Propaganda Vacuum Unexpectedly Sucking Will Ferrell Back To SNL

Breitbart reports that Will Ferrell will, in a move that surprises no one except Derek Smalls, trot out his George W. Bush impersonation on 12 May’s SNL installment. Maybe it won’t appear to be Yet Another Cheap Distractor, as the administration grasps at every straw to distract from #OccupyResoluteDesk‘s sucktacular performance.

Maybe we’ll at least get a Celebrity Jeopardy installment, or some cowbell out of it. Unfortunately, one expects the episode will be as humorless as Hulu’s embed policy, replete with alternative lifestyles and political sucker punches. The TiVo barely renders SNL watchable anymore.

    One of the most over rated comedians of our time. And a commie to boot.

    “Live, from the Whale’s Vag, it’s Saturday Night!”

    I’m still hoping they kill two birds with one stone and make the Anchorman sequel “Canal De Mi Padre”.

    I never did particularly like Will Ferrell. Highly overrated, with the one exception being his Alex Trebek, which I have to admit was pretty funny.

  • Adobe_Walls

    You can always tell when he wrote the material on SNL or his movies because the bit goes two or ten times longer than funny.

    Will Ferrel  back in my attention.  NOW Obama has something to answer for.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Will who?

  • AnonymousDrivel

    Maybe he’ll go waaay out on a limb and really push the envelope this time. I dunno, seems like he could try “the loud, obnoxious, drunken, stupid fratboy” role. I know, I know, a clear stretch, but he just. might. have it in him.

    He was mildly entertaining in his younger days, I never saw the appeal that made him some sort of “B” grade “star” at all.  

  • KingShamus

    Remember when Will Ferrell didn’t go out of his way to piss off half his audience?

    Yeah, I miss those times.

  • Pathfinder’s wife

    Those were the only times when he was remotely funny.

  • richard mcenroe

    The only time I ever thought he was funny was in the remake of “The Producers” and even there he was no Kenneth Mars.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Nobody could out-Mar Kenneth Mars.

  • M. Thompson

     He’s funniest when he’s not in a Will Ferrell role.
