Did ‘SNL’ Rip-Off Jumped the Snark?

Wellllll, no, not really.  But it’s really curious that no less than a month ago we posted a video of Taboo, the fifth member of the Black Eyed Peas, visiting the 4th hour of Today and then this past weekend SNL presented a sketch called “Our Time With Taboo and apl.de.ap.”  Sure, we hadn’t written any sketch featuring the weird, pale, vaguely Asian, definitely creepy Taboo.  And we’ve completely ignored apl.de.ap (wouldn’t even have been able to name him.  He’s just be “the one that’s not will.i.am”).  But the fact of that matter is that a few weeks ago we were pointing out this somewhat obscure, bizarre pop culture figure, bringing him to the masses, and now he’s the subject of a sketch on Saturday Night LiveFirst Mark McGrath and Don’t Forget the Lyrics and now this.  Where’s the justice?  Where’s the honor?  So this question is this: Saturday Night Live, have you been reading our diary?
