“Funny, harmless, harmless jokes, right Che?”
Last night was Saturday night live‘s annual Christmas episode with presenter Kristen Wiig and musical guest Dua Lipa.
The episode was full of highlights, but my favorite piece was during the “Weekend Update” that was featured SNLThe latest holiday tradition of Coanchors Colin Jost and Michael Che joking each other so that they could read them for the first time on the air.
The ongoing narrative goes that Michael goes out of his way to shame Colin, usually by getting him to tell racist jokes.
This year, Colin had some zingers of his own, and it seemed like this year’s joke swap might finally be a tie.
But nothing could beat the joke Michael Colin had said about his own wife Scarlett Johansson.
I gasped, I stuttered, I laughed happily.
The audience loved it, Michael looked like a kid on Christmas morning, and Colin was pretty nervous.
You have to imagine Michael sitting on this for a while, waiting for the perfect opportunity to say it.
But it’s all fun! Michael and Scarlett are likely friends and hopefully she has the sense of humor to see why this is a perfect joke.
