Live from New York it’s… Southern California


For those of you who didn’t stay awake past Josh Brolin’s opening monologue, Angelenos got skewered in a skit called “The Californians” on Saturday Night Live over the weekend. We’ll admit it: The bit, a mock soap opera in which blonde characters drink California wine, eat California avocados, obsessively fix their hair in a full-length mirror, and talk about their lives in terms of traffic made us laugh so hard we almost spit up the organic green tea we were sipping. “Just get on the ten and get out of here”—we’ll have to remember to yell that at somebody sometime soon. But those awful, gape-mouthed accents? Like, nice try guys.
