Saturday Night Live spoofs Coronavirus. 

Blog King, Mass Appeal

NEW YORK — The cast of “Saturday Night Live” poked a little fun at the coronavirus outbreak over the weekend with a “Sands of Modesto” soap opera that goes way overboard with precautions. Actors Daniel Craig and Kate McKinnon are farcical in maintaining a “social distance” to eschew contracting COVID-19 which entails the use of latex gloves and spritzing antiseptic on everything. Daniel also caresses Kate with a prosthetic arm from several feet away before nuzzling and kissing her through a sheet of Plexiglas. The panicky lovebirds partake in Saran Wrap copulation seconds later.

The non-contact sketch concludes with a Barbie Doll catfight and Daniel’s ex-wife (Cecily Strong) sneezing as Daniel and Kate seek an egress through the front door. Give SNL credit. Sometimes you gotta chortle to abnegate crying. But, to some, the coronavirus is hardly a laughing matter.

Dr. James Lawler, a professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Centre, predicts 96 million Americans will become infected and 500,000 will die from the airborne pandemic. Keep in mind, the United States has a population of more than 300 million people. So he’s talking one third.

Yikes!

Dr. Lawler also said the elderly demographic will get hit the hardest.

Given the fact so many victims have died from the disease, was the skit performed in poor taste?

Watch the crazy soap opera.

    I will never look at any of these clips from Saturday night live again. “Have you read the Bible it’s weird?”… No no no The Bible is the word of God. So he was basically just saying that God was weird……… So if they want to choose to blaspheme God on their show? Then I will not ever be a part of it ever again….

  11. @Gretl Blickenstaff: Bye bye, crybaby bitch. Go clutch your bible while rocking yourself to sleep.

    Leave it to SNL for using something that has killed thousands of people in comedy. I wonder how the writer managed to pitch this successfully or what people thought when they approved it.

  24. i bought a bunch of bottled water and canned goods just in case

  25. Hilarious!!!

  26. ihavetotakeashit

    Where is the lefty outrage for SNL making light of the pandemic the Democrats want so bad to happen? Why is everyone so happy and laughing ? Why isn’t the audience booing and screaming in outrage , calling them children and whatever other words the left feels appropriate to call anyone on the right that even remotely says something in the wrong way about anything to do with this, where is the outrage?

  27. The Barbies were a good touch.

  28. MTB Mike & Sons

    Ok, I literally almost died from laughter. Thanks SNL for cheering up the world when everything is always so negative!

  29. Captain Awesome

    That ending made me almost piss myself laughing 😂😂😂

  30. With the corona outbreak going on it seems to me that nobody wants to touch each other ever again. I’m sorry to say this but no touching means: no love, no love means no relationship, no relationship means no bonding.

  31. Inside the Booth

    That was pretty funny. Is SNL getting better now?.. btw nothing beats John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.

  32. Robert Schultz

    Meanwhile, there have been 29,000 deaths from the regular flu this year.

    I’m sure this sketch will be funnier once people stop dying of Covid-19 and we’re all not terrified anymore.

  42. LMFAO right now. So funny!

  43. This Sketch is Ahead of It’s Time.
