s vulgar bromides, only Triumph can set things right — or, at least, on an even level.
I’m torn, but it’s between "Queen La’queefah" and "Nicki Minaj without the everything" for the best insult. Though the bit is obviously staged, it’s still pretty funny to watch both sides escalating and escalating with no resolution in sight — until the end, when everything seems to work out for the best. (But not to spoil it.) It’s eight minutes long, but it’s pretty worth it.
