An open letter to State Farm
This skit was mildly amusing in 2-minute doses once a week on Saturday Night Live 25 years ago. I don't know why you think that translates into "funny in 30-second doses repeated forty times over the course of a three hour football or baseball game," but take it from me: It really, really doesn't.
And just to cut you off at the pass- "Mr. Bill" was a great SNL skit in the late-70s. I don't want to see Mr. Bill and Sluggo trying to sell me insurance, either- though it would be more entertaining than this crap. And that's saying absolutely nothing.
Oh, and a side note to Mr. Carvey and Mr. Nealon? I don't want you guys to lose your houses because you can't pay your mortgages. I really don't. But if it's either continuing to watch you do these awful commercials or having you lose your houses? Hey, life sucks, guys. I'm sure there are plenty of cheap apartments in the less-fashionable neighborhoods of LA.
