When President Barack Obama authorized a Navy Seal team 6 to take out Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan last weekend, the world was taken aback.

The world's most notorious terrorist, whose whereabouts (and whether he was even alive) were unknown for years, had been killed. It was a historic moment.

Naturally, Obama's predecessor, former President George W. Bush, used the occasion to speak on the demise of an old nemesis who eluded him for years ...

Conan O'Brien can't say he wasn't warned about the #beardpocalypse.

Last month, Will Ferrell made a Funny or Die video demanding Conan shave off his ginger beard or Will would do it for him when he came on his show May 2.

The comedian made good on his threat Monday night. As O'Brien sat waiting, Ferrell took a sip of "the blue stuff" used to disinfect combs and went to town!

Ferrell gave O'Brien a stack of 1970s-era "Playboy" magazines, asked him "Are you ready to feel the steel?" and let him have it with his razor, Excalibeard:

Starting with O'Brien's left side, Ferrell began to shave his beard and moustache, but not very well. He admitted he had only shaved dogs prior to this.

"That's horrible!" Conan exclaimed after looking in a mirror at his patchy facial hair. Then he took a hit of the blue stuff, and all was right with the world.

Just hours after sending Conan O'Brien into Tonight Show retirement with a rendition of "Free Bird" on his final episode on NBC, Will Ferrell was still rocking.

He and wife Viveca Paulin welcomed their third son - a boy by the rock n' roll approved name of Axel Ferrell! The little guy arrived on Saturday morning.

"All the Ferrells are well," said his rep, who confirmed the news.

Baby Axel joins older brothers Magnus, 5 1/2, and Mattias, 3.

Will Ferrell and Viveca Paulin, who met in an acting class 15 years ago and wed back in 2000 – announced her third pregnancy back in September.

Congratulations to the happy couple - and family!

He's as free as a bird now, and this bird you cannot change.

Truer words have never been spoken, and early this morning, a departing Conan O'Brien spent the last few minutes of his Tonight Show tenure jamming with none other than Will Ferrell on the classic Lynyrd Skynyrd farewell ballad.

Here's Will, Conan and his band doing "Free Bird" ...

Conan's final episode was, in many ways, a somber one. He showed a picture of his staff and expounded on what hosting The Tonight Show meant to him.

"Every comedian dreams of hosting the Tonight Show and, for seven months, I got to. I did it my way, with people I love, and I do not regret it," he said.

Refraining from any well-deserved NBC bashing (probably because of his contract buyout), he thanked the network for making his entire career possible.

He did needle NBC for building a $50 million studio for him just a year ago, suggesting alternate uses for it going forward: Site of Tiger Woods' mistresses 1st annual reunion, water park for Max Weinberg's illegitimate children, etc.

Oddly enough, after the Hope for Haiti Now benefit Friday, NBC chose to air Dateline at 10 p.m., rather than the Jay Leno Show, meaning the final night of Conan O'Brien's career at NBC was the only one in which he didn't have to follow Jay.

As for his next move?

"As I set off for exciting new career opportunities, I just want to make one thing clear to everyone listening out there: I will do nudity," Conan boasted.

One hosted the event, the other may have been hiding out there to avoid bad reviews for his latest film.

But while both Neil Patrick Harris and Will Ferrell make us laugh, only one can be crowned the winner of this Fashion Face-Off.

The How I Met Your Mother star and the big-time movie draw are seen below on the red carpet for the 2009 Tony Awards. Who looks more dashing?

Will Ferrell made his way down the red carpet at the premiere of Land of the Lost. The film, which is set to debut in America on June 5, opened to Australian audiences this week.

The movie is a remake of an old TV show. It follows Dr. Frank Marshall (Ferrell) as he navigates around an uncharted land that involves dinosaurs. The cast also includes Anna Friel and Danny McBride.

Will Ferrell, Always the Crowd Pleaser

The movie looks like it is going to be a pretty typical Ferrell vehicle. The trailers have their funny moments, as well as the cheesy jokes that come along with any comedy from this star.

While we aren't expecting another Anchorman, we are just hoping that we don't have another Semi-Pro on our hands.

Check out more pictures of Will Ferrell and his red carpet antics below. Click on each to enlarge.

Last night on Saturday Night Live's special Thursday election edition, President George W. Bush (Will Ferrell) finally gave his coveted endorsement to John McCain (Darrell Hammond) and especially to his running mate Sarah Palin (Tina Fey)...

The 2008 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition comes out this week.

As usual, the issue is sure to stir up debate among those who think this publication should be reserved for athletes... and those who cannot lift their jaw up off the floor due to a series of Bar Refaeli bikini photos.

Instead of choosing sides, we're simply gonna publish a few images from the issue. You can decide if they're worth getting irked about. For starters, here is this year's cover girl, Marisa Miller, looking beautiful and almost naked:

Meanwhile, Danica Patrick is also barely wearing a bathing suit in this picture. But the race car driver is still wearing more layers (one) than she has wins on the IndyCar circuit (zero):

Lastly, Heidi Klum backs down Will Ferrell in this semi-promotional ad for the actor's new movie, Semi-Pro. We really should have become comedians instead of celebrity gossip mavens:

Oprah Winfrey is receiving a lot of attention these days for campaigning on behalf of Barack Obama. Why isn't the talk show goddess backing a Republican?

Let's just say that President Bush may have turned her off to all conservatives. Take a look at this speech on global warming below and see why:
