Don Pardo turned 90 and could still take you in a fight

The highlight of my weekend was going to Saturday Night Live’s first episode back from the writer’s strike.

Loved seeing Steve Martin make a guest appearance during Tina Fey’s opening monologue.

They did two parody commercials. (Which I'm only mentioning to make this post relevant.) The first was a fake drug ad for a “once a year period” pill called Annuale.

The second was for hot air balloon rides. The audience had a mixed reaction. I liked it, but only because my Mom and Dad have owned one since I was a kid.

And for the record, Don Pardo blew out all 90 of the candles on his birthday cake after they cut to the commercials.
