A Message From the Former President of the United States

…..George Bush

Announcer: The following is a message from the Former President of the United States.

George Bush: Good evening, my fellow Americans. This is George Bush. I was your president from 1989 to 1993. And, during that time, “Saturday Night Live” made fun of me on a fairly regular basis. Do I have any hard feelings about that? Yes, I do. But I’ll have my revenge, when the time is right. Not now – wouldn’t be prudent at this juncture. But revenge will be mine. Until then, I wish the show continued success.

And now, the host tonight. A young fellow named Dana Carvey has asked me to introduce the show. He’s a friend of mine, I know him well. Bar and I had him up at the White House. Walked off with a pen that had belonged to James Madison. Secret Service beat him up pretty good. I don’t think he’ll ever be “walking off” with anything else for a while. Bar and I are looking forward to watching the show, but I’m gonnas warn ya: I’m a channel surfer. And, if the sketches get long, I’m gonna flip right over to the “Tales From The Crypt”.

Just kidding, Dana. Bar and I are here for you tonight, to give you support. But as far as opening the show with “Live, from New York”, I’m not gonna do it. First of all: I’m in Houston; it wouldn’t be true. And, secondly: it’s just not something I do. So, Dana, have a good show. We’ll be watching. And don’t ever ask me to do anything again!

Announcer: This has been a message from the former President of the United States. “Live, from New York, it’s Saturday Night.”
