'SNL' satan skit skewers Ashton, Penn State protesters

Jason Sudeikis burned Penn State protesters and Twitter-happy Ashton Kutcher in a wicked-good “Saturday Night Live” sketch this weekend.

Sudeikis reprised his devil character for the Weekend Update with Seth Meyers to comment on the scandal at Penn State.

The devil announced he was “through the roof happy” regarding what he thought was a recruiting scandal, noting he got his news from Ashton Kutcher’s Twitter feed.

After Meyers explained scandal is actually about child sex abuse, Sudeikis acted surprised. “I’m the prince of darkness, but I’m not a monster! This is awful,” the Devil said. “I’m sorry about my reaction, but this is the first I’ve heard of it.”

Then Sudeikis went after the Penn State students who protested the firing of head football coach Joe Paterno. (Amid news that former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky had allegedly molested children, Paterno was fired for failing to report his knowledge of at least one alleged incident to the police.)

Penn State students protested Paterno’s firing by rioting on campus and flipping over a news van.

“Guys, what are you doing?” Satan asked of the misguided protesters. “I know you like JoePa, but you gotta get out of the way on this one. Do you know how bad that made you look? There were cameras there. Those pictures go online and live forever. That’s why I created the internet.”

    It's not child abuse, chiedrln's science. School does not teach that we monkeys, this absurd proposed by creationists. Evolution does not say. Evolution is not faith, it is science science as one of the most powerful theories of gravity or the germ theory of disease. Do you mind chiedrln taught them? Religion is a personal thing, you can definitely teach the kids about it, but they should not be expected to choose a religion before they were old enough to understand. We do not know that chiedrln choose the political party to vote or 18 why they are more willing to accept the religion at a younger age? Imposing religion or politics to chiedrln is child abuse.

    I finally watched last Sundays episode of The Walking Dead last night. It really was pretty good. The best episode this season. It sure looks like next weeks episode is going to be super duper good. I hope the zombies get the girl that is sleeping with the asian guy. Also what do you think about Carl getting his own mom, Lori, pregnant? They havent revealed that yet but I bet they will in a future episode. That Lori is a skaaaaanky thing sleeping with all the guys. Plus the blond haired rambo lady shooting Carl. She is a dooodooohead. It was a good episode.

      OHHHHHHH my Gosh please end the bleeding....... SNL is going down hill faster than rosie odanlds career... Just please stop already... The actors are horrible the writing sucks! Just please stop already I am sure you can come up with a better show for this time slot? I would rather watch Family Guy re-runs. I think now the show is a disgrace to all the great actors and writers that were on the show. Come on guys give it up alraedy!!!!! I could go on for hours but for now this will do. This is my first time to blog about anything just to show you how much this show is horrible and a disgrace to Sat. Night television.
