It's funny because it's racist.

Definition of a love/hate relationship:

Saturday Night Live just isn't what it used to be. I mean, nothing beats early SNL. SNL sucks.
Did you see that thing on SNL? It was hilarious.

I for one dislike SNL mostly because their idea of "funny" is staging actors who think too highly of themselves being funny. It's like watching a high school talent show featuring the members of the drama club and football team portraying their favorite teachers. They are people who are un-challenged, and therefore unchallenging.

But occasionally, they get it perfect.

Wow, somebody who thinks the original SNL or the old SNL cast will always be the best -how original. I'm surprised he didn't comment that Monty Pythons is the greatest variety show in all of television history.

Seriously, have you ever seen the old sketches? Yes, agreed, there are definitely some amazingly hilarious sketches w/ the old cast but 9 outta 10 sketches from the old-timey SNL drags on to test your patience. The "new" SNL is so much more agreeable to the short attention spans of well EVERYBODY.
