In his 22 years hosting The Tonight Show, Jay Leno crafted a winning formula: a bit of silliness, crossed with snark, and delivered with an utter lack of pretension.
As Leno prepares to hang up his Tonight Show spurs Thursday night, let's look back on some of the highlights of his decades-long tenure, from his news-making interviews to his 4,600 jokes about Bill Clinton:

Imagine Eddard Stark as the put-upon manager of a failing medieval-themed amusement park.
That's the premise behind the latest video from the gang at Bad Lip Reading (who've offered up such gems in the past as the fish-slapping Edward in a dubbed-over version of Twilight). They've taken their questionable lip-reading skills to Westeros, for a video that takes top honors as the best clip of the week.

They were hanging out at Comic-Con over the summer, they're working on The Expendables 3 and, just this week, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger were pictured having a back-slapping good time at lunch in New York City as they prepared to promote their latest flick, Escape Plan.
But the two action stars weren't always so chummy.
In 1982, Sylvester Stallone's Rocky III was in movie theaters – and so was his rival action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger's Conan the Barbarian. By 1984, a muscle-bound Schwarzenegger was the Terminator, while an equally brawny Stallone was basking in the box-office success of his Rambo franchise – and neither star wanted to concede the crown of world's manliest man.

Talk about an odd couple!
During Monday's episode of The Talk, Sharon Osbourne revealed when she was 25 she briefly dated Tonight Show host Jay Leno. "The fling was more fling for me," she said, "and not fling enough for him."
While the pairing is definitely one we'd never predict, especially considering both stars are now in long-term marriages, it's not the first celebrity romantic revelation to rock our world. Check out who else has had us scratching our heads:

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been spotted with a new lady friend in recent days – someone who shares his dedication to staying in shape.
The former world-champion bodybuilder has been on several dates with Heather Milligan, a 38-year-old Southern California physical therapist who works with a number of NFL athletes, New York's Daily News reports.
The Hollywood legend and former California governor, 65, dined with Milligan last Friday at Babalu in Santa Monica, and they were spotted driving around Brentwood the next day.

Arnold Schwarzenegger says it took seven or eight years before he found out that he had fathered a child with his housekeeper.
It wasn't until the boy "started looking like me, that's when I kind of got it. I put things together," the action star and former California governor, 65, told 60 Minutes on Sunday.
Though Mildred Baena continued working in the family household and Schwarzenegger quietly began to provide financial support to her and their son Joseph, Schwarzenegger deliberately delayed revealing his secret to his wife Maria Shriver and their four children.
"It was very difficult, strange, bizarre," said Schwarzenegger. "I just said to myself, 'Okay, I'm going to put this away.' "

Arnold Schwarzenegger says his affair with his family's housekeeper wasn't the first time he cheated on Maria Shriver.
The action star and former California governor admits in his new autobiography to a "hot affair" with actress Brigitte Nielsen while they filmed Red Sonja in 1985 when he and Shriver were living together, Time magazine reports.
Schwarzenegger, now 65, never thought the relationship with Nielsen was serious and that the fling only convinced him to marry Shriver, he writes in Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, according to Time.

Opening up for the first time since his marriage collapsed with the revelation that he fathered a child with a housekeeper, Arnold Schwarzenegger acknowledges how badly he hurt wife Maria Shriver and their family.
Promoting his upcoming book on Sunday night's 60 Minutes on CBS, the action star was asked by correspondent Lesley Sthal, "Was this just the most unbelievable act of betrayal to Maria?"
"I think it was the stupidest thing I've done in the whole relationship," Schwarzenegger, 65, replies. "It was terrible. I inflicted tremendous pain on Maria and unbelievable pain on the kids."
