Thursday night's episode of "Saturday Night Live" makes as much sense calendar-wise as, say, bringing in Division III and former Lingerie Football League referees to run a real NFL game.

Alas, both have occurred.

And last night, both occurred in the same space as "SNL" Weekend Update's Thursday edition (that usually occurs during the prime Presidential election season) mocked the replacement refs. Watch the clip below. Kenan Thompson's face when he throws the flag each time cracks me up each time I watch it.
