Tina Fey Proclaims ‘Sheet Caking’ To Be Weekend’s Hottest Activity

I don’t really need an excuse to devour cake this weekend, so I’m down with Tina Fey’s sheet caking idea.

The acclaimed actress appeared on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update to make her case for this gluttonous activity. Fey would rather we go “sheet caking,” or devouring whole cakes, instead of attending white supremacist protests this weekend.

To showcase what exactly she means, Fey brings out her own massive dessert to consume live. She called on us all to order cakes with the American flag on them and just eat them as alternatives to violence. Tina then proceeded to go sheet caking while blasting white nationalists in the hilarious SNL skit.

Racist rallies similar to those in Charlottesville are occurring this weekend. Those events inspired violence and hate, so Tina Fey’s message is more than just a comedic one. As a result of her message and hilarity, sheet caking has gone viral across Twitter.

Even if we can’t consume whole cakes like Tina can, stopping bigotry, racism, and white supremacy is still a message we can get behind. So don’t hate: eat a cake instead.

SNL Partners with It’Sugar, Thus Schweddy Balls Now Exist

Sweddy-Balls-SNL

Celebrating Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary, the long-running show has partnered with candy chain It’Sugar to create more than 50 fictional snacks and novelty gifts throughout SNL’s history. Yep, Pete’s famous Schweddy Balls and Colon Blow cereal are now real.

Schweddy Balls were made famous years ago on a classic SNL sketch featuring Molly Shannon and Alec Baldwin as Pete Schweddy, the creator of the eponymous balls. Colon Blow Cereal was also introduced during SNL’s heyday by the late Phil Hartman, a man who valued a high-fiber diet.

Also among the list are Stefon’s Pop n’ Rock Party Bars and Schmitts Gay Beer. The items will be available at more than 60 of the It’Sugar locations as well as online Sept. 13. Christmas is only a few months away, who wouldn’t love a sack of Schweddy Balls?

SNL Brings the REAL Starbucks Experience Home [VIDEO]

snl-starbucks-spoof

Alright Starbucks-addicts — we know you like your non-fat, soy, venti caramel whatevers — but how many of you would actually want a bona-fide Starbucks experience at home?

After all, the company’s new at-home coffee machine, The Verismo System, promises just that — all “with uncompromising quality and push-button simplicity.”

But late-night comedy show Saturday Night Live isn’t so sure about having a mini-Starbucks in your kitchen. Their short commercial spoof of the Verismo shows that having it might actually be a little bit too much like the REAL Starbucks experience — you know, with the unapologetic barista that gets your name and order wrong.

Curious about what this less-than-enthusiastic Starbucks machine has got in store? Watch the video below.

‘SNL’ Paula Deen is Hilariously Depicted by Kristen Wig

Kristen Wiig definitely makes a sexy, hilarious and ultimately convincing Paula Deen in this week’s episode of “Saturday Night Live.” The skit covers the recent sexual harassment allegations levied against Deen, her diabetes diagnosis and her use of the “N word,” which she claims to have never used (“nutrition”).

Wait ’till you hear Wiig/Deen describe diabetes as “the sugars,” old people in homes having “the shakes” and proceed to butter her hair while she talks with Seth Meyers. Paula Deen ignorance and hilariousness at its finest.

Here’s a look:

Saturday Night Live Takes a Shot at ‘High Fructose Corn Syrup’

Saturday Night Live sets up a spoof commercial on the hazy facts surrounding High Fructose Corn Syrup. Who should we believe? The mother with the facts, or the scientists? HFCS creates fat-producing empty calories that your body stores away, to later be used in the growth of your beer belly, or muffin tops. I guess either way you look at it, good or bad, most things with HFCS taste great, so grab some Sunny D and have a laugh. (Thx Hulu.com/SNL)

SNL’s “Weekend Update” talks with Four Loko creator Chris Hunter

Last night, actor Jason Sudeikis tackled the role of Chris Hunter, one of the creators of Four Loko and made a guest appearance on the “Weekend Update” portion of Saturday Night Live. Not only did he comment on the product itself, he introduced several new products including the Organ Blaster (a mix of boxed wine, milk, buffalo sauce, and fiberglass) and the Amy Winehouse (courageously combining doughnuts, K-Y Jelly, cigarettes, and a horse tranquilizer), the latter not meant for consumption, but for pouring on the skin and letting it seep for a different-style buzz.
