A social gathering you’d rather not make it to? Strap in, because your usual excuse of having “that thing, what thing?, that thing thing, gotta run byeee” just took on a whole new meaning. SNL: having procrastinators’ backs since 1975. And given that Movie Fridays strives to fulfill the same noble purpose, here are some of our most favorite (among the more recent) SNL skits. More recent, because there’s no way you can play favorites when talking about the Kristen Wiig (and Bill Hader, and Andy Samberg) era, although the current cast also is the bee’s knees.

Tell you what, let’s do the latter thing together, in a new chapter of our The Guardian’s pass notes wannabe series Movie Chitter-Chatter.
