A “standout’ episode of Saturday Night Live roasted a town in the Hudson Valley for its name.

This past weekend I was down in Florida celebrating my Dad’s one-year transplant anniversary. My parents love watching Saturday Night Live.

My dad has fond memories of watching the show in the 1970s with his college friends in Plattsburgh, New York.

Personally, I used to watch SNL each week for many years. For no particular reason, I stopped. But this Saturday, Aubrey Plaza was hosting, so I was excited to watch with my parents.

I’m a big fan of Plaza for her roles in hit TV shows “Parks and Recreation” and “The White Lotus.” These two shows are completely different, but if you haven’t seen either, I highly recommend both.

I enjoyed Plaza’s episode, which the Guardian calls a “standout episode.” There were a number of hilarious sketches plus a bunch of cameos including President Joe Biden, Amy Poehler and Sharon Stone.

While enjoying the episode I was quite surprised when the Hudson Valley was mentioned.
