Ted Turner gets the Conan treatment

(The O'Brien, not the Barbarian.)

Saturday Night Live's Will Forte rode a stuffed, man-powered bison into the studio as Ted Turner on last night's episode of "Conan" on TBS. I'm not sure if Forte has ever seen/heard Turner in real life (for instance, Faux Turner berates Conan's audience for being "marijuana-smoking, Fig Newton-eating beatniks" and T.T. always seems kind of stoned himself), but it's funny, so who cares. 'Specially when he calls Conan a freckled rooster on stilts. I like that.

After the jump, I included an appearance the real Turner made on "Late Show with David Letterman" two years earlier (to the day, in fact) for sake of comparison. Spoiler: he didn't ride a bison into the studio.

I kind of love Ted Turner.
