A San Diego man is suing Conan O’Brien and TBS claiming they stole his jokes from Twitter. Robert Kaseberg claims jokes about Caitlyn Jenner, Tom Brady and others were used in Conan's monologue.
His lawsuit cites the following jokes:
Kaseberg wrote: “A Delta flight this week took off from Cleveland to New York with just two passengers. And they fought over control of the armrest the entire flight.”
O’Brien said: “On Monday, a Delta flight from Cleveland to New York took off with just two passengers. Yet somehow, they spent the whole flight fighting over the armrest.”
Kaseberg wrote: “The Washington Monument is ten inches shorter than previously thought. You know the winter has been cold when a monument suffers from shrinkage.”
O’Brien said: “Surveyors announced that the Washington Monument is ten inches shorter than what’s been recorded. Of course, the monument is blaming the shrinkage on the cold weather.”
O’Brien’s production company says: “We at Conaco firmly believe there is no merit to this lawsuit.”
