Conan's horny manatee

Have you heard the story about Conan O'Brien's horny manatee?

The background
On a December 4, 2006 taping of NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" show Conan, while doing a skit about ridiculous, alternative college sports mascots, blurted out the domain name www.hornymanatee.com. He said the comment about the name was ad-lib and unscripted.

NBC purchase the name for $159
NBC execs, realizing the negative consequences if the some innovative kid bought the site and posted X-rated content, decided to purchase the name (for $159) before the the show aired that night.

Hornymanatee.com
They could have left the site blank (just to prevent X-rated content on it), but in the name of comedy, they made a pretty hilarious site out out of it. The site features a manatee in costume in hilarious sexual positions - "manatee on manatee", "manaten", etc. They even sell t-shirts. Brilliant on NBC's part.
