Will Ferrell Shaves Conan O’Brien’s Beard

Conan O Brien got a nasty shock on Monday’s edition of Conan, as actor Will Ferrell turned up to shave the host’s beard.

“Yesterday we took care of one maniac with a beard,â€? said Ferrell, in reference to Osama Bin Laden. “Today, Will Ferrell will take care of another.â€?

“There is nothing else going on in this country other than the fervour to shave that beard,â€? he continued. “I turned on the television last night to see if people were talking about it…There were people celebrating at the White House. There were people celebrating in Times Square. Chanting ‘U.S.A.! Shave the beard!â€?

He then took out some clippers and went to work shaving Conan. But not very well. “I’ve only shaved dogs before,â€? he protested, before admitting: “I’ve made a terrible mistake.â€?
