Thanks for the link OP. To this day, Louise Lasser is the funniest human I ever met. Just naturally funny.
There's no link.
I enjoyed the link, too. Very funny!
Louise Lasser has never been better than in that link.
I believe all tapes of the infamous Louise Lasser attempts to host SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE has been destroyed.
Don't go to OP's link. It gave me a virus.
Don't go to Louise Lasser. She gave me a virus.
Was that breakdown during her monologue real or just a parody of things that had been happening during rehearsal that week?
She looks high.
Didn't Louise Lasser try to assassinate President Ford?
A friend of mine clicked on OP's link.
Then she died.
I wasn't expecting Henry Kissinger to make a cameo in that clip... or Betty Ford! LOL -- the people they could get to do the show back then!
Thanks OP: that was hilarious.
"Mary Fartman, Mary Fartman?"
Best SNL parody ever. Thought that link was taken down long ago.
I don't get it. I clicked on the link, but then I just blacked out?
[quote]Didn't Louise Lasser try to assassinate President Ford?
Yes, but she's been out of prison for quite a while I think.
I didn't remember her Kate Smith impression. Thanks, OP!
she was one of my understudies in Funny Girl you know.
Wonder if she is still getting alimony from Woody Allen?
Mary Hartman Mary Hartman was one of the strangest things ever put on television.
R3, thanks for posting the added link. I didn't know she did that on The Tonight Show! When Carson looked into that trash can and flashed that expression at the audience, it was one of the funniest moments ever on television. And then she topped him!
I still remember it from when I saw it in the 70's. "What? Why are you laughing? It's not funny. No, really."
Just recently I saw an interview with Jane Curtin and she said she that was the shortest notice she ever had on SNL for a sketch. Apparently Lasser refused to do something at airtime and Curtin had to go on and wing it.
heres anuther of my favorite louise lasser moments this wun on mike douglas
What's this about Lucille Le Sueur?
Warning: There's a scary face that pops out at the end.
I'm afraid to click on these links. Please tell me it isn't something disgusting!!
I loved it. I didn't expect her singing to be that good, though. What was that she said at the end?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
