For some time, Conan O'Brien's has been realizing his "Conan Without Borders" segments on the SCT, transplanting his strange and sarcastic sense of strange strangeness into places as diverse as Haiti, Italy and Mexico. His last trip may have finally tested O'Brien's natural southpaw talent, while he was heading to Japan for, among other things, a small rental family experience. .
