Kristen Wiig Does Her Best Paula Deen Impression
Although not quite as much fun as the time Betty White expounded upon the virtues of her dusty muffin, Saturday Night Live's latest foray into the food demimonde is still respectably unnerving. This weekend's episode saw Kristen Wiig do her best impression of Paula Deen in a commercial for Paula Deen's Big Ol' Soakems, eight-ply towels designed to soak up all of the "booter" and "ahwl" in Deen's food. "Health professionals are backing up my back bumper about making little children fat!" she wails, before eating butter straight out of the container. It's hypnotically gross and kind of funny -- much like an actual episode of Paula's Home Cooking.
