On ‘SNL,’ Penn State Scandal Offends Even Satan
On “Saturday Night Live,” even the devil was offended by the Penn State child sex abuse scandal.
“SNL” cast member Jason Sudeikis reprised his role as Satan, appearing with red horns and pitchfork. The devil was informed by “Weekend Update” host Seth Meyers of sex charges against a former defensive coordinator and allegations that university officials failed to report the abuse.
Even he was disturbed by the news. Addressing Penn State students who protested football coach Joe Paterno’s firing, the devil spoke directly into the camera, asking, “Do you know how bad that made you look?”
Disgusted by the scandal, the devil says, “Evil isn’t what it used to be.”
He pledged to quit and said he would return to his old job: customer service for a cable TV company.
