Dennis Jones: Thanks, Pam. We’ve been previously calling a tropical storm. It’s not upgraded to a category hurricane, as you see here, destroying everything in its path with incredible high winds. We’re calling this one Hurricane Chet. And that’s a white man’s name if I ever heard one.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge: So now we’re down to one.

Kenan Thompson: It’s not looking too goof for y’all today. In other news, a shopper was apprehended by security at Oceanside mall for assaulting a man who stepped on his Air Jordan’s.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge: Oh, I’m sorry. Did you say Air Jordan’s?

[Cut to Ego Nwodim and Alex Moffat]
