Boston Globe plays the straight man for SNL.
I have to admit that I found Kenneth Singletary’s write-up for the Boston Globe about a Saturday Night Live skit involving Rhode Island to be more humorous than the skit itself:
Singletary plays the straight man (that’s a comedy term, for the woke out there) with his straight-news report:
Strong looks worried.
The newscast continues. “I think some areas will be completely flattened. We should expect many, many casualties,” Culkin says.
We learn that the Boy Scouts have been washed out to sea, and the storm is still raging.
And yes, Culkin is wearing his turkey hat.
“I decided to keep it on in case you wanted to hear the rest of the rap after the storm.”
