Has Saturday Night Live ever been funny?

No, seriously.

When was the last time it made you laugh out loud?

I think I might’ve laughed when John Belushi dressed up like a bee, and maybe when Bill Murray sang in the shower.

I might’ve snickered when Eddy Murphy pretended to be Mr. Rogers, and when Mike Myers did his “lookin at my bum” thing and Dana Carvey’s church lady.

I might’ve chuckled when Will Farrell danced in the cheerleader sketch and Molly Shannon showed her underwear.

MAYBE Tina Fey had one good joke on Weekend Update, and so did Seth Myers, and Dan Ackroyd, but mostly I waited for the commercials to be done, hoping for a laugh, and getting nothing.

This is American history, in a nutshell.
