I have a sense of humor. I swear to God, I do. But, damn it, rape jokes are never funny.
Even though the opening skit of this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” starred the only two black men in the cast as inmates at Rikers Island meeting accused sexual predator Dominique Strauss-Kahn (played by Taran Killiam), I was willing to go with it. Slightly racist casting there, but who knows, maybe they were the two cast members most enthusiastic about the material? Anyway, the skit was pretty funny: Keenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah played two guys locked in a cell bickering about the International Monetary Fund. I giggled a little, because it was silly.

Woo-hoo! Tina Fey is returning to her old stomping grounds, “Saturday Night Live,” this weekend.

This was, err, while Tina was doing her famous impersonation of her. The fact that she would still offer that is almost enough to make me like Sarah Palin. For a minute, anyway.

hosting “Saturday Night Live
” could have been a hot, steaming pile of Disney dog doo … but it turns out the girl is pretty funny! Not only did she sing about her little bong incident during her opening monologue, but the girl gets mad props for making fun of herself in Vanessa Bayer
‘s skit, “The Miley Cyrus Show.” I don’t think I
could listen to someone mocking me and my dad to my face for five minutes straight. Miley did a kickass job channeling Justin Bieber
‘s swagger, too.
And now I’m going to go wash my brain out with soap because I just said, like, six nice things about Hannah Montana. [NBC] Keep reading »
