Am I the only who didn’t love “American Hustle”? [Nope! Oveeeeeraaaaaated. — Amelia] Thankfully, Conan O’Brien gave me a reason to like the movie when he showed us his own take on its opening scene at the MTV Movie Awards.

Did you know that sloths squeak!? Is this common knowledge to everybody else? I guess I had never thought before about “what does the sloth say?” I don’t know how I existed on this earth for so long without knowing that sloths’ squeaks are as cute as their little smiles.
