...and the Elf on the Shelf skit was about the only funny thing on the show.

The Khal Drogo Ghost Dojo Talk Show had some moments even if Momoa's timing was off. The whole premise was so 'meta' I was surprised that they gave it the #2 slot for the night.

I would accuse the writers of being on meth after watching tonight but this was some 'bath salts' level of WTF?

first we got the inexplicable '4th' ghost visiting Scrooge who I assume was gay (?) and ending with Tiny Tim and Scrooge twerking

then we got Michael Che's bizarre monologue about how much he loves his bidet

then a crazy-ass skit they actually filmed ahead of time and still decided to air about a guy meeting his girlfriend's family for the first time and playing hide and seek ending with the Dad homoerotically staring at his greased up body

It was almost like the writers tried to find the most bizarre ways they could humiliate Jason Momoa.

At least he was a trooper and went for it.

I thought it was hilarious. The Revenge of the Nerds spoof was another good one.

... add to that list the GE BIG BOY Appliances commercial and the “Rudolf the Bully” sketch.

I also got a kick out of Aidy Bryants’ 7-grade travel recommendations.

... and your right, not all of the sketches fired on all cylinders but Momoa did.

(Did anyone else notice that - except for portraying Tiny Tim - Kate had the night off?)

Good episode.

I like Jason Momoa. But I don’t think he’s been in a great movie yet.

I want those Big Boy appliances. That dishwasher and riding vacuum cleaner were awesome.

I didn’t watch that one all the way through. Never been a GoT fan.

Cecily Strong had only one sketch.

The hide and seek short probably would have been lame with another host but that cracked me up.

Good example of an actor with no comedy resume but a lot of enthusiasm, who gave it his all and ending up doing a good job and coming off pretty well.

good for him, seems like a nice guy

I was surprised to learn he was married to Lisa Bonet. She's more than 10 years older than him.

He’s 39 and she’s 51.

I never thought I would say this but I would rather have Mumford and Sons on the show than the boring rappers that have performed this season.

The short with Beck Bennett hiding behind the TV wall unit and playing hide and seek with Momoa was hilarious.

Overall I thought it was a decent episode and Momoa was really good, and yeah he was cracking me up during the hide and seek skit too.

What in that actual fuck was that all about? Painfully unfunny, went on and on for what felt like an eternity, and just plain gross.

How do you dry your ass?

Leave it wet and you get swamp ass. Dry it with toilet paper and your crack gets filled up with little gummy balls. And I would hope that the hand towels are off of the table...

How to Use a Bidet


Step 6: Dry off. You can use toilet paper or a towel in order to dry off. Often you will find a ring near the bidet with a towel hanging on it, and this may be to dry off your hands or nether region, or even to wipe up any water that has splashed out of the fixture when you rinse the bidet after using it.
