Conan O'Brien: I'm Sorry eh?

Late-night talk show guru Conan O'Brien apologized to the citizens of Quebec on Tuesday after a skit with famous hand puppet Triumph the Insult Comic Dog rubbed the provinces French-Canadian community the wrong way.

While most of Conan's landmark visit to Canada was extremely well received, the segments featuring Triumph (who is voiced by cartoonish Robert Smiegel) were considered to be racist by some members of the Canadian government.

As for Conan's apology, here were some excerpts.

O'BRIEN: "People of Quebec, I'm sorry."

TRANSLATOR: "People of Quebec, I'm an albino jackass."

O'BRIEN: "We meant no harm with our comedy piece the other night."

TRANSLATOR: "The other night, I wet the bed like a little girl."

O'BRIEN: "I was a stranger in a strange land and I was very insensitive."

TRANSLATOR: "I have a small penis."
