University of California, San Diego Briefly Changes its Name to "Conan O'Brien College" and Asks its Namesake Some Questions


In honor of a planned speaking engagement, UCSD changed its name for the day to "Conan O'Brien College." In his new position as king of the school, King Conan answered exactly the type of things you'd imagine college kids would ask, like: What's the craziest thing you did in college? Who was the most attractive person you've interviewed? How would you survive a zombie apocalypse? Conan is able to take even the more mundane questions and get solid laughs out of them. The one question that wasn't asked but probably should've been was, "Wait, so universities are free to just change their names whenever they want? If so, why doesn't University of Phoenix change its name to Yale? Why don't all colleges change their names to Yale. Except, of course, Yale, which would change its name to Harvard and Harvard, which would change its name to Super Harvard."
