This Week in Elitism: Limos for comedians? You've got to be kidding me.

Done had her baby tonight; maybe a limo took her to the hospital.

I was listening to NPR this morning, while eating breakfast, styling my hair, and, oh yes, driving my car in the parking lot known as Interstate 35W South, when I heard a snippet of a convo with a former SNL cast member. Apparently, the job is pretty cushy: canoodling with celebs, tables held at the "it" spots, and limos to take you anywhere you need to go. The part that struck me as odd was the fact that each cast member gets their own limo. Their own limo? So they line up after the show and each person gets into them one by one? Isn't it lonely to be in a limo by yourself? It's like a vacuum for comedy.

That, combined with the fact that the SNLers seem so homespun/salt-o-the-earth/regular, makes me feel like the limos are overkill. Wouldn't it be cooler if they all shared a cab and every they rode in it different people took turns standing up out of the moonroof and waving to pedestrians? That would boost popularity among NYC Joe the Plumbers, since that's how they do it on Long Island. And, as we all know, not many SNL members can shake it when they go out on their own.

Of course, it would be infinitely more funny if they each had their own clown car and had to drive in circles anywhere they went. That would boost their popularity among me's.

    I've got to assume that if they wanted to share a limo with a fellow cast member, they could, but that there's just only so many hookers a limo can hold, you know?
