Saturday Night Live Discriminated All Over Victoria Jackson’s Free Gay-Hating Speech

Let's get both these kids in the next Wes Anderson movie
Like many Americans who now regret it, we watched the great big Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary program Sunday, and we kept looking over at our 17-year-old son and explaining that the show didn’t so much suck as that it was just trying to recreate the feel of every single sketch that ran after “Weekend Update” for 40 years. And of course, we kept an eye out for former cast members who didn’t quite make it onstage, like Sen. Al Franken, who was definitely there, and Victoria Jackson, who was nowhere to be seen. WELL! Turns out that V-Jack was there all right, but she was shunted off into the overflow room, not given a seat in the studio audience. She’s not sure why that happened, but she bets it’s maybe because she’s a Christian who stands up for Traditional Marriage! Or maybe some young’un on the production staff just confused her with another crazy blond lady from the internet and worried that she’d storm the stage, grab the mic, and shout that America would never submit to Muslim rule.

Here Is A Jimmy Carter Caption Contest, For Your Weekend Amusement!

Preemptive Reference: 'Sounds like you've got yourself some Orange Sunshine'
Historian Michael Beschloss tweeted this awesome picture of James Earl Carter wearing an Allman Brothers T-Shirt while campaigning in 1976, and Twitter smart person Seth Cansler Clark summed up its content quite succinctly: “GEORGIA AS HELL!” Read more on Here Is A Jimmy Carter Caption Contest, For Your Weekend Amusement!…

SNL: Obama And McConnell Get Wasted At Bourbon Summit (Video)

If only ...
It’s the summit you know will (probably) never really happen, but it sure is fun to imagine President Obama and newly selected Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell knockin’ back a few and even finding common ground. Like having themselves a good chuckle prank calling Hillary Clinton to tell her, “This is Publishers Clearing House. I want you to know you’ve won an all-expense paid trip to … getting’ whooped in 2016!” Read more on SNL: Obama And McConnell Get Wasted At Bourbon Summit (Video)…

Dana Loesch Destroys Feminism Forever, With Hilarious Rightwing ‘Comedy’ Video

It's funny 'cause feminists are fat ugly dykes who hate America!
Here’s a thing that exists! Dana Loesch has a teevee show on Glenn Beck’s cable/internet channel, and she does hilarious rightwing comedy on it! Remember how dumb feminist ladies thought that Jeopardy! was a tad sexist when it suggested that women spend all their time dreaming of a new vacuum cleaner? Well, Dana and her crack team of writers (we assume there are writers?) couldn’t wait to mock how dumb feminists are for hating the family and housework and everything that is right with the world, so they made their very own Jeopardy! sketch, with clues like this: Read more on Dana Loesch Destroys Feminism Forever, With Hilarious Rightwing ‘Comedy’ Video…

Jon Stewart: F-ck You, Shakespeare, F-ck You. (Video)

Really, who *hasn't* wanted to yell 'Fuck you, Shakepeare!' at one time or another?
Like Yr Wonkette, Jon Stewart has a soft spot for Old Handsome Joe Biden, that loveable cutup and advocate for victims of domestic violence. But golly, OHJB can put his foot in it, can’t he? Like how he referred to bankers who foreclosed on homes during the financial crisis as “Shylocks” the other day (oh, come on, Joe!). This also gave Stewart the chance to give Shakespeare the “Fuck you!” he’d been waiting 400 years to deliver. Then, fresh off apologizing for the “Shylocks” remark, America’s Goofy Uncle referred to Asia as “the Orient,” which is not the preferred nomenclature, Dude. “Orient? Shylock? It’s like Biden hasn’t been out of the house since 1962!” Read more on Jon Stewart: F-ck You, Shakespeare, F-ck You. (Video)…

SNL’s Leslie Jones Jokes About Slavery In Unladylike Fashion And So Many Sad Tears Are Shed

Oh, Saturday Night Live. We never watch you, but other people bother to watch and find funny things. There were funny things this weekend! The Beygency thing was hilarious and then new-ish writer Leslie Jones came on Weekend Update and she killed it dead with jokes about sex and slavery, which has many many people being sad all over.

SNL’S Fake Ad For ‘CNN Pregnancy Test’ Not Quite As Bad As Actual CNN

Saturday Night Live has a pretty creative take on CNN’s constant, terrible coverage of the missing Malaysian airliner: What if CNN made a pregnancy test? You’d get constant updates, but no real information. It’s a cute fake ad, even if it’s no Happy Fun Ball, but it might have been funnier if instead of the constant “still searching for pregnancy” updates it had thrown a few more jabs at the substance of CNN’s lack of substance, like asking if the pregnancy could be detected by a psychic or showing a hologram of a uterus, complete with Wolf Blitzer turning off the lights in the studio to demonstrate how dark it is inside a lady’s mommyparts.

