Laughter from my youth

Comedy was a big part of my childhood. Not a day goes by that I don’t remember fondly some or other bits of comedic brilliance from sometime between, say, 1975 and 1985.

Today, I found myself – for reasons I don’t entirely remember – reminiscing about Chevy Chase’s and Garrett Morris’s brilliant recap of the news for the hearing impaired. I was able to find one clip on YouTube to share with THGITW while we were talking about this. But at the end of my day, with a few moments in front of my computer, I found this one, which is better. Because it combines two of my favorite Saturday Night Live memories – Garrett Morris’s interpretation of the news, and the death of Generalissimo Francisco Franco.

(Apologies to those loyal to the ancient ellipse in the upper corner of the screen with sign language interpretation. And to Spanish fascists.)
