I'm fairly sure that few, if any, of the various mothers in my life will appreciate this, but that does not make it any less amusing. SNL has certainly rediscovered its edge:
Oedipus called, he wants his story back.
I missed the show, but that clip is way more cringe-inducing than anything or any picture I could (or would) ever post about Carrie Prejean or standing in solidarity with her.
Way too Freudian for me, but edgy, yes, funny, kind of.
For the first time in a long time I laughed out loud at SNL when I saw it last night. Granted, I MIGHT have been slightly under the influence, but that's no different that when I watched SNL and laughed every week. Well, the influence-producing substance was different. :-) Cringe inducing, by all means, but that's what made it so fun.
The exopthalmic one was definitely Susan Sarandon.
At the end of the show they thanked Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson (along with a whole bunch of other people who had appeared on the show, like Jimmy Fallon).
Ah, yes, Susan Sarandon. She boldly explored the near reaches of crypto-lesbianism in "Thelma and Louise," pre-prised the current role in "White Palace," and is now, in the twilight of her movie career, joining a host of others in unleashing her true brilliance as a foreign policy expert. That Susan Sarandon. Of the Clarkson I know nothing.
I liked the "dick in a box" references ("this is the second best idea we've had"). Incredibly, every SNL Justin Timberlake has been on has been pretty good. The guy really has a talent for comedy. As a result, they use him in every skit (unlike other hosts who appear just a few times). Who'd have thought it?
