You see somehow they think he does. In fact they believe it so much that they actually published his recipe for his "favorite" St. Patrick's Day dish. Problem is since Conan doesn't cook, he doesn't have a recipe. If you want to watch what he had to say about it on his show, plus check out the recipe for his "fave" stew, just

When I worked as a PR girl for a makeup company we were always sending packages of product to celebrities. Once we sent a package to any celebrity we would add their name to our "Celebrities Who Love Our Makeup" list even though we had no clue whether or not they received the package, tried it, and enjoyed it. So this doesn't surprise me at all.

All this time I've thought I was making my fave celeb's recipe, it was just from the kitchen of some suburban housewife with too much time on her hands!

That's rather odd, don't you think? Such a reputable magazine making something like that up?? I wonder what they'll have to say in response to this.
