Other possible combinations: Obama or Bush? Washington or Jefferson? Cruise or Travolta? Depp or Pitt? Bert or Ernie?

  1. Alec always has great timing....although the idea of this skit is funnier than the execution. WTF happened to Baldwin's upper lip and face? His pained squint and rubbery upper lip make him look like DeNiro.

  4. I was waiting for "Anderson Cooper or Ben Maisani?" but it didn't happen... guess they didn't have the guts to do it..

  5. yes the circle of life was the best part. I hope by leaving out cruise & travolta etc. they are teeing up for another round!

  7. The "debate", at the opening of the show, was too funny!

  8. Hysterical. Love Alec Baldwin.

  9. It was kind of funny but I've always been confused with this straight obsession of who's the top and who's the bottom in gay relationships, especially since so many (most?) of us are versatile.

  10. @ CHRIS: it's a vestige of the heterosexist assumption that one is acting 'masculine' (penetrating) and one is acting 'feminine' (being penetrated). This is exactly the reason classic Feminism failed to understand gay people, it always insisted that the penetrated man was being violated as a woman.

    Straight conservatives and feminists alike have never been able to wrap their minds around versatility (even within straight couples -- it ain't just lesbians buying strap-ons, and it ain't just gay men and straight women buying dildos and butt plugs, if you know what I mean)...

  11. Alec Baldwin or Steve Martin?

  12. That was funny

  13. I always wonder about Lance Bass or Pedro Andrade. That is a tough one.

  14. @Streps: I'd kind of figured there was a heterosexist component but you make a very interesting point about feminism as well. Thanks for the input!

  15. Matt Damon or Ben Affleck?

    Trey Parker or Matt Stone?

  16. Ben Affleck for sure.

  17. A couple of the ideas that legal didn't let them use:
    Ryan Seacrest and Simon What-his-name
    Tom Cruise and John Travolta

  18. That was actually really funny. It's refreshing to see it when comedians and comedy shows get "gay jokes" right. The key is in laughing with gay people, not at them, and this succeeds in that effort.

  19. The only line that made me laugh was "Oprah Winfrey!" the rest...meh. Had to have been written by straight dudes.

  20. Oh, I think they could get some sponsors.

  21. @Ryan, BIG AGREE. Thankfully, when you're in the hands of Bill Hader and Alec Baldwin, their instincts are *spot on* on how to make the kind of gay jokes that gay people would laugh at, instead of feeling made fun of. // Hate to say it, but this is a bit of a milestone. Gay sex jokes on something as mainstream as SNL? We've come a long way...
