Is SNL funny right now? I honestly have no idea. Mainly because our TV habits are now so bizarre, a mishmash of movies, Netflix and picking up shows after the fact online. We don’t even have cable. At all. I know. Poor Declan.
You know what is fun? Watching Declan watch TV. When we do bother to watch it live, which is, as I mentioned, never, he stops DEAD when the commercials come on. Because Declan NEVER SEES THEM. That thing *we* try so hard to fast forward through that we invented DVRs? My kid’s generation is actually interested in. “WAIT. STOP. I *love* this one.” And that’s like some random truck driving up a hill in a sunset, even. Not the stock broker babies. Or the sock puppet. Or anything I would think he would find remotely interesting. I suppose it’s just interesting because he rarely sees them.
But back to SNL. Remember watching that show as a kid? Well, maybe you don’t because I am officially old (41), but so many of their skits remain part of my daily language. Everything from the first crew through my college years in the early 90’s. It’s like the soundtrack of my life, from a humor perspective.

And now I can’t wait to show Declan the Bass-o-matic commercial.
Or Happy Fun Ball.
Or Bad Idea Jeans.
