Conan O’Brien’s brand of humor is something of an acquired taste, so it came as no surprise to anyone that his routine at the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Dinner were very hit-or-miss. Some of his punches landed perfectly, particularly when he targeted the media and NRA. Others came off a little flat.

"Here's a fun fact about tonight's food-- everything you ate was personally shot by Wayne LaPierre," O'Brien said of Wayne LaPierre "Don't worry, it was during a home invasion. The fish came in through the window."

On Fox News: "My prior experience has taught me how these dinners work. If the President laughs, everyone laughs. And if the Fox News table laughs, a little girl just fell off her bike.”

And, of course, the inevitable Huffington Post joke: "If HuffPost is here, who's covering 7 mistakes you're making with bacon?" he wondered.
