Small children annoying you while staying home these days? No problem!
Conan O’Brien has a fairly unique method for getting “revenge” on them — and it involves the subtle art of gambling.
“Because all live sporting events have been canceled, ESPN is rebroadcasting some of the greatest sports games of all-time — games where you already know the outcome,” explains Conan.
“All you have to do is tell your kids these old games are happening live and then get them to bet against you, putting all of their allowance on a team you convince them can’t lose.”
O’Brien goes on to say that if you miss a game, you can simply get them to bet on the 1981 movie Miracle on Ice instead. And if they ask why the game looks like a movie?
“Say something like, ‘I don’t know, I think they’re just trying to keep up with Quibi. GET OFF MY ASS!“
