Saturday Night Live Sketches that Pushed the Limit

billkozyBillkozy on 03/17/2009

SaturdayNightLiveSketchesthatPushedtheLimit Photo In December 2008, Saturday Night Live took a lot of flak, once again, this time for a sketch which depicted New York State Governor David Paterson. Fred Armisen portrayed the governor, who, squinting his left eye like Paterson's, gets confused on which way to face his wheeled swivel chair at the desk, and later in the skit, holds an unemployment chart upside down.

The thing I actually appreciated about the depiction that hasn't seemed to get any mention was Armisen's depiction of the governor as a joke-teller punctuating his paragraphs with a joke in the intonation of a Catskills comic, and pausing as though waiting for the laughs to stop.

In any event, the president of the National Federation of the Blind of New York despised the sketch, criticizing it heavily. Apparently the governor, who usually takes a joke well, didn't appreciate the skit either. Here's a quiz that takes a look back on SNL sketches over the show's illustrious history that irked a significant number of people and got the show into some hot water.

Good luck, and please rate the quiz afterward if you have a chance. Thanks. And now, "Live...from's Saturday Night Live Sketches that Pushed the Limits!"
