Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Takes on Chicago's Wiener's Circle
I can't think of any bigger opposites than Jack McBrayer and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. One is known for being the nicest, most polite personality on television, the other is an a-hole, which is exactly why this Conan bit is so damn funny.

For anyone unfamiliar with Triumph, he's a puppet character who became famous for mocking and insulting celebrities. Triumph is performed by Robert Smigel, an actor, comedian and writer best known for his Saturday Night Live "TV Funhouse" cartoon shorts.

Brilliantly, Conan placed McBrayer is the absolute worst environment you could imagine him in, a hotdog stand in Chicago called Wiener's Circle where the employees are paid to be rude, and where a comic like Smigel can excel with his improvisational insluts.

What you are about to see is funny (if you like funny things) but also not safe for work, kids or grandparents. But for you 30 Rock or Triumph fans, this is 8 minutes of comedy heaven:
