LOS ANGELES, CA - After a 17-year run, America's most beloved chin will no longer be hosting the Johnny Carson Show. That coveted position will now be filled by America's favorite forehead.

After 17 years of trying to fill Johnny Carson's shoes, Jay Leno's chin has decided to step down, clearing the way for Conan O'Brien's forehead to attempt to fill those same shoes.

The Johnny Carson Show's special teams unit has already begun preparations for the difficult transition from Leno's chin to O'Brien's forehead. Having performed similar facial exchange operations five other times in the past, most recently from Carson's ears to Leno's chin, they believe they can make the complicated transition go "as smoothly as possible."

O'Brien's forehead owes its fame to a condition which has been described as cranial prognathism. O'Brien himself has been quoted as saying that, while aware of surgery that could potentially reduce the size of his forehead, he does not "wish to endure a prolonged healing period" with his "beloved, iconic head in a cast."

Instead, he says he prefers to enhance his comedy by ironically drawing attention to the oversized frontal lobe some have referred to as a "five-head," combing up the front of his hair and making jokes about it. Apparently, it has worked, as his forehead now has the coveted opportunity to try to fit into Johnny Carson's shoes.

As a result of Leno's dyslexia and subsequent misinterpretation of his contract terms, his chin will continue to work for the SeeBS network, relegated to a completely different time slot.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
