In homage to Justin Timberlake’s “Home Run” episode last Saturday below are a few of my favorite SNL sketches from back in the day:
1. “Buh-Weet Sings”
Eddie’s reign is really when I got down with SNL. Truth moment – watching it now I get a little twinge ’cause u know I’m like a politically correct black panther now but when I was a kid this ish was hiiiiiiii-arious.
“Wookin’ Pa Nub”
2. Mister Robertson’s Neighborhood
This skit (kinda) redeemed “Buh-Weet” because umm at least here we are addressing socio-economic issues of living in the ‘hood… Okay okay and some dysfunctional ish as well. Sigh. Whatever – STILL FUNNY!
“It’s one hell of a day in my neighborhood, a hell of a day for a neighbor. Would you be mine? Could you be mine? I hope I get to move in your neighborhood some day. The problem is when I move in y’all move away.” #Truuuuue
3. “Derek Stevens Chopping Broccoli”
My friend and I used to LOVE this clip and would fall apart in giggles re-enacting it. Awww childhood… 🙂
“She’s choppin’ broccoli!” #DanaCarvey!!
4. “Threw It On The Ground”
This one is here because like “Choppin’ Broccoli” this was another skit another friend and I would recite endlessly – as adults – and also fall into fits of laughter. Awww adulthood. 🙂
“Happy Birthday to the GROUND!!!”
5. “Katie Couric Interviews Sarah Palin”
“Katie I’d like to use one of my lifelines.” #Awesome!
Note: I didn’t say these were the best SNL skits EVER, I said these were MY favorite SNL skits so you should feel free to put your own list together. Also I have sooooooo many more so there will definitely be a Part 2 (and probably a Part 3). 🙂
Oh and in case you haven’t been checking in for the last few days, I’m helping my mom (the fabulous Gladys Muhammad) with a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs so DONATE!
