Watch: Conan O’Brien sing ‘The Simpsons’ iconic monorail song

This weekend, to celebrate 25 years of The Simpsons, a cavalcade of voice actors and stars filled Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl for a night of awesome Simpsons music. Though Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith and Hank Azaria were on hand (three people who supplied many voices for the people of Springfield), the real show-stopper came when Conan O’Brien stepped out to sing the famous “Monorail Song” from the fourth season’s “Marge vs. the Monorail” episode.

Belle & Sebastian- The Stars of Track and Field

You only did it so that you could wear
Your terry underwear
And feel the city air
Run past your body

"Eric Ervine, Jimmy Hasse, and Heidi Unkefer make up the entire art department of The Onion, producing about 50 original images per week for theonion.com (Nicole Antonuccio handles the art for Clickhole). “Calling them artistic wizards is a disservice to their talents,” managing editor Berkley says. “Really, it’s a travesty that Adobe hasn’t renamed Photoshop after them"…

"What The Onion does is more difficult than it seems; just look at less successful copycats, like the Daily Currant, to see what a high-wire act satirical journalism is. But The Onion is doing more than just writing fake news; with just a handful of writers and a three-person art department, it has managed to create what television and movies often fail to do: a fully-functioning, fascinating world just different enough from our own to serve as a damning critique of it."
