I could make SNL funny again

Beyond the standard websites everyone not living under a rock frequents, my most visited website is Entertainment Weekly. Judge if you will. is a round-the-clock portal for all things entertainment related--movies, TV, books, music, plays, games, websites, etc. I've received the hard-copy magazine at my house every week for the last six years. (And actually gave it as a wedding gift to someone I knew would appreciate it.) My secular Bible if you will.

EW is more than just celebrity gossip--in fact it doesn't cater much to that crowd. Instead, I frequent for the zippy television recaps, opinionated columns lambasting certain areas of "pop culture", and information on how the things I enjoy (shows, people, movies, books) are fairing.

Rarely do I throw my hat into the ring of online forums. Thoughtful responses are few and far between; sandwiched between spam-generated comments, racist remarks, and political filibustering (yes! even here!). Last night however, in a moment of boredom somewhere between the Celtics losing to the Suns and a slow chapter of The Constant Gardner, I popped over to

A request for skits for Taylor Swift to perform on Saturday Night Live? Well why not. And they lead the follow-up story with my idea. Brilliant. Now if that skit shows on tonight's broadcast, I'll truly know that I can see the future. You see, about 15 years ago, I had a legitimate dream about self-checkout at the grocery store. I nearly fell over the first time I saw one. If there's a mention of Taylor Swift and Stuff White People Like tonight, check back here for lottery numbers on Monday.
