Conan O’Brien’s Houston Fun Facts

During a bit on his show last night taped at the Majestic Theatre, Conan O’Brien played to the hometown crowd by singing a song in praise to Dallas, based upon facts he found in the city’s Wikipedia entry. He turned the pandering up to 11 by throwing in some insulting factoids about Houston:

“Houston’s total area is 650 square miles, all of it comprised of burning garbage piles.”

“Houston’s smog is eighth-worst in the USA, and it’s home to every serial killer that’s alive today.”

“Its industries are known for pollutin’, and it’s the favorite U.S. city of Vladimir Putin.”

It’s funny because it’s true?
