Conan O'Brien is officially banned from flying out of Newark, New Jersey. Or flying to there, for that matter.

The Tonight Show host made a crack about  the city earlier this week, saying: "The Mayor of Newark, New Jersey wants to set up a citywide program to improve residents' health. The health-care program would consist of a bus ticket out of Newark."

Newark Mayor Cory Booker then posted a series of tongue-in-cheek anti-Conan clips on You Tube (see below), first putting him on Newark's no-fly list.

Conan then continued with the hysterical mockery, banning Booker from the Burbank Airport. Then he joked about how instead of being banned from Newark, he could be of more use navigating the country's sewer system (because it all runs through Newark).

In response, Booker then banned him from the entire state altogether.

We can wait to see what's gonna happen next between these two.
