'Fat Letters' Mentioned on SNL
Those controversial letters were the topic of a joke.
The school BMI notifications -- dubbed "fat letters" by some -- have made the rounds in local and national media reporting in the past week. But on Saturday, the topic showed up in an unexpected place: on Saturday Night Live.
On SNL's "Weekend Update With Seth Meyers," among the many jokes on the fake news broadcast was one that had to do with the BMI letters being sent home to parents in Massachusetts.
"Though they could have used gentler phrasing than, 'Ya kid's a wicked porkah,'" Meyers said in a thick Boston accent.
You can watch the video in a series of highlights on NBC's website (the BMI letters are mentioned toward the end of the clip).
Hey, might as well have a sense of humor, right?
