I'm About To Make It Rainn!

As you all know, I'm not a big fan of SNL anymore. It's just not funny. And with NBC posting all of their best clips on the YouTube.com, it makes it pretty easy to catch the good skits.

This week; however, was hosted by Rainn Wilson (aka, Dwight T. Schrute) and I wanted to watch it. But I forgot about it because of my new big screen TV (tired of hearing about that yet?). Fortunately, hardly anybody watched it and NBC put some of the best clips back on the Internets.

So I started by watching the monologue. It was pretty damn funny.

The irony of that skit is that SNL needed to use material from another funny show to be funny themselves. On a side note, how bad is Kenan at impressions life. I can do a better impression of Stanley and I'm only half-black. Honestly, I think they only reason they put him in Fat Albert is because they didn't have to pay for a fat suit. That, and his love for puddin' pops.

But I digress, in the clips I have seen, Dwight was pretty funny. So, in an effot to help you catch up, I'm going to make it Rainn on you with all kinds of clips from Dwight. As is usual with SNL, I'll let you decide what was funny and what was [censored].

The first clip is called White Possum Scream, a short based on Samuel L. Jackson's new movie Black Snake Moan. As a side note, I first saw the trailer to that movie on the opening night of Snakes on a Plane. Everyone in the theater cheered when SLJ showed up on screen and the cheering continued pretty much throughout the entire trailer, so all I knew about the movie was that it featured a half-naked, chained up Christina Ricci and an SLJ that looked like hell. Then the title was Black Snake Moan. Seemed like a porn to me. Now I find out that its going to have a plot as well. Speaking of porn, if you ever wanted to see Dwight in a diaper (you know, if you're down for stuff like that), you'll get that chance with this clip.

The next clip is a SNL Digital Short. They've had some success in the past, so I had high hopes for this one. It is entitled Business Marketing. I think the Tiger is the funniest part.

I have to say that I was disappointed with that last one. I'm not sure if it is still the Kenan hangover from White Possum Scream or from watching so many god damn Good Burger clips trying to find one that was funny and showed Kenan. I thought they could have done better. It was ok, though.

Anyway, I didn't want to leave you with a sour note, so here are a couple more clips featuring Dwight. The first is Dwight and Jim on The Ellen Show, which has a surprising number of clips on the YouTube.com. It's a pretty funny listening to them, features a clip of The Office where Michael says he knows a bunch of 14-year-old girls and also features a dance-off between Dwight and Jim where they are doing the same things that Shaq-daddy was doing at the all-star game practice (apparently that's pretty popular). Good times.

If you didn't get your fill (or want to waste more time before you go back to doing whatever it is you do), you can check out this clip of just Dwight on Ellen (not literally, of course, because Ellen likes the box). The funny part of this clip is that Dwight owns a picuture of monkeys holding things that look like dildos.

Hope you enjoyed wasting your time today. I usually let you find the content in the links on your own, but you prolly, and by prolly I mean really, should go watch the video links at Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci. Just saying.

And, no, I don't watch Ellen - ever - but YouTube.com has a ton of clips...

It's not too late! Just delete Katie's comment, edit the post, and go on secure in the fact that the Skeet Thrower is infallible.

And all will be well.

The internetz will forgive, only because you're such a good patron and you bring many wonderful youtube moments to the forefront.
