WATCH: Thumbs For Nipples or Nipples for Thumbs? Ricky Gervais Explains.

  • Ricky Gervais has been taking questions from his fans to keep himself sane during the pandemic, and he told Conan O'Brien that he's been asked everything from fanciful nature facts to whether or not he'd rather have thumbs for nipples or nipples for thumbs. Such is the majesty of Twitter.

    His answer? "Thumbs for nipples, because then I could hitchhike while reading a book."

    O'Brien, who seems to be finally be wearing his classic hairdo again, chose the other option. "Because then I can wear mittens and constantly be arousing myself and no one knows."

    The conversation didn't stop there; the rest of it involves lactation. 

    Conan airs weeknights at 11:00 PM ET on TBS.
