Favorite Saturday Night Live Skit


Recommended Posts

Long before the movie of the same name, father Beldar (Dan Aykroyd), mother Prymaat (Jane Curtin) and daughter Connie (Laraine Newman), known as the Coneheads from the planet Remulak, found themselves stranded on Earth and started telling everyone they were "French."


They engaged in sexual activity called “honing their cones” and also played a game where they tossed "senso-rings" over each other's cones, which was also sexual in nature.  They forbid daughter Connie to play.


However, Conne paid them back :emotion-14: when she started to date Frank Zappa and from that experience Frank decided he liked “French” women.  :ohmy:


On a side note, Frank Zappa wrote a song titled "Conehead" that was based on the sketches and was on his 1981 album “You Are What You Is.”  :emotion-29:

Big doings tonight with a huge Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary special presented by and featuring this and that and including etc. etc.


No I won't use SNL. I hate it when people turn words into acronyms. Sheer laziness mostly, but in the case of Saturday Night Live, a simple marketing ploy designed to elevate the show into a sorta-hip (look it's an acronym, it must be cool!) something even bureaucrats can get behind.


"OK Johnson, run up a TOTL on the ASCRAM marketing for SNL and let' s do a DTBON (drop the Big Oee now) in COMUS and beyhond!"


OK grumpy Thebes, don't forget that Eddie Murphy (Eddie Murphy!!!)'s making his first appearance in 30 year.s.


So let's get excited.


I am I am!!!!!!!!!!!, you say.


So what's your favorite skit, not actor, skit?


Me I'm going old school:


Can anyone say "Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger!!!!!

Interesting you bring that up Thebes. Once when I was in Chicago I ambled into the Billy Goat tavern, quite by chance.  So I ordered a cheeseburger because I was hungry, and automatically asked for fries to go with it.  The guy behind the counter says "no fries, chips."  After a long second it hit me and I realized where I was.  I still laugh about it today.
