Sanity break: Bronx Zoo cobra ‘visits’ SNL’s Weekend Update
What’s 20 inches long, venomous, and has captured the country’s attention for the past week and a half? The Egyptian Cobra that escaped from New York’s Bronx Zoo, of course!
The reptile was found 100 ft. from its enclosure in the zoo after being missing for a week, but something tells us here at Raw that the snake won’t go missing from the zeitgeist anytime soon. Last night, Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update spoofed the zookeeper responsible for the cobra’s escape.
Watch the clip, originally broadcast on Saturday Night Live on April 2, 2011, below.
