Conan's not worried about Al-Qaeda's 'shoddy' replacements

May 05, 2011|By Luke Broadwater

There's been a lot of talk about who will take over terrorist organization Al-Qaeda now that Osama bin Laden is dead. While most predict Ayman Al-Zawahiri will rise to take the reigns of the organization, Conan O'Brien has some alternatives -- and he's not too worried about them. 

For the second show in a row last night, Conan mercilessly mocked the terrorist members of the organization, giving them embarrassing nickname after embarrassing nickname. (Al-Qaeda cannot be happy about this.) 

My favorite? Tareeq "Jazz Hands" Hussein. 

If one of these guys ends up running Al-Qaeda, then I agree with Conan: We're in the clear. 

Here's last night's edition, followed by Wednesday's.
