    OMG that brings up memories. Did he do that on SNL? When he drinks from the cup in the middle I almost lost it. If anyone hasn't seen it, here's the link to the video:

    Very early on there was a parady of a Mercedez commercial with a German jeweler splitting a diamond while riding in a Benz. In the original ad the jeweler says at the end (with a German accent), "Perfekt!" In the SNL version it was a rabbi performing a circumcision, "Poifect!"

    Much more recent, the "Chronicles of Narnia" rap.

    Garret Morris as Chico Rivera (?), "Baseball has been very good to me"

    Steve Martin "What the hell is that thang?"

    Chevy Chase as President Ford trimming the tree.

    Smigel's "Ex-Presidents" with Bush Sr. always in bed with Barbara when the call to action comes in.

    Belushi with the bee antennae headpiece (Mexican Killer Bees).

    Aykroyd's "Jane you ignorant slut"

    The Roman Barfatorium (Burt Reynolds, I think).

    Oh the memories. So painful to watch what it has become recently.

    Another of my favorites was the parody of the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings with Nealon and Carvey and Hartman and Farley playing Senators Biden and Thurmon and Kennedy and Heflin.

    For all you people mentioning early NRFPT Players skits, have you rewatched them at any time in the last 30 years? They aren't as funny as we thought at the time or remember them to be.

    Though Lorne Michaels earnestly offering $1,000 for a Beatles reunion and then later telling George Harrison that he couldn't pay more than $250 for one Beatle does still crack me up.

    I also saw The Rutles again not long ago -- a pre-Spinal Tap mocumentary about the "Pre-Fab Four" -- which was a SNL/Monty Python mash-up that has held up surprisingly well over time.

    Amen. I'm not saying the show is superior now, but go to

    http://snltranscripts.jt.org/77/1977.phtml

    and look at some of the rundowns of the episodes from that season. There's TONS of forgettable crap from those days too.

    You can do the same with any of the seasons, from 1 to 32. We only tend to remember the stuff played to death on clip shows, not the endless humorless Albert Brooks "short films" and other crap that plagued the first few seasons.

    Don't get me wrong, there was brilliant cutting edge stuff from that era too. But I just really don't get the arguments of when people say "...ain't as funny as it used to be" with this show. If that's your personal preference, fine ... but when you do go back and watch a late 70's episode in it's entirety - I bet you'll be pretty disappointed.

    The one where an office loosened the dress code so that employees could wear patriotic items, probably post-911. Will Ferrell was wearing an Old Glory thong...and nothing else.

    That was great. :D

    Found it! :D
