âYesterday we took care of one maniac with a beard,â? said Ferrell, in reference to Osama Bin Laden. âToday, Will Ferrell will take care of another.â?
âThere is nothing else going on in this country other than the fervour to shave that beard,â? he continued. âI 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 âU.S.A.! Shave the beard!â?
He then took out some clippers and went to work shaving Conan. But not very well. âIâve only shaved dogs before,â? he protested, before admitting: âIâve made a terrible mistake.â?