Louis C.K. Is Whiter Than Ever In SNL’s ‘Black Jeopardy!’ Sketch (Video)

Hey! SNL did a funny sketch that didn’t drag on forever! “Black Jeopardy!” features Louis C.K. as a “Professor of African American Studies at Brigham Young University.” He’s only slightly more tragically white than Yr Dok Zoom. It’s no Chevy Chase and Richard Pryor in the infamous “Word Association” sketch (“Dead Honky”), but what is? And, OK, it’s not 1975 any more either. Read more on Louis C.K.

Liam Neeson Will Not Let Vladimir Putin’s Aggression Stand, Man

If there’s anything SNL does brilliantly, it’s movie parodies. And political sketches! And political movie sketches with a tough-guy monologue you remember from the trailer because you didn’t even have to see the movie, but here is Liam Neeson delivering another version of it anyway, and not even looking very embarrassed about the whole thing! That there is professionalism. If this doesn’t scare Vladimir Putin into withdrawing troops from Crimea, maybe SNL can threaten to keep making this sketch over and over and beaming it into Russia.

Watch Michelle Obama, Jimmy Fallon, And Will Ferrell In This SNL Sketch From 1986 (Video)

Submitted for your approval: A Saturday Night Live sketch out of time, with Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell in drag as teen girls, joined by FLOTUS Michelle Obama in one of those guest appearances that proves that a prominent non-actor is a “good sport” — a little stiff but game, exactly as she should be. Michelle plays it just right — she’s clearly having fun, playing it mostly straight, with only a minimum of mugging required of her. Plus kale chips.

Deleted Comments Of The Day: President Jesse Ventura Meets Poe’s Law

We know you guys love some good old-fashioned derp in these columns, and we aim to please. But frankly, we have to confess that we can’t quite tell if this item from the comment queue is an actual example of Jesse Ventura-lovin’ wingnuttery, or a clever parody of same. “Shweatypalms” writes, in reply to our recent story about a possible (yeah sure) run for president by the former wrassler, Minnesota governor, and X-Files guest star, with Howard Stern for Veep: Some of these comments can’t be real. Seems like a bunch paid internet trolls. Ventura/Stern would be the best thing in that shit hole called the white house in, idk, 40 fucking years? Poe’s Law strikes again!

Jesse Jackson Shows Ted Cruz How ‘Green Eggs And Ham’ Should be Read

Last night, some weasel-faced Canadian read Green Eggs and Ham to the Senate. Here’s a clip of Jesse Jackson giving the book justice on SNL after Theodore Geisel died in 1991. (It’s not the full version, unfortunately; completists can find a not-great-quality version — which we could not embed, unfortunately — here.)

Assume Wingnuts Furious Over SNL’s Cut Chuck Hagel Sketch

We do not know if the wingnuts are furious about the Chuck Hagel Sadtime Clown Face Hearings Hour, and how SNL cut it before air, probably because it was not funny. (We have just watched it; it was not funny.) We do not know if the wingnuts are furious, because Doktor Zoom is the only person who came to work today, and he is “easily distractible,” so it is pretty much up to just us to run our stupid blog today, and we do not feel like looking at wingnut blogs because we fell yesterday while we were running with our dog (not “out for a run,” because come on, just running like half a block or so, for funsies) and we did not even trip or anything, just all of a sudden our legs did not work anymore, just like when Brenda from Six Feet Under fucked those sailors so hard she got a spinal tumor in Muriel’s Wedding? (YOU’RE TERRIBLE, MURIEL!) And we hurt our wrist and our palms (and our knees), just like Jesus? Read more on Assume Wingnuts Furious Over SNL’s Cut Chuck Hagel Sketch…

Failed SNL Comedienne Victoria Jackson Continues Being Not Racist Or Crazy At All

Victoria Jackson, best known for her invention “The Love Toilet,” continues to wow audiences with her hilarious comedy stylings 20 years after last appearing anywhere in the media entertainment complex. How is she achieving this? With a Colbertian, or maybe Kaufmanian, embodiment of a hilarious character she calls “racist wackjob who is in no way actually Victoria Jackson.” And she has more for us this fine fine newsday!

Lindsey Graham Finally Hanged, Beaten In Effigy In South Carolina

Last week, a “nationally-known pro-life supporter from Washington, D.C.,” Randall Terry, came to Greenville, South Carolina and hanged and beat up effigies of Sen. Lindsey Graham. There is a precious photo gallery of this historical event of lolz, which may prove to be the turning point in our nation’s history. Photo One: Bystanders look on in utter glee. Photo Three: Lindsey’s head appears to be taped to a stuffed duck’s ass. Photo Four: Some delinquent hits the Lindsey pinata. Photo Six: Said delinquent looks evil and also dubious as abortion guy puts his arm around him. ET CETERA. Read more on Lindsey Graham Finally Hanged, Beaten In Effigy In South Carolina…

‘OBAMAR IS A TERRIST’

It didn’t take much to make this funny, and there it was, being funny. “OBAMAR” is now the funniest way to refer to this person, the president. Thanks for a good two years, “nObAmA.” Can we please have more reactions to the SNL television show, right wing bloggers? Newsbusters alone won’t cut it. [NBC] Read more on ‘OBAMAR IS A TERRIST’…
