With news of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign is releasing an album of hip-hop songs, Conan O’Brien took opportunity to make some fitness and fat jokes. Referencing 50 Cent’s debut album, O’Brien joked that one of the songs on the Let’s Move album could be “Get Ripped or Die Tryin’” Tuesday night.

One of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel’s running jokes is to ask questions of those walking near his studio on Hollywood Boulevard.
