Monday morning in my parents’ house, I come across a CD I burned years ago with several SNL sketches on it, including the classic Matt Foley motivational speaker skit. I then decided to share the laughs with my mother.
Here’s how it unfolded:
Me: “Do you know Chris Farley?”
Mom: “The fat guy?”
Me: “Yeah, do you know him?”
Mom: “He’s dead.”
Well, that about sums it up, don’t it? Rest in peace, funny man.
Sometime that same day, someone in my house may or may not have called our lame-duck Prime Minster “Olmart”. For only the best deals in scandals and corruption…it’s Ol-Mart!
My trip to America’s almost half over. Are you guys looking after the beach for me?
