He deserves an Emmy, Grammy, Nobel prize, and whatever other award for this joke, a truly 1 of 1 individual. Let's all just pretend like norms death is a long convoluted joke.

So the joke here is the baby dolphins and the expression "youthful purpose"? (And obviously how long he streched the joke, but im not sure i understood the little joke)

Norm shaking Andy’s hand is Norm saying, “congratulations you got it.” He knew he could make us laugh at a turd if we wanted to. And you know why we loved it? Because it gave us the opportunity to go on a 4 mile hike with Norm.

I think the joke is that we expect Norm to tell a great joke, instead he is like the person in his joke goofing around, that person in his joke is supposed to do great things, both Conan and Andy helped us to understand Norm's joke.
