The newest example of this is the comedy skit performed on a program called Saturday Night Live. Speaking of “large,” this particular impersonator was certainly large in size… but small when it came to his lines.
The skit featured a woman whom I'm told is a famous humorist, Sarah Silverman, playing another performer named Joan Rivers, who had apparently passed away a short time ago, and was now seeking entrance to heaven. In heaven, she meets up with a number of other deceased public figures — one of which was this Ben Franklin character!
Heavenly Ben’s response to her witticisms was to laugh heartily, and declare, “I don’t get it.”
My dear readers, as I have said before, I truly enjoy jesting and humor of all sorts. And I will even find some amusement in a number of the depictions of myself staged by performers like this one. But I take issue with the idea that a Franklin transported to the future (as I have been) is so clueless about everything. As I have proven to you, through the many reports contained in this blog over the past year or so, I am fully aware and informed of what is happening here in the 21st century. And if there is some subject that I have not yet touched on, or personally investigated, then it is a certainty that I will do so immediately upon hearing about it.
I do “get it,” in the words of that Ben Franklin pretender. And do not let anyone tell you otherwise.
Your humble servant,
