Happy Mother’s Day, folks. And as my Mother’s Day gift to you, we’re going to skip right over the Osama Bin Laden cold open because, yeesh. Fortunately, Tina Fey’s fantastic singing monologue with Maya Rudolph put the Cold Open in the reahview. And look! Maya Rudolph, my favorite former “SNL” cast member who I didn’t like at all when they were on the show:

GOP Debate

Tina Fey pulls out the expected Sarah Palin impersonation: “I just hope the lamestream media won’t twist my words my repeating them verbatim.” Oh, and look: Darrell Hammond. What’s he been up to lately?


Hmmm. Meh. But Tina Fey looks great in a mermaid costume.

Digital Short: Jack Sparrow

It’s been a tepid year for Digital Shorts, and who would’ve thought that Michael motherfucking Bolton would be responsible for the year’s best?

Weekend Update Highlights

It’s for Seth Meyers to follow his own self at last week’s White House Correspondent’s Dinner, but he acquitted himself nicely with the Osama jokes. “A free Black Eyed Peas concert?! That’s too true to be good!”

Update: Stefon

Yes, he cracks himself up. And yes, it’s still funny.

Birthing Class

I know these people. I lived in Ithaca, NY for three years. This is how they all give birth.

Discount Prom Wear (Googie Rene)

One of the weaker skits of the night is still better than most skits during other weeks. But mostly, Maya Rudolph is great in this.

Hallmark Mother’s Day

It’s funny because it’s creepy.
