"If there's one thing I'm known for, it's my muffin..."
We got a lot of good play from our list of the best-ever SNL fake food ads. And now, I'm thinking there might be cause to do a list of favorite food sketches (Julia Child? Bass-o-Matic?) because over the weekend, Saturday Night Live resurrected one of their classic set-ups--NPR's "Delicious Dish" with Molly Shannon and Ana Gasteyer--just for Betty White's record-setting appearance.
Delicious Dish was the sketch that originally gave us Pete Schwetty's "Schwetty Balls"--inarguably one of the best food sketches in the SNL canon. I think there was also a second Pete Schwetty appearance at some point, but on Saturday night, in celebration of National Dietary Fiber Day, the ladies brought on Florence Dusty from Dusty's Old Time Bakery who came to talk about...her muffin.
You want double entendres? I got more muffin-based double entendres than you can poke a stick at, right here after the link.
Personally, I thought the Betty White/Tina Fey census-taker sketch was funnier, but this one was certainly worth noting--if for no other reason than for the line "No, my muffin hasn't had a cherry since 1939"--and perfect for a quick laugh on a Monday.
