Dear Jay

I’m on Team CoCo, as you can tell from my Conan-Leno talk show wars limerick.

But unlike many Team CoCo members, I put most of the blame on NBC … and not on Jay Leno. NBC, after all, has been treating both O’Brien and Leno like two very pricey pawns. And doing it incompetently, to boot.

Jay’s been taking quite the beating in the press. So I watched Jay’s Monday night attempt to repair his image and set the record straight with interest. Unfortunately, I found his humble, nice guy shtick overdone and just a wee bit nauseating. Methinks Leno has gotten some really bad public relations advice.

And speaking of advice, here’s some advice for Jay Leno in limerick form:

Dear Jay
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear Jay, you sure poured it on thick.
You’re a poor, lowly country-boy hick?
You just do what your told?
Merely one of the fold?
Give your PR adviser a kick.

    Not sure if you want to post this here, but I have one that’s related, somewhat:

    50,000 have perished in Haiti
    A boy blew himself up – an Iraqi
    The world is a mess
    We couldn’t care less
    What’s news? Coco, Leno, and NBC

    I think Meryl Streep did good…. never liked Leno anyway!
