    At the end of Conan's interview with Patton Oswalt, they mentioned booby ------, and I couldn't lip-read what was silenced out. I'm not up on my dirty lingo, can anyone tell me what they might have said?

    Probably because there really is such a site and the network saw no reason to give them a free plug. I used to give a canned talk to new hires that included my then-employer's policy on internet use. To make sure people were awake and paying attention I used "W W W spankme dot com" as a made-up example of the kind of sites people did not want to access from work. Our regional office was later shut down and on the last day someone who'd remembered my little talk actually typed that web address in her browser and was surprised to find that the site really existed. (Although not as surprised as I was. Not that anybody believed me about that... [​IMG]
