    In conjunction with the Jimmy Fallon thread and great SNL skits, I decided to pose the question...which rendition of Green Eggs and Ham is better.....

    Jesse Jackson on Saturday Night Live

    or

    Van Chancellor on Sports Radio 610's VanOn segment

    It's a tough call, the "doctor who?" shot by Van almost hoists him to the top, but Jesse's sermon style in the middle of his run for the White House has got to be one of the most unexpected things I've ever seen on SNL. Match: Jesse.

    I know Chance will kill me but I think Van On has played out. Last week he read something from Monty Python which might have been funny had it been something familiar. It went straight over my head.

    I'm a big Chance supporter as well, and I don't like Van On. To me it just sounds like they are trying to hard too be funny. It's like the hosts are laughing excessively hard at only moderately amusing material. It's forced.

    Just to consolidate my criticisms into one post, I also think John and Lance kiss Steve McKinney's butt too much. That guy is not funny at all, and they laugh at his stuff like he's Bernie Mac or something. That's called the "let's keep the big dumb jock happy so that he will give us interviews during the season" laugh.

    That Monty Python bit did suck. My bad.

    McKinney's cool by me though...

    Maybe letting Van see or hear something first and then try to get him to imitate it...i.e. rap lyrics. That might be a cool new twist on Van On. At least he's been a good sport about the reads!:D

    I don't know what is worse...the fact that you don't like McKinney, or the fact that you think Bernie Mac is funny. :p
