Comedian Sarah Silverman uses her iPhone in this unnecessary censorship prank on Conan.
The Wieners Circle -- a tiny hot dog stand in Chicago's Lincoln Park -- is legendary for the shouted verbal abuse rained down on customers by the staff. So, naturally, Conan O'Brien sent the nicest guy in the world, 30 Rock's Jack McBrayer, to place an order.

First Ron Burgundy, now Vince Vaughn: Conan scored another Hollywood coup last night when Vaughn dropped by with the latest sneak peek for his new movie, The Watch. (Conan also managed to snag the new full-length trailer, which can be seen here.)
Formerly called Neighborhood Watch (the name was changed to distance the movie from the Trayvon Martin case), the flick also stars Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill. Out July 27.
University of California San Diego renamed itself "Conan O'Brien College" recently. To O'Brien's chagrin, however, the name change was only for 24 hours. Still, that didn't deter him from going to the campus and cracking wise (and perhaps heads, off-camera).
