    NPR news programs don’t have a sense of humor. Every time NPR tries to be funny, it’s like a firecracker that doesn’t go off. Luckily, we care about NPR news more than its humor. SNL is a comedy show. Humor is its stock in trade. I didn’t even crack a smile once during this adolescent skit. Five minutes of “humor” based on a really silly double entendre. I think this clip is more about the decline of SNL than anything else.

    Ellen, you really didn’t get a kick out of this? This one was even funnier than the skit they did with Alec Baldwin a while back. Sure it is crude but sort of clever. Kind of has a Monty Python feel to it. SNL may be on the way out, I can’t stay up that late anymore. I just saw this because the title post caught my eye. Also, I think that Wait-Wait don’t tell me is hilarious!

    OMG: I thought it was hilarious! Always up for a good laugh and Betty White brings it on. Juvenile humor: you betcha. SNL decline: always did the double e thing.
    The only problem with NPR is it takes itself too seriously.
    Lighten up baby, and let the good times roll.
