Conan O'Brien joke about Westword's medical marijuana reviewer search: Laugh at us, America!

We're as sober as especially sober judges here at Westword -- yet, for whatever reason, we're just getting around to posting a joke Tonight Show host Conan O'Brien told about our search for a medical marijuana reviewer back on November 17.

At the end of our quest, we wound up doubling our (and hopefully your) pleasure by hiring not one but two medical marijuana critics. Check out samples of writing by William Breathes and The Wildflower Seed by clicking here and here. As for Conan's joke, it's about just past the five minute point in the video above (following some fascinating commercials) -- and we're referred to as "a Colorado newspaper."

Wonder how many viewers thought he was talking about the Denver Post?
