(Newser) – Jay Leno was back in form last night, joking on The Tonight Show that his hospital stay started when he “ate a raw pig a friend brought back from Mexico,” People reports. The host didn’t reveal the real cause of his illness, but found time to joke about NBC’s overly dramatic nurse, Conan trying to kill him, and his “really bad HMO.” For clips, click the links below.
