Comedy: SNL Shows How They Get… How They Get To Sesame Street… Being So F***ed Up (Video)

I haven’t seen “Joker” yet, but I am going to. I dunno about this “Grouch” flick though. Mainly because I think I like Dave Chappelle’s take on Sesame Street better (go watch that part from his “Killing Them Softly” stand-up, again, after this, here).

I mean… The Count HAD to be a PIMP; not Snuffaluffagus, who stayed smacked out, cramming that booger sugar up his trunk. In fact, wasn’t Big Bird the only one who could see & talk to Snuff? Yeah, Big Bird was a ‘bird’ alright (just like Reggie Bo is a ‘pound’). HA!
