"So you're a dog, right? What's that all about?"
I cackled like a besotted hyena when I saw Andy Samberg's "Mark Wahlberg Talks to Animals" segment last night on Saturday Night Live. And I've laughed just as hard while repeatedly viewing this clip today. Don't get me wrong: I like the political stuff on SNL so far this season. But there's something almost Monty Pythonesque about the off-the-wall, WTF absurdity of this sketch. It helps, of course, that Samberg has Wahlberg nailed. But it also helps that... well, his co-stars are so delightfully deadpan.
