Last night’s edition of Saturday Night Live began with a parody of last week’s match-up between Vice-President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan.

The spoof featured a constantly laughing and interrupting Joe Biden and a Paul Ryan who offered no details. A typical exchange follows:

Biden: Martha, with all due respect, this is a bunch of malarkey.

Raddatz: A bunch of malarkey? …What does that mean?

Ryan: Uh, it’s Irish

Biden: No, no no. “Irish” is I come over there and smack that dumb look off your face.
