Who knows what they tried to turn me into? I remember most they kept blow-drying my hair. I was maybe 25. My action was kissing a girl. Oh, I was so nervous!''

Ridiculous, over-the-top, but fully committed - that's the essence of SNL right there.
Saturday Night Live celebrated its 40th anniversary this past week. Congratulations! The verdict? It was good enough.
