old french whore!

does anyone remember, back when 'saturday night live' was funny? back in high school, we'd always get together at somebody's house to watch it. i was thinking about the situation with waffles, and it brought to mind an old snl skit from 1997 where garth brooks was the guest star. it was a gameshow skit called 'Old French Whore!', where they teamed up high school honor students with old french whores to win fabulous prizes... well, when they're introducing everyone, they get to Cheri O'Teri who is playing an old french whore named Babette who has a sling on. Here's what happens:

Don Barbrell: Let’s meet our contestants! On the blue team we have Kevin Rheaume of Lansing Michigan! Kevin is a senior at East Lansing High School where he’s a proud member of the marching band!

Kevin: Hey Don!

Don Barbrell : Kevin your partner today is a 48 year old prostitute from Marseilles named Babette! Babette I heard you had a funny thing happened to you, uh, on the way to the studios.

Babette : [ With French accent ] Yes, a sailor broke my arm!

Don Barbrell : Ouch! Okay. Well! Good luck today!

it makes me wish i had remembered this sooner, so whenever anyone asked what happened to waffles, i could just say 'a sailor broke her arm' and offer no further explanation.

p.s. - whatever happened to Cheri O'Teri?

I'm not joking.
