You know the drill -- Jay Leno pulls some sort of "prank" on random people, and then we all are supposed to laugh at how dumb they are. Yaaaawn.

Sigh, was there ever a time in our lives where the various hosts of late night TV weren't in one feud or another? If there was, it probably wasn't while 'The Tonight Show's Jay Leno was around.
