Weekend Funny: NBC's Schweddy balls and the St. Pete Chimes
First, the funniest sketch from Thursday's Very Gilly Christmas special offered by Saturday Night Live: Alec Baldwin playing a laid-back chef who presents a particularly meaty and hilariously-named Xmas treat during an NPR segment.
Second, the newspaper has an in-house troupe of volunteer singers which perform a holiday program at offices across timesland. We're called the St. Pete Chimes, and we had a particular bit of fun this year, cranking out Bruce Springsteen's Santa Claus is Coming to Town with a special appearance by keyboard player/gonzo frontman/Poynter Institute vice president and writing teacher extraordinaire, Roy Peter Clark. (I'm playing drums off camera).
So check out both videos and have a great weekend.
