Conan O’Brien is well known for several things; his incredible sense of humor, flaming red hair, association with ‘The Simpsons’, and his affinity for going big for the holidays. Although Christian himself, Conan always insists on impressing his Jewish fans with something extraordinary for Chanukah… and so we have the return of the ‘Human Centipede’ menorah.

After Conan’s unveiling of the cult horror film mockery last year, featuring nine crawling men sewn mouth to rear end with lights on their backs, audiences were both thrilled and horrified. This year, however, the reaction seemed almost non-existent. Whether this relates directly to lack of viewers for Conan’s TBS show or audiences becoming accustomed to his antics, we aren’t sure.

Conan himself seemed surprise that viewers didn’t respond. After the episode aired on Monday night, Conan posted on Twitter saying “Just in case you thought I couldn’t ruin #Hanukkah, here’s what happened on last night’s #CONAN: bit.ly/124gZ5e #Sorry”

What do you think of the ‘Human Centipede’ menorah? Offensive? Funny?
