    Winnie the Pooh is actually Chinese.

    I’m questioning the elementary public school that I attended had a 20-30ft steel slide in a playground at the school, an area called climber’s court. It was steep, very fast and it flattened out at the bottom, launching kids off the end. What was really interesting was that in winter, naturally it would freeze. Didn’t matter. Kids went down that thing faster. I grew up in Canada, too. So it wasn’t just communist, eastern European countries that had death traps!

    soviet cartoons have so much philosophical depth, I’m an Arab-Chechen mix, and both my parents are not fans of russia, yet they still let us watch Cheburashka, Gena, pogodi, and hedgehog in the fog,,,,

    But even in the 1970s, 1980s the giant metal slides/swing sets of my youth are all gone. No one would put their kids on them today.

    The way Conan reacts to when Sona and Mila start going back and forth about the Soviet toys 😂

    I love Mila Kunis. She just seems so genuine and down to earth.

    You haven’t lived until you’ve flown on a Ukrainian Airline. I flew from New York to Kiev 6 or 7 years ago and I honestly thought I was going to die. It’s exactly how Conan described. None of the bins were closed. People were out of their seats. During the taxiing. The crew seemed ambivalent to most everything. On top of all that the plane was an old 757 that probably should have been retired 20 years before my flight.

    Trivia fact: Winnie-the-Pooh was originally neither American nor Russian. Winnie first appeared in a childrens’ book written by English author A. A. Milne in 1927.

    Metal slides are the best. We used to have then very steeped in my country, the angle is smaller now.

    The genius of conan in this interview. The way he couldnt follow the conversation at 2:40 and let sona take the helm and interject comedy in proper timing. This conversation is so organic and wholesome
