hahaha the reign of seth the horrible is at an end!
One time, there was a little train who had to pull a giant load of scrap metal up the mountain. He had never pulled such a heavy load in his life, and so when he left the valley, his little wheels said, ‘I hope I can. I hope I can. I hope I can. I hope I can.’ But, before long, he picked up speed and his little wheels said, ‘I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.’ Soon, the little train was whizzing right up the mountain, and now the wheels said, ‘I know I can! I know I can! I know I can! I know I can! Heart attack! Heart attack! Heart attack! Heart attack! Oh, my God, the pain! Oh, my God, the pain! OH, MY GOD, THE PAIN! I left my pills in the roundhouse!! I LEFT MY PILLS IN THE ROUNDHOUSE!!’ And he died.
Now, normally that would be the end of the story, but the little train was on the mountain - on an incline - and it began to roll backwards, slowly at first, of course.. but it got faster and faster, until he was just barreling down the mountain, his wheels just barely on the tracks.. of course, he didn’t say anything this time, because he was dead. Now, in the valley, who should be sitting on the tracks - Freddy the Frog, and wouldn’t you know? He’s facing the wrong way, so he never sees the train coming at him at 180 miles an hour. Fortunately, Freddy hops off the tracks just in time, and the train misses him, hitting, instead, a school bus, killing 150 - no one over the age of 9.
Now, when the state police arrive at the scene, one of them looks around at the carnage and grizzly mutilation spots and says, “You know, it’s wrong that so many human beings should be dead, and this frog should still be alive.”
And so, they beat him to death with a softball bat.
The artwork from our new SNL tribute show is NOW ONLINE! Check out all the amazing work here:
Seth Meyers on the SNL cast members he enjoys writing for (via billhaderprofessionalliferuiner)
well yeah Seth, of course they make it better. Because they are funny, talented performers and you are a no-talent hack.
Jane Curtin and Dan Aykroyd doing Point-Counterpoint on Weekend Update, 17th March 1979.
am I the only one who thinks Jane’s line was funnier than Dan’s?
Weekend Update with Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon
then Fallon left and we got left with Fey and Poehler still good
then Fey left and they brought in Seth Meyers, which was the turning point into shitsville
then poehler left and meyers decided to just do it solo
and (what seems like) 50 years later
he’s still there
still the head writer
still at the update desk
still doing the “really?!?!” segment
still stinking up studio 8h
still ageing horribly
Oh, so they still do the “really?!?!” segment?
Even After Amy left?
gonna just keep writing these to give yourself more air-time?
gonna keep beating that dead horse until it whinnies?
it baffles me
watching these SNL episodes
I want to see the sketches they cut between dress and air
I mean, if THIS is what made the cut I wanna see what didn’t
I assume a sketch where Taran Killam reads from the the dictionary or something?

That’s a good point. Every year SNL gets more competition that it never had to deal with. Especially in it’s heyday, it pretty much had a monopoly on ‘alternative’ comedy that “teh young people” wanted. Now it has to compete with soo much other stuff. I can appreciate SNL nostalgia as much as the next guy, but I think that it’s not a substitute for good material, and it seems like many SNL writers don’t understand that.
I get that they have a lot to keep up with, but I think they could do better at it if they had some freshness. I think their best bet for the short term would be to try a play at bringing in essentially a whole new cast, and many new writers. (although I’m not as up to date on all the writers as I should be).
I don’t think its controversial to say they’ve gone downhill since Meyers took over for Tina Fey, and they need a shake up.
