Conan & the Manatee

As part of a joke on his show last week, Conan O'Brien mentioned a fake website. He found out later that NBC has to buy any website he mentions if it doesn't already exist, so for $159, NBC became the owner of HornyManatee.com. Conan didn't want the site to go to waste, so they started adding stuff to it, including fan art. I sent in this one that I spent about a half hour on. Conan and his show are the coolest.

I bet some of you sailors would like to have a mermaid like this one over for spaghetti. Am I right?

There are so many things that are wrong about this... I don't know what to say.

I have never seen a "coy" manatee before... Nice work. One question, though... Why did Conan have to be naked?

Brilliant as usual.

Too funny. We had a "horny manatee" week over at Art Jumble this week too in honor of the webcam horny manatee. Great stuff!

Am I really the only person brave enough to comment on this? Tough crowd, tough crowd.

Nice job, great entry Shane. Fantastic expressions on 'em! The funny thing 'bout that site is that it actually had a disney ad banner on it.
