We need a laugh.

I was a devoted fan of The New Show during its brief run. The sketch with John Candy running a food repair show was comedy gold.

Is there a You Tube link for that?

Forgive me if I missed out on some kind of inside joke. Or snark?

[3] Candy just sells that concept beautifully. What a terrific sketch performance.

[4] Don't get yer meaning.

It's interesting watching the stuff Lorne Michaels did during his exile from SNL - this show, with Dave Thomas and Buck Henry as the star regulars and then lots of familiar faces from SCTV, SNL & elsewhere as guests, Steve Martin's "Best Show Ever" prime time special, which also had a distinct 70s SNL feel to it...

Huzzah, another snow day!

I'm sick of snow days.
