Conan Spoofs Herman Cain's 'Joke' On 'Meet The Press' (VIDEO)

Republican presidential hopeful and former pizza empresario Herman Cain has seen a spike in popularity as the 2012 race heats up, making him a prime target for our late night comedians.

On Monday night's "Conan," Cain got spoofed for something he said during an interview with David Gregory on "Meet The Press" Sunday -- that the electrified border fence he suggested implementing was actually "a joke."

Ohhh, we get it now. Because the idea of injuring potentially countless numbers of people just because they're from another country is funny, right? Good one, Cain!

Watch Conan have some fun with the soundbite in the parody above.
