One of my favorite “no laugh funny” SNL skits in a long time. Because the attitude is so ’50s cultish, I suppose, and indifferent to the fact that 98% of SNL viewers don’t know and couldn’t care less who Vincent Price, Ed Wood, Katherine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe or James Dean were, and therefore couldn’t possibly get the no-laugh jokes. I didn’t even chuckle at the humor — I just sat there stone-faced — but I thought it was funny.

And I don’t know what it is about Andy Samberg doing his Mark Wahlberg-talking-to-animals bit, but this is the thing that will define Wahlberg among joke-tellers for the rest of his life, like “you dirty rat” did for James Cagney and “Judy, Judy, Judy” did for Cary Grant.
