THE PLAGUE THAT ATE MY FIRST-BORN

An anonymous reader posted a comment on my March 31st entry "Good Catholics Live in Chelsea." According to Anonymous (who also goes by the name Milty): "We are suffering a plague that feeds off the crop known as funny." I tend to agree.

And how appropriate it is to talk of plagues when we are so close to the Passover holiday! There have been a number of plagues in recent memory (Jimmy Kimmel, Larry the Cable Guy, etc).

But the number one plague this year is SNL's Lazy Sunday. The real issue with this video is not that it sucks. That's fine. It's even expected. The problem instead lies in the fact that so many people, including YOU, loved the clip so much that they felt the need to post it on their AIM profile, or refer to it on the Facebook, or email it to me.

What is so funny about buying muffins? Or paying with ten dollar bills? Or Google Maps?

I don't know, but apparently the rest of the world does.

russell, i see on your stat-counter that you have had 303 unique visitors to this site since launch, which means that you're very close to catching up with the lazy sunday people.
and 303 is a palindrome! cool!

The Natalie Portman one is better. That one, I enjoyed.
