After news broke of former Libyan Prime Minister Muammar al-Gaddafi's death, some may have been shocked, while others, like Conan O'Brien and the staff of his show, chose to celebrate more than an end to his reported dictatorship placed on people of the country, but to the end of misspellings of his name.
Gaddafi was killed Thursday after being captured by the Libyan fighters he once scorned as rats, cornered and shot in the head after they overran his last bastion of resistance in his hometown of Sirte.
Following the huge news, a skit on the Conan O'Brien Show, shed light on other sorts of celebrations that occurred as result of the colonel's death on Thursday night.
The huge story is that [Muammar al-Gaddafi] is gone and a lot of people are relieved that he is, but no one is happier than or more relieved than our very own Lori Pond, says O'Brien.
Abdel Majid Mlegta, an official of the National Transitional Council told Reuters that Gaddafi was captured and wounded in both legs at dawn on as he tried to flee in a convoy which NATO warplanes attacked.
Gaddafi reportedly died of wounds suffered in his capture, a senior NTC military official told reporters.
Pond, the show's electronic graphics supervisor, has apparently been in charge of spelling the prime minister's name for the multiple bits performed on the show.
For all the many gad bits that I've done over the past 17 years, Gaddafi's name is famously spelled many different ways. And now that Gaddafi is out of the picture, Lori had a huge celebration in her office, O'Brien adds.
O'Brien went on to highlight another staffer joyously affected by the death of the infamous prime minister, a Gaddafi impersonator for the show.
