I Love Betty White





Betty White completely nailed it last night on Saturday Night Live.
It was one of the best SNL shows ever. Every great female SLN alumna over the last decade was there to back her up. The show really was pee-in-your-pants funny.
One thing though...
Jay Z as the "musical" guest? My God, he's even more talentless than Kanye West.
How does sporadically grunting "yeah" while the blond guy sings Forever Young qualify as musical talent?
I can think of no worse musical guest to be on with Betty White than that clown.
Even Michael Buble would have been an improvement, and I'd like to punch him.
Oh well, besides the crusty muffin/NPR skit, the cast singing "Thank You For Being a Friend" and Betty's heavy metal update of the same song was funny enough to cancel out the horrid performance of that dog-faced poser Jay Z.

betty white was adorable! that's the first time i've watched snl in a long time. i think she elevated the material. she clearly had the best comedic timing and delivery of anyone who performed.

(i mentioned comedic timing, and the word verification word is, ironically, paciest!

I think it's time for a new rule. Everyone who does not love Betty White, please choose another species, because you clearly aren't human and we really don't want you.

Problem with the new rule. Betty loves the animules, so I don't think their is any phylum that will take these apocryphal Betty haters.
