Debbie Downer

That old warhorse, Saturday Night Live has pretty much fallen into disrepair and worse, irrelevancy.

However, I don't agree with people who claim that it is completely unfunny and unwatchable. Sometimes, gems do still get produced.

Kid Various was watching a repeat of SNL the other day with Linsay Lohan as the host and the not ready for primetime players put on a sketch entitled Debbie Downer.

The idea of the sketch is that Rachel Dratch plays a character who is always raining on everybody's parade. The sketch itself is pablum. But the great thing about live TV is screw ups. And every once in a while, the cast of SNL is somehow struck by the humour of their sketch and can't keep it together. I love it when the cast can't keep a straight face. Watch the whole thing. But if you have a slow connection, you can read the transcript. Though it's not as funny.

Debbie Downer: By the way -- [ cracks up ] By the way, it's official -- [ pauses extensively to hold in her laughter; Jimmy Fallon is looking at her. Dratch’s voice breaks as she says the next line]: I can't have children! [Jimmy Fallon covers his face with his hands to keep from laughing]

[ drunken trombone sound effect, as camera zooms in on Debbie’s face, which is distraught with laughter. At this point, everyone at the table is cracking up, except for Fred Armisen, who is just smiling to keep from laughing ]
It was just brilliant. Fallon is just looking at Dratch trying desperately not to laugh, waiting for her to give her line and then just loses it afterwards.

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Melissa K. W.
