Willie… Kenan Thompson[Starts with Michael Che in his set.]
Michael Che: It’s the beginning of February which is the shortest month and often the coldest. It can be hard on your spirit, so here to cheer us up is the most optimistic guy I know, my neighbor Willie.[Willie slides in]
Willie: Ay! Ay, Michael! Oh, man! I just love February. 28 days of fun and excitement. By the way, ground hog saw his shadow yesterday. So you know what that means?
Michael Che: What’s that, Willie?
Willie: Six more weeks of leaving your oven door open for heat.
Michael Che: That’s really dangerous, man.
Willie: Ay! President’s day is coming, Michael! That means mattress sales.
Michael Che: Okay.
Willie: You know, last year I got a mattress for only 36.
Michael Che: Really? where?
Willie: The police auction. Oh! It’s a nice one too. When you turn on the black light, you can see all the little constellation.
Michael Che: That’s disgusting, man.
Willie: Michael! You will never guess what I did for this Black History Month.
Michael Che: Do I wanna know?
Willie: Yeah. I went and traced my ancestry.
Michael Che: That’s pretty cool, Willie. I was going to do that.
Willie: You should, Michael. It’s really easy. All you gotta do is send your full name, social security number and all your bank information to West Africa and you wait for the results.
Michael Che: Willie, that sounds like a scam.
Willie: Well, excuse me, Michael, but do you really think that the grand nephew of Prince Hakutamatata would fall for a scam?
Michael Che: Nah! I guess he wouldn’t, man.
Willie: You know, it’s like my ancestors used to always say back in the village. You had us a free boat trip!
Michael Che: Whoa! Whoa! Willie, Willie, how is this supposed to make anybody feel better about February?
Willie: Well, what about Valentine’s day, Michael? Don’t you have somebody special to spend it with?
Michael Che: No.
Willie: That’s alright. I’m a little embarrassed to say this but I bought one of those super realistic sex dolls off the internet.
Michael Che: Really?
Willie: Yup. I caved. Got a great deal on it too. She looks so realistic. Long white hair, long sharp nails, skin cold to the touching.
Michael Che: Oh, no.
Willie: Limbs, stiff as a board. As soon as I unzipped that big black bag and saw her wide eye staring back at me, I knew I was going to be in the house all night.
Michael Che: Alright, man.
Willie: Michael, it’s like they always say, “Sex dolls don’t have toe tags, Willie!”
Michael Che: Willie, super realistic, huh?
Michael Che: So, Willie, you’re gonna watch Super Bowl?
Willie: Oh, no, no, no. I’m gonna watch the Puppy Bowl instead. Yeah. My old dog Lucias used to be a coach.
Michael Che: Your dog Lucias coached the Puppy Bowl?
Willie: Yeah. He sure did. Old Lucias taught those puppies how to run really fast. And then he jumped on top of them and pinned their shoulders down to teach them how to tackle. And then he put his paw over their mouths to teach em’ how to keep quiet.
Michael Che: No, no, man.
Willie: It’s like they always say, Michael, “Your dog is a puppy molester, Willie!”
Michael Che: Alright! My neighbor, Willie, everybody. For Weekend Update, I’m Michael Che.
Colin Jost: I’m Colin Jost. Goodnight.
