As part of her new Netflix talk show, Chelsea Handler this week interviewed TED conference curator Chris Anderson. In the episode, she does an "audition" for a TED talk of her own.

We love you, Chelsea, but don't quit your day job. Which, by the way, is a long-awaited thrice-weekly half-hour talk show that just started on Netflix.

As far as fake TED talks go, I'm partial to the one MythBusters host Adam Savage gave at this year's NinjaTED event.

Anderson, meanwhile, was on Handler's show to promote his new book TED Talks, which aims to help readers improve their public speaking skills.
