Late night television brings us a wide array of enthralling hilarity. Letterman, Jon Stewart, that awesome quiz show where contestants regularly get questions like “Unscramble the numbers 030 to make the name of a popular movie” wrong (“James Bond?”). Nothing, however, brings us joy quite like Conan O’Brien. He’s dry, he’s funny, and best of all, he’s (almost) from Boston (O’Brien grew up in Brookline and went to Harvard). Last week, our Bostonian pleasure was doubled when “The Office”’s B.J. Novak, a Newton native, showed up on Conan’s couch. Our joy, however, was dampened when we learned something troubling, something sinister, something not to be borne about Cadbury Creme Eggs from Novak. Why don’t we let him tell you himself?
