Why am I showing this today? Well, first of all, it's the Friday before a holiday weekend, so I can do any damn thing I'd like, thank you very much. Second of all, it's cute. Third, it's fun to see a young Lorne Michaels. Fourth, I don't think I can ever recall him carrying a sketch on his own, and fifth, I love that he nearly gets the giggles in this. He doesn't quite break character, but Lorne Michaels -- the consummate professional -- curls that lip a little, like he's about to laugh during a sketch.

Oh, and sixth, the sketch is actually amusing.

Bonus: A few years ago, for giggles, the guys over at MightyGodKing wrote an alternative history of The Beatles, in which they accepted Michaels' very generous offer.
