This barely seems worth mentioning, but Taylor Lautner hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend and *fart noise* *both thumbs down* *dogs barking* *long whistle and explosion noise* *bom bom bom bommm wooooo*

I was looking for a laundry list of things to complain about with this episode, but it was the same complaint repeated several times: painfully long skit with an unfunny premise. Lather, rinse, repeat. The only thing that kept this from being as bad as the January Jones episode was (a) the part in the monologue where Lautner showed the clip of him doing nothing during Kanye West’s interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the VMAs, and (b) the PGA Tour press conference skits with Jason Sudeikis (video below). They were sharp, well-executed, brief, and wisely broken up and sprinkled throughout the show.

You wanna know why I rarely write more than three paragraphs in a post? Well, yes, because I’m lazy. There’s that. But also because if what I write isn’t funny, at least I didn’t waste your time. It’s a pretty easy concept, and you’d think “SNL” might catch on after 35 years.
