    Given your land shark reference I thought you'd recognize the song that would get you murdered by The Killer Christmas Trees...also from Season 1 (IIRC) of SNL.

    I could never support a presidential candidate who was not well-read.

    President Trump dismissed the youngest candidate in the Democratic field by comparing him to a caricature created decades before Pete Buttigieg was even born.

    “Alfred E. Neuman cannot become president of the United States,” Trump said when asked by Politico what he thought of Buttigieg, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Ind. The reference to the gaptoothed, big-eared boy made famous as a mascot for Mad magazine did just as much to show Trump’s age as Buttigieg’s.

    The magazine used the illustration on its cover back in 1956 as a write-in candidate for president. While fairly ubiquitous in pop culture, the popularity of the cartoon and the magazine peaked in the 1970s.

    Buttigieg, asked about the president’s swipe, admitted to not knowing the reference and trolled the president right back.

    "I’ll be honest. I had to Google that,” Buttigieg told reporters Friday. “I guess it’s just a generational thing. I didn’t get the reference. It’s kind of funny, I guess.”


    Mad magazine, whose Twitter bio is: “STILL IN PRINT,” in return trolled Buttigieg for not knowing the cartoon. “Who’s Pete Buttigieg? Must be a generational thing,” the magazine tweeted early Saturday morning.

    Ironically, so did The Washington Post...

    I remember when the Post and the rest of the media did the whole "To be fair..." thing and came to Trump's defense during the Second/Two Corinthians scandal of the 2016 campaign.

    They were all about making excuses for him for flubbing a reference about a text which has been fairly ubiquitous (starting in early modern English, anyway) since the 16th century.

    Of course, the popularity of the Bible peaked in about ________________
