NBC Will Not Keep Conan From His Masturbating Bear

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the good bits of which are not online yet, Conan explains that he is taking the masturbating bear, a recurring character on both of his NBC shows, with him to his new home on TBS. "If there's something we did for a long time that we've established as ours, we'll figure out a way to do it," he says. "I won't be denied my Masturbating Bear!" Furthermore, Conan's hoping NBC takes issue with this. "What I really wanna do is be sued over the bear and then appear in court with the Masturbating Bear. 'Your Honor, this bear can't help himself!'" If NBC won't sue him over the bear (good Lord, what a PR disaster that be), maybe some public-interest group can do us all a solid and make this lawsuit happen anyway? [NYP]
