They even got the make up done well. Besides the comical replay of the Meet The Parents scene, they each looked liked their respective characters. Great performances for sure, but the writer who though up the skit had a genius moment.

"Science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time - when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers arc in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.

On Politics: A Carnival of Buncombe


“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”

Trevor Noah on Hannity claiming Cohen wasn't his lawyer. The part I bolded was killer.

Quote

Responding to Hannity’s convoluted explanation, Noah asked Tuesday, “He wasn’t your lawyer, he just answered your legal questions? How do you not know the definition of lawyer when your head is shaped like a dictionary?”

“Seriously, giving legal input and perspective is exactly what a lawyer does,” the host continued. “Hannity might as well have come out and said, ‘He was my lawyer but just the tip.’

And yet even as Hannity denied giving professional legal help from Cohen, the Fox News host maintained that their conversations should be protected by attorney-client privilege. “So he’s not your lawyer. All you had was a few chit-chats about real estate, but you definitely want attorney-client privilege, you definitely want that,” Noah said. “What the fuck did you bury under that house? I’m just saying I’ve had a lot of conversations about real estate, at the end I never went, ‘This never happened.’”

“You know what gets me is how casually Hannity is trying to minimize his connection to Michael Cohen like it means nothing, especially when every other day of the year he’s the guy who can bake a conspiracy cake out of nothing more than an egg and the word ‘Hillary,’” Noah said, throwing to clips of Hannity promoting the “Clinton Crime Family,” the “Mueller Crime Family,” and the “Comey Crime Family.”

Ode to Sean Hannity
by John Cleese

Aping urbanity
Oozing with vanity
Plump as a manatee
Faking humanity
Journalistic calamity
Intellectual inanity
Fox Noise insanity
You’re a profanity
Hannity

I think that's a parody of something fairly well known, but I can't place it. But I have on my shelves a 1930s publication, The Wonder Gift Book for Children, in which there is a play in which one of the songs is in exactly that meter and rhyme-scheme. I wonder if Cleese has seen that too?
Reality is a hallucination caused by alcohol deprivation.

Only Satan can rebuke sin. The righteous don't know enough.

God is not dead. He was merely voted out of office.

You can do anything with anybody if you just save them the trouble of thinking.
